DNSimple is growing our team in 2020, and one of the positions I’ve been considering adding is a General Manager. After discussing with one of the current DNSimple team members about what my expectations are for this new hire, I started thinking about a different twist on the role, and I’d like to get feedback from the Bootstrapped folks.
I want to hire a developer that can help me automate some of our non-automated business processes. In return I will pay said developer (of course) and perhaps more importantly I will mentor them on the tools and techniques that I’ve used over the last 10 years to operate DNSimple. The ideal candidate will be a developer looking to launch their own sustainable, profitable, business. I would expect them to stay on for 1 to 2 years, helping my automate, while I help them improve their operational skills.
