Great Job Descriptions Are Important

I know I have fawned over expensify a fair bit recently.  I wanted to just point out one more thing.  They recently posted a great job description.

I have always said that I felt that a good job description was a leading indicator of how much the company thought about and cared about a position.  Someone that doesn’t have the time to write a good job description probably won’t be a great manager.  Similarly, a slap-dash job description probably indicates a position that is not appropriately valued by the organization.

Also, asking someone to do some work is a great practice because it identifies people that really care and it is a lot more meaningful metric for work quality than a typical interview process.

No question, I will nick parts of this for future job descriptions I am writing.
