No More Hustleporn: Working Part-Time While Building

Tweet by Zac Denham

Working @mightyapp, bootstrapping

For the past four months, I've been working part-time (Mon-Wed) at @MightyApp whilst building my own company.

I gotta say—its been a stupendous experience and bolstered my growth as a founder & engineer in ways that surprised me... 🧵

The role has helped me offset some of the risk of starting a company by providing regular income, while still allowing enough free time to tinker and build traction / confidence in my business. But that's not the half of it.

The best part is getting an "inside look" at startup best practices from a formidable serial founder @Suhail and a stellar early team.

I'm continually impressed by how the team executes on difficult technical challenges—top notch people to learn from.

The team welcomed me into the fold while supporting and taking interest in my outside endeavors. Folks at Mighty will often ask how my startup is going & provide feedback / mentorship.

Not to mention, feature work at Mighty is highly engaging. I can't think of a better way to evolve a deep understanding of the web than improving the browser itself.

Overall, very happy / grateful for the gig and bullish on Mighty - 10/10 would recommend 😊
