My b, new to the platform so I haven't been seeing what's come through already.ย 

To be fair though... the platform looks like Reddit and a key element of Reddit is reposts to farm karma

Don't worry about it. War Room will figure it out over time but there is just going to be overlap for now.

I love it - no matter what someoneโ€™s got to comment. One side is โ€œuse the search and find the old threadโ€ then the other side is โ€œwhy did you comment/revive such an old thread?!โ€ poor new people.ย

I would like to comment and ask have you seen their requirements for the entry level position? Who has business dev. experience for 11 years and is looking for an entry level position? I have friends that work/worked here and they hated it. IMO they aren't going to get people who meet their criteria unless they are paying $300k base for entry level.

While I agree, it was one of the worst interview experiences of my life.ย 

I'm not sure if it was startup growing pains or what but I definitely give side eye everytime I see them in the news.

You should have taken the hiring manager's position then! They aren't fit for that role.

Seems like a lame answer, but Zoom. Rumors are that they are going to enter into the Cloud Call Center solution space to compete directly with Twilio, Genesys, Five9, Ringcentral, etc. by buying a smaller competitor

I know at lot of people there. It's not a great as outsiders think it is. Lots of chaos internally, territory changes, etc...

Zoom is so easy to beat rn because so many businesses made knee-jerk reactions to go with the one name they knew and have had a poor experience. Not that it's all Zoom's fault (save the security snafu), but I personally wouldn't work for them anytime in the near future. Their competitors mostly had the luxury of watching things play out and fine tuning their own products over the past 12 months- all the benefit with very few of the same hurdles.ย

Yeah, I bet, I had some early stage interviews with them right before Covid got serious. I'm very happy where I am now, but definitely wonder sometimes...

I almost worry that with Amazon it's kind of like Salesforce at this point, tons of sales people, small territories, cannibalization etc. Plus they are a pretty flat org through and through so promotions sound few and far b/t. Would definately be alluring later in my career though

Fraud went waaaay up in the past year as more stuff moved online. Ecommerce platforms for the most part don't even bother to address fraud as part of the capabilities. Good leadership helps and they've got it.

Something in the Crypto space. A ton of potential and room for growth.

Yeah I can see that for sure. What do you think a sales role would be in a company like that? I'm guessing as more financial services pop up that will be where some B2B selling can happen. It's definitely a ripe field for some companies to get some funding and explode.

I forgot the name of the biggest one. But there are BTC custodial services for rich clients. They are looking for sales people.

What kind of sales are they doing?

Selling the beta of wireless 5G in rural Canada. Selling something people desperately want and currently can't get. I'm guessing each sales cycle is about 12 seconds.ย 

My bad I should have said StarLink instead of SpaceX, all part of the Elon Musk umbrella.ย

I don't exactly know what I would sell or what they would sell, but it would be pretty sick to work at Nat Geo. Maybe I will just go buy a camera and become an underwater shark photographer. ha
