perpetual-pivotation

When a start-up pivots so many times it can no longer stop it's pivoting creating an endless cycle of changing your business direction or purpose.

founder 1: "we should change this B2B to a B2C with a B2B SaaS back-end admin console"
founder 2: " yeah but just yesterday we were the uber for cat-sitting, if we keep pivoting we may never stop and end up in a perpetual-pivotation.

Full stack engineer

We want to hire you to work on all parts of the stack because we cannot afford specialized engineers for the different technical stack pieces and feel it's better to start the stack being sub-par instead of having expertise in each stack layer.

We are looking for a full-stack engineering to join our start-up, the next Google!

Delivery

One of the species of apps that keep getting made. They're really just digitized indexes of local businesses that market their service really well, get cheap couriers, and establish good partnerships with local vendors. They're not quite scalable, but many have become profitable parts of their community (DoorDash, WeDeliver). It is estimated that every year:
Hundreds of thousands of variants of delivery apps are pitched
Thousands are built to an MVP
A couple hundred end up creating a sustainable business around delivering things faster at a local scale

Anna: So what do you do for a living Josh?
Joshua: Oh I own DeliverData, a Delivery app that delivers stuff faster
Anna: That's nifty! At least your company's name makes sense

Thousands are built to an MVP
A couple hundred end up on the app store as different niche apps after the companies pivoted
