Note: This is part of a series of posts highlighting talks from the BigWP New York meetup at The New York Post on the evening of June 11.
We often hear about scaling WordPress sites, but what about scaling your WordPress developers?
According to Aaron, there are various models for finding the right people for a team, like T-shaped people and tree-shaped people. But what about Rorschach-shaped people?
When Aaron conducts job interviews, he prioritizes candidates who value learning. His number one priority? Building a team of people who are able to find creative solutions, rather than clever solutions. To do so, Jorbin has a few recommendations. These include proactively identifying weak spots (like a lack of diversity) and encouraging each person to find their “superpower.”
