I hadn’t heard the term growth hacker until a couple of months ago and now everyone is using it. Where did that come from? What does it even mean? Why does everyone need to give themselves a pompous sounding job title these days?
I get very grumpy about job titles. We’re a limited company in the UK so I use “Managing Director” most often as my official job title as that describes my function in the business. If someone phones up and wants to talk about the business - rather than our product - then I’m the Director they probably want to speak to, and company Director is a legal role/function. I hear people use CEO, despite being a one person business, and then the whole “Founder” thing, which kind of makes sense as a descriptor, “I started this”.
What do you all call yourselves?
