Yeah I agree, it makes sense and Im not saying its wrong either. In the atmosphere of move fast and break things its often okay to turn out bad code and fix it later once you get your hockey stick of momentum (which in some cases is perfectly acceptable). Hiring truly senior people might slow that down because they know better and want more polish or thoughtfulness put onto a product. I can see it both ways. Im not sure if Ive ever encountered a hiring manager that expect much out of a recent college grad, especially if its an undergrad. But they can learn fast and are usually eager, which is good for a startup where positivity and attitude are needed to keep moving forward.
