This is our second post, god I love talking about what is happenin. Today marks month numero dos, and the team is officially grown to 5 people.
Meaning two members are new: Florent, AKA Designer dude, and AKA the man with the castle (He seriously owns a castle). And Jean François, AKA JFK. Both are awesome, and both are boosting our product development momentum. We met them at Startup Weekend, and let me tell you, if you are looking for talented team members, and if you want to see them work before making a decision, attend a startup weekend.
Here is Florent’s story. Designer dude joined my girlfriend’s team, and at around 11 pm on Saturday, before we left to get some rest at home, I explained to him exactly how I envisioned the website to work. He said alright, and I expected him to work on it the next day. I left and came back the next morning. He was wearing the same shirt, one eye was half shut because he was so tired, and he asked me to come check something out. He opened up his laptop, and everything we talked about the night before was done, and it was done very well. He didn’t sleep at all, just to be able to deliver. Now that’s awesome.
JFK on the other hand is the man with 5 hands. Seriously he can code, he can design, he writes business plans, and knows all about UX. He’s like a walking startup. At startup weekend, he set the bar high. 24 hours in, and his website was live and functional. Some teams didn’t even agree on the entire concept, while JFK was killing it.
We are super happy with the team, and we have some awesome things coming up, so please, stay tuned…
