    figure out what we want/need

    ASK: could we put together a survey asking everybody what extra expertise would be helpful?

  • find people who might be a match

    • networking
    • outbound
    • inbound
  • Screen/Recruit

    trust but verify

    Not sure what the current system is here (though the Wiki does mention one). Evaluating a number of tools that might be a good fit.

  • Onboarding

    get them up and running
    My onboarding was a little unguided

    This could be a test of an employee… self-starting is a nice trait but if we want to try measuring that we should do it deliberately.

    In the more general case here are some of the things that I had some question marks on.

    • Don’t know what accounts I need
    • Don’t know who to talk to to get them
    • Don’t know how to get ahold of him/her
    • Don’t know what I should be working on
  • networking

    • in general make a bunch of nerdy friends
    • meetups, seminars, clubs, electronic stores
  • outbound

    • actively look for companies that require similar talent (poach)
    • look for blogs/publications/open source projects for enthusiasts (and people they know)

    idea: maybe hire freelancers with some tricky little task and recruit ones that impress us

  • inbound

    • the website could use a little work
    • other ways to draw eyeballs to us and demonstrate culture
      • “Culture is to recruiting as product is to marketing”
      • blogs posts, StackOverflow, Hackathons, Easter Eggs, company events
  • idea: a contest where the winner gets their name engraved into the satellite

    idea: pretty badass to have a live image of the Earth from one of our satellite’s as the homepage background

  • Actually I don’t really know anyone, their history, or their realm of experience/expertise.

    ASK: is a centralized contact info/bio/expertise page something that'd be valuable to create?

  • Not well acquainted with IRC. Managed to get account but still have to learn.

    Putting together a list of features that people want in their communication tool would be interesting.

  • I got access to Atlassian but it was a little… non-intuitive (at least compared to tools like Trello or )

    Training definitely required.

    the process is a little unclear. for instance I ran into a problem on one of the repos where the code wouldn't build. Not sure where to put this. Like the obc-server instructions fail because there's no wscript file in one of the libraries (which itself is a seperate repo, or needs to be)

  • Wiki shares the problem that plagues all wikis. Stuff is outdated but it’s not clear what.

    Tests stay up to date because they break if the code does. Documentation needs to do the same thing.

  • Strikingly was a website in our YC-batch.

    ASK: do we have a designer onboard? if not, objections to mocking up a page there?

  • Does Meldium support the sites we use?

    This was drawn from the drawn from our Google Doc.

    If a site isn’t supported you can still track and share the password. You just can’t automatically login and take advantage of other features.
