I know that when I start looking for new freelancers or even another full-time member for the team at LooseKeys, it’s not the money that’s going to get people wanting to work with me. By no means does that mean I’m undervaluing people’s work or trying to get them to cut me a deal. Since we’re working with a lot of early stage startups the margins aren’t really there. My hope is that most people aren’t just looking for pay and vacation time but that it’s more about the work and the environment. I think that’s the reality of many startups and productive studios. They are pulling in the talent not because of the pay but because people want to be apart of the work and culture. I might me hustlin’ over here on every project but it’s not always because the pay is driving me, it’s typically the work and the amazing clients that I’m able to work with.
