In a startup, an experienced self-starter will need:
- logins for all the online resources
- licenses for installed software, if any
- paths to download software, fonts, etc., if any
- style guides
- department procedures & workflow (might be a doc or in-person
- access to doc source
- access to application source
- introductions to their SMEs
At that point, I'd leave it up to them how they want to proceed, and be
available as necessary.
