[jobs] Google recon II: into the 'plex! [Jun. 9th, 2014|01:38 pm]
[Tags|, ]
[Current Location |Mountain View, CA]


Turns out my Facebook friend list is full of lurking tech-industry workers. A friend who I know via the Berkeley programming contest got in touch with me and invited me for lunch and a tour of the GooglePlex today.

First impressions: Goddamn, everyone is so young! It's like a college campus. Only more crowded! It is a hive of open-plan offices heavily populated with things like: (free) cafes and cafeterias, nap pods, gyms, volleyball courts, experimental aircraft (there is a spaceship 1 prototype hanging in one of the buildings), ball pits, pool tables, etc.

I'm happy that I'm doing reasonably well with jet lag, having managed to immediately adopt a local sleep schedule. Still a bit tired, though, which will be a small handicap in tomorrow's "ruthless grilling."

Yeah, your harlequin patchwork shoes would have been great. I'm sure green will be almost as great. Looking forward to hearing the debrief. GOOD LUCK!
