Is joining a startup right for you? (EP .06)

In this episode I’m in conversation with Miles Reiter. Miles is both UX Designer and Product Manager at Bolstra, a Saas business that has developed a customer success management platform based out of Indianapolis in the United States of America.

We got deep into what it is like being the first hire in a startup, and more than that, how to tell if you’re geared up for the baptism of fire that comes with joining a startup straight out of school.

Miles tells us about his degree in infomatics and its potential for creating great digital products, we discuss our favourite reads of 2018 and other ways to seek advice and develop your skills when you are the design-team of one.
