I’m not a programmer or engineer but as a tech journalist I have an interest in start up culture. I wanted to offer you kudos for your respectful response regarding interviewing job candidates. I talk to interesting people doing interesting things everyday (honestly the constant learning is the best part of my work) and becoming meaningfully employed is becoming harder in so many sectors that preference freelance, casual and contract employees (at least here in Berlin). It’s actually nice to hear of an employer who understands work experience as bringing skills to a company that has it’s own culture and wants a great team of individuals that can work together.
