The Crash Report: 11.16.2019

November 2019

This week, we were all about marketing–well, marketing-related content. We spent the weekdays promoting marketing resources–a new ultimate guide to breaking to marketing; great companies to study; and stories from Amanda Jones, Brad Matthews, and my own here.

But we also did a bit more this week to bring Crash forward. Here’s a breakdown of our work.

Marketing

  • Did a lot of email and personal outreach to promote content and reach hiring managers
  • Reviewed and worked on the job hunt process with Crashers
  • Worked on writing, editing, designing, and reviewing content for next week (we’ll be focusing on a new entry-level role next week!)
  • Answered more How to Pitch requests–check out Mitchell’s answers for an account services internship and a create-your-own-role opening!
  • Jeremy launched three new landing pages for ad tests
  • Isaac and Mitchell wrote newsletters–check out Isaac’s here, and Mitchell’s first-career-job newsletter here
  • Morgan created and updated several landing pages in Webflow
  • Jeremy launched Google and Quora ads for Crash, started optimizations, and worked on growing the Crash Instagram account

In Product and Engineering

  • Shipped metrics trackers
  • Spec’d out the “Crash Process”–a product test the team brainstormed last week–and pitch upgrades
  • Working on an all-post page
  • Shipped performance improvements, performance upgrades for posts, fixed some memory leaks, and added query performance tooling
  • Chuck had a call with a potential customer who wants to break into data science
  • Fixed a custom tech bug on the tech stack
  • Ilya continued doing style-refactoring
  • Started decoupling the tailored pitches from profiles
  • Investigated VIDEOASK integration

Welcoming Jeremy to the Team

This week, we got a new full-time member: Jérémy Chevallier! He’s joining us to do growth marketing, and we’re excited to grow with him.
