This week, we continued building momentum by shipping several video pitch and dashboard updates (like stats on the dashboard and the ability to email your pitch right on the platform!) and by finding new Crashers.

Here’s a closer look at our team’s work this week.

Some cool new product updates

  • Sending your pitches to hiring managers got way easier—you can now email your video pitches right from Crash
  • You can now see your pitch stats right on your dashboard!
  • You’ve now got the ability to manually edit your portfolio project on your video pitch
  • Your dashboard will show you more relevant jobs based on the roles you’re interested in!
  • Video recording time is increased to 1:30

This week, our team…

  • Sourced jobs for Crashers
  • Wrote, edited, and published content
  • Squashed bugs
  • Fixed the mobile styling on the Crash dashboard and made some Safari styling fixes
  • Isaac had a handful of investor calls (and got caught up on hundreds of emails, Voxes, and uncountable Slack messages)
  • Talked with hiring managers, users, and partners
  • Found, reached out to, and onboarded new users
  • Recorded some podcast interviews
  • Continued refining our definition of our ideal early user
  • Worked on updating our sign-up flow
  • Fix the social sharing description for video pitches
