To scale a business, you need to ensure you have the capacity and capabilities to do so, especially if you want to scale quickly. We met with Chris Ashby, UX/UI Design Lead at BrewDog to understand how they use YunoJuno to scale their teams and grow their business with freelancer
What advantages do freelancers bring to a scaling business?
Simply put, freelancers allow us to quickly scale our resources across a wide variety of skill sets, based on the needs of any given project or product. At BrewDog we are always exploring, designing or building something new, working rapidly and setting ourselves crazy goals, meaning our priorities and focus often changes on a daily basis. This also means that to accomplish those goals we often have to push ourselves beyond what we can personally achieve, and beyond what is possible with our internal teams. Freelancers offer us the perfect balance of short term flexibility combined with brand knowledge and industry experience. What’s more is that by hiring freelancers, it also gives us the chance to work with a multitude of people, across multiple projects, in a very short space of time, giving us a much quicker view of who are great cultural fits. We have a very fast paced culture, and are uncompromising in our approach to our work, which makes this an invaluable tool.
