Hey folks – You may have noticed a slight slowdown in the blog a few weeks ago. That’s because we were having our company meeting in Portland . Since we were all together, Best Job Ever, a popular web series about the best jobs in the tech industry, sent the ever-engaging Veronica Belmont (host of Techzilla and whole lot more) to interview us about how a small, mostly-virtual company like Red Giant is able to make such an impact in our industry – and what we look for when hiring a new team member.
Above – From left to right: Micah Sharp (RG’s General Manager), Veronica Belmont, and Aharon Rabinowitz (RG’s Director of Communities… Also known as me). Below – Left: Micah talks about what’s needed to work in plug-in development (hint it’s not all about technical knowledge). Right: I discuss the importance of being self-motivated when you work virtually, and the one o’clock pants rule.
The interview will be posted eventually, but I just wanted to say that the 2 hours we spent talking to Veronica and the Best Job Ever crew really helped reminded me of how lucky I am to be working with such an amazing team. We’re a small company with a big footprint, and that only happens when people are passionate about what they do, are truly dedicated to making good products, and most importantly, are dedicated to making the customer experience as good as it can be.
It also comes from having amazing customers who do amazing things, and who care about the products we create (that’s you). And so, we really appreciate the work you do and the great feedback we get from you. We know that as good as things are, nothing is ever perfect. If you guys ever need to let us know something (good or bad), you can post a comment in the blog, send us a tweet on Twitter, or just contact us on this site. We’re listening.
