CEO Friday: Damn I love working here
That might sound obvious. I was employee number one, and I’ve been personally involved in hiring everybody else in the company. So I less than anyone should be surprised by what this team can do. But when Tom builds a remote-controlled, webcam/microphone/speaker equipped, four-wheeled robot just so Tony can attend a Thanksgiving party — I mean, who can’t be surprised by that level of awesome? And then for Tony to casually drive this silly robot into a roadmap meeting to discuss some fundamentally radical mobile ideas, not the least of which is how to maximize the value of our totally custom cross-platform mobile layer — my mind is blown.
I’m not saying every day feels like living in some parallel universe where Sneakers meets Ocean’s Eleven. But some do, and I can’t help but think “Damn! I love working here.”
PS: Did I mention we’re hiring? Programmers, salespeople, and desperately looking for a designer. Know any? Send them our way, please!
