A lot of requirements I have seen say "Must fit in our fast-paced environment" , "Must be aggressive and ready to hit the ground running". I love this post because the industry has forgotten that they are hiring human beings. Very hire is different. I personally am willing to learn and grow. I guess my previous boss never cared and was quick to let me go.

 

Those are warning signs even for experienced developers. But in fairness, they often aren't written by the team, but by some idiot in HR that's trying to make the company sound impressive.

I've worked in "fast paced" companies before and we've had new hires. You can still be a good mentor, but there is an expectation that the new people are extremely self-motivated, and will be expected to basically work overtime catching up. There's nothing wrong with this if the people know what they are getting into.
