Early Stage @ Before You Apply

Hey! We're the folks behind Before You Apply. This page—a "team profile" of us ourselves—is an example of what we're building. It's a singularly powerful link to compel job seekers (you) to apply to join our team—or decide we're meh and not apply, saving both of us time. We got our start in early 2020 as a project within Job Portraits, a San Francisco-based creative agency, and today we're a quickly growing team in our own right.

What do you make, who is it for, and why do they care?

Why is this type of content and this type of platform appealing?

Does the company represent a thesis about how the world is changing?

Who is your best user and why do they specifically like you?

What level of autonomy do you have and what challenges does that present?

What is the most valid criticism the company has received?

How has your perception of the company changed since you joined?

What are the hours like and is remote work permitted?

How should candidates prepare for interviews?

When you interview candidates are there red flags you keep an eye out for?

For the team to be more effective, what needs to improve?

Feeling like a match?
