Over the last eight years, there has been one consistent downside to recruitment: the lack of focus on growth.
Portfolios represent work that's already been done, not the problems a creative is looking to solve next. Resumes are a long list of challenges previously conquered. While repo hosting services like GitHub allow for experimentation and collaboration, they don't clearly communicate what a developer wants to try more of in the future, to cut through all of the noise coming their way.
No matter how renown an artist becomes, their desire to try new things and grow in diverse ways doesn't tire. This is what sets apart the good from the great. So today, we are thrilled to finally announce Auctor. We champion exclusive collaborations for the world's best artists, software engineers, product designers, illustrators, filmmakers, product managers, visual designers and more.
We've been working on many things over the last five months but we are happy to share our first public collaboration brought to you by the lovely Tobias Van Schneider, Verena Michelitsch and NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
Together, the group designed a gift given out by the new Director of NASA JPL to staff, focused on "artifacts from a future world." The following note from the Director was also included:
"We stand at the edge of possibility.
We’ve traveled to the gas giants Jupiter and Saturn, and gazed upon their strange variety of moons. We’ve danced with asteroids and comets, and swept through the vast deserts of Mars. We’ve probed the mysteries of Dark Matter and Dark Energy, and become better acquainted with our own mother planet Earth.
What new discoveries are yet to be made? The future of exploration depends on our vision and audacity. By working together, we can do more than gaze beyond the horizon – we can travel there.
The stars are calling, and we must go."
We couldn't be more excited for what lies ahead. We hope you are too.
