Hi Mitchell

Thanks for the AMA. ❤️ Big fan of Hashicorp and the Open Source projects you have built. I have the following 3 questions for you:

  • In your opinion, what is the best way to recruit and retain a great team?
  • What are some interesting ways to promote and monetize Open Source work?
  • What non-technical aspects do you examine when hiring engineers?

Lastly, do you think cats are cuter than dogs? 😃

Currently focussed on [every programming languages and all of the projects]

So your interview would involve giving me horrible broken code, impossible deadlines, and then I'll be spending that time justifying why it has to be fixed first? I'm not sure I'd want to work there after that...
