When things aren’t working, it’s tempting to simply build more product.

But, building your way out of a problem rarely works.

There are two reasons:

  1. If users are leaving your product, only a few of them will ever use your new features.

  2. The new features have little impact on getting those remaining users to engage with the product.

This article by Andrew Chen dives into a few tips on:

  • Why product builders make these two mistakes and how to avoid them

  • How to pick the next feature that might save your product

Jobs

I found 8 open job roles at a few YC startups.

It’s a mix of engineering, product, and sales. Check them out on my job board.

Also, on my job board you’ll see that I started a job referral program —It’s an opportunity for you to make some $$$ off your network.

Every week, I’ll add new startups jobs to that list.

Know someone great for a position? Refer them. Takes less than a minute.
