About You
 
You are Brilliant and highly ambitious. Maybe you’ve worked as a senior engineer or a team lead at a big, respectable software company (read MAANG and similar). Maybe you’re a seasoned pro at the startup game. Now you’re looking to step up in a big way. You love to code, but you want to do more. You’re ready to build a team of developers, bring a new product to a large market, and take full control of your career and your vision.

This may be a big leap for you, but it’s a leap you’re ready to take. You realize that great power will come with great responsibility, and that doesn’t scare you. You want to take on the world (and win).
