Lifting the lid on how we hire designers(

almost 5 years ago from Tom Petty, Head of UX & Design at GoCardless

  • Henry, almost 5 years ago

    For me, this is something that's often overlooked, but is super important in a company of any stage, but especially a startup like GoCardless:

    Hunger to learn & develop

    Experience is important. Knowing what you know and accepting what you don't know is important. Knowing when to stand your ground or when to walk away is important. Most important though, IMO, is to have that hunger and acceptance that we're all a WIP and work to improve every day.

    You want people like that on your team - it raises the bar for everyone and sets the right tone of humility/hungerness > hubris.
