Hey Elliot, really love the concept! One suggestion I have is to potentially tie a dollar value to what's being offered. For example, one ad I see says that I'll get 50 free meals...but what does that equal out to in dollar value? An estimated value would be great.
The example you provided isn't spec work. Perhaps the person who responded simply misread your example. I've applied for positions in the past that either encouraged or required applicants to record a video explaining why they were interested in the position and how they could add value. Sometimes they have asked for the video in the actual application and other times it comes a little further in the process, just after an initial phone screening.
Is it inconvenient and awkward? Sure, it can be. Am I being asked to do something ridiculous? Not at all. It may not necessarily be the right approach to hiring -- I don't have the answer to that -- but, in my opinion, it's perfectly acceptable.
It's clean and simple. I like that. I noticed that the case study titles fall off when viewing the site on mobile. It would be nice to continue to have context as to what you're about to tap. :)
Neat game. Is pretty much Paperboy on Super Nintendo.
Looking forward to trying it out! Out of curiosity, how large are the beta waves?
Will the initial beta be rolled out primarily to influencers? I'd be curious to know how large the initial beta wave will be. Really looking forward to trying this out!
The wall of text located above the fold feels a bit much. Combined with the background illustration, it's a little difficult for me to focus.
I don't understand why people are freaking out about the whole thing. One company moves away from it and suddenly it's dying? This isn't the vibe I got from this specific article, but over the past week I have definitely gotten that vibe from other articles.
I totally agree that it's a result of a bigger problem.
Be nice. Or else.
