Nice to meet you!
We started the company with 4 people and before I realize it, we are now a team of over 150 people that come from different background and industry. Uniquely a few of us come from the media industry and that might be the reason we are growing.
None of our editorial team had previous work experience in writing when they first started, not a single person in our sales team had an experience in selling ads, which in fact some of them used to be bankers, secretary, chef, engineer, public relation to religious person meant to be a priest. However, all of them have given unique contributions in helping the company to expand.
Our basic concept when recruiting people is simply “ placing the right person on the wrong position”, and so far it works quite well.
