We were a very small team for a very long time. We were probably 15 people two years ago.
So, we were kind of in that phase of building the company where we only hired as many as we could fund ourselves and then we hired freshers.
I think it is amazing that we try to hire freshers and build them up rather than hiring and throwing money at lateral hires.
Since we are not funded, we have very limited options, and they work for us somehow.
