It’s easy to gravitate toward people who are just like us and whose trajectories look like our own. Similarity is comfortable, and surrounding yourself with people who took identical paths makes it easier to find common ground.
Working at a startup is one of the most rewarding and fulfilling opportunities I’ve ever had. As one of the lucky individuals who joined Midaxo early on, I’ve had the opportunity to watch the company grow from being a toddler who is exploring a brand new world into a more mature adult who knows what they need to do next. As we grow, we know that in order to stay true to who we are, we need to capture the values we embody as a company. In defining our values, we are creating the foundation to guide us as we continue to grow as an organization.
As a talent manager at a growth stage startup, my biggest challenge is filling positions quickly with the best possible candidates. Naturally, that means looking for people with the skills they need to be rock stars in their roles. That also means searching for people that we know will bring a variety of different perspectives to the company.
