Welcome Eric Allen!
Staffing up is hard. The first few hires are so important and sometimes even after sifting through resumes, scouring portfolios, and performing interviews both offsite and on, you have to take a leap of faith.
Then again, sometimes someone shows up on your doorstep with such a track record of doing exactly the kind of stuff you’re looking for, with a long track record of startup work, making well-engineered somethings from nothings, and with such enthusiasm that you’d be worried if not for the fact that they’re awesome.
Living in a 260 square foot micro-loft, Eric is no stranger to making efficient use of scarce resources. Eric’s first tasks are making the back-end service even more scalable, and further developing the Planner, readying it for the first round of third-party developers.
The Imp is growing, and we’ve got a few more fantastic people starting in the next few weeks. As always, we’re looking for great additions to the team. If you love what we’re doing, and have chops in front-end or back-end engineering, or embedded programming, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and you may get to work with Eric and the rest of us!
