If you are trying to hire a great person who has competing offers from a faang company:

  1. Make sure you move really quickly to give them the offer and answer to all their questions sp they can see just how much faster a startup moves than a big tech company.

  2. Make sure you follow up with them personally and ask everyone on your team to send them a personalized follow-up email.

  3. Emphasize how big companies often shut down projects and have a lots of wasted effort (which can be really demotivating), whereas startups always work on things that directly impact their users.
