Hiring is hard for Seed and Series A companies
You're growing and changing, fast
Product pivots, changing customer profiles, and internal structural changes. You're hiring not just for today, but for an uncertain future.
You need to do things you haven't done before
Unique roles. First-ever roles. Technical experts in new areas. Early-stage companies routinely hire for demanding roles they may not fully understand themselves.
You can't wait around for things to work
Big goals, limited runway. With core team members already wearing as many hats as they can, they can't afford to leave a key role unfilled for months.
