I currently work for Less Wrong, as the fourth of four people on the team. We recently considered hiring, and trialed a few candidates, but decided not to for now. 2019-01-28 Jim Babcock Jeff Kaufman LessWrong 2.0 Oliver Habryka, Ben Pace, Raymond Arnold, Jim Babcock Hiring-related notice Rationality improvement Jim Babcock, the fourth person to join LessWrong 2.0 (after Oliver Habryka, Ben Pace, and Raymond Arnold) describes why, after initially looking for a while for more developers to join the organization, they ultimately decided not to hire for now unless they found an exceptional candidate. The comment is in response to a post "Simultaneous Shortage and Oversupply" by Jeff Kaufman, noting that a lot of people are interested in applying to organizations related to effective altruism, but the organizations still take a long time to fill their job postings
