Longer version

Nice to Haves:

  • Experience designing for mobile devices and their idiosyncrasies
  • Interest in design research and usability studies
  • Prototyping with design tools or code

General traits:

  • Demonstrated personal initiative in the past (leadership roles in extra-curriculars, side projects)
  • High introspection (via meditation practice, journaling, art, travel, or non-required writing)
  • Servant mindset — “How can I take care of this on behalf of others for the benefit of all?”
  • Growth mindset — problems are opportunities, impossibilities are challenges, life is best outside of the comfort zone
  • Lack of ego, a hunger for feedback and improvement
  • Abundance mindset — gratitude for what you have, preference for non zero-sum games
  • Personal philosophy that can be clearly stated and that can be questioned and examined
  • Contrarian’s eye — what are others missing here? What doesn’t make sense? What is overlooked because it’s obvious?
  • Systems level thinking — ability to reason on the micro, macro, and especially meta levels in one system or multiple.
  • Design thinking — How is my framing of the situation affecting the users’ experience? What other ways could I combine these elements with same effect?
  • Detail orientation and precise task habits

Extra on top:

  • Past or future interest in the works of Ed Catmull, Peter Thiel, Kevin Kelly, Ray Dalio, John Keats, Douglas Hofstadter, Joseph Campbell.
  • Experience working remotely.
  • Experience with startups.
  • Interest in mental models and a few favorites of your own.

On Experience:

No specific kind of experience is required, per se. Experience is neither sufficient nor necessary when trying to predict success.

  • Experience may bias people towards ideas that prevent them from operating from first principles.
  • Experience may accelerate learning because of our human ability to pattern match.

That being said, it is difficult to assess your skills without seeing your past work, so experience helps in that case.
Overall, we’re looking for a mixture of qualities, with emphasis on hunger for growth, humility, and resourcefulness.
