i think its flatfile...
I NEED THIS FOR WORK.
Please shoot me an alpha version for my team to test!
I think it's important to note the type of experience a person learns over time. I'd hope my newly hired team lead has an actual interest in leading, opposed to pushing a certain kind of result.

as a person who can use everything without the need for assistance, and who isn't as seasoned in the industry as others, I often forget about keeping my designs accessible.
I thought their callouts to that were great – it reminded me to keep that in mind.
It wasn't a man trying to gut punch a woman thing in any way they could; it's a designer helping the industry get better.
Granted, I'm a white dude; maybe any criticism at all is harmful for the advancement of better diversity in the industry. To that, I just don't know. But I'm a superfan of retreats like these.
Hey Ryan! Congrats!
Some unsolicited UX advice from an industry UXer: Your site is pretty dope for the most part, but I would advise considering playing around with the headers and content – right now, the content below your headers conflict with the header weights and makes the page a bit hard to follow fluidly from top to bottom.
In particular, if you look at the "How does it work" section on your home page, the blue links, then the blue quote line, then the left justified "Step One" etc., and the large numbers all appear to have the same visual hierarchy.
I think the blue links can stay, but I'd 1.) reduce the weight of the blue quotation line, 2.) left justify and reduce the size of the step numbers, and 3.) place "step one" in-line with "Submit your startup,' etc.
Just my opinion!
Great site overall, otherwise – proof is in your success :D
Nah. My blatant, black & white comment was definitely an emotionally charged response to how strongly I feel against the OP.
I dig games; I don't dig microtransactions.
This is dark UX and should be avoided. The goal of a product is to solve a need, not create one.
i think it's more likely they defaulted to what they use it for. i think it was a mistake on their part.
