If You Are Looking For Something More Entrepreneurial
Adam Lashinsky wrote a post this past week titled "Where Does Google Go Next" in which he outlined the exodus of many well known Google engineers and business execs. Here is the line that kind of sums it up for me.
But the Ooyala founders say what they lack in institutional backing
they make up for in speed and the ability to communicate with one
another by turning around in their chairs and talking. Google was like
that too, about eight years and 18,000 employees ago.
I can’t think of a company that I am more impressed with than Google, but they are coming to grips with the fact that "startup energy" can’t be faked. There’s nothing quite like going from five people to fifty or a hundred.
We have a couple dozen companies going from five to fifty and we are looking for great software engineers, killer bus dev talent, and experienced internet sales people. So if you are at Google (either here in NYC or in the Bay area) or any other large internet company and are looking for something more entrepreneurial send me an email or an @message on twitter and I’ll tell you what we’ve got. My email address is linked to on the lower left sidebar of this blog and here’s my twitter account.
