Anyone who has worked at a startup will tell you, it’s not for everyone. It takes a certain type of character to flourish in the environment.
You need to be independent, adaptable and a quick learner. If you’re the type of person who looks for stability and process, a structured 9-5 then it’s probably not the place for you.
That said, there’s great value in working in such a high growth environment that goes beyond adding experience to your CV.
For tech talent such as engineers, developers and product managers the startup environment provides the perfect conditions to grow both your technical ability and those all-important soft skills.
