the only downside is gonna be the strike price on the options

i found this item recently on the official google blog. seems the whiz kids at google are expanding their office in atlanta. according to the post they have moved into new offices in midtown and are expanding and looking for sales people and engineers in atlanta.

just passing along, since i am neither a sales person or an engineer, i’m out, but if you are, good luck. i would love to work for google since i think they are about the most innovative thing going.

seriously. have you seen google spreadsheets?

(btw – this post was neither food-related nor exceptionally snarky or mean-spirited methinks. maybe i’m turning over a new leaf. stay tuned*)

    If I could figure out how to do charts in Google spreadsheets I would be golden.

    For what it’s worth, Seth, I’ve been participating as a commenter for well over a year. Prior to yesterday, I don’t recall posting anything negative toward a Metblogs contributor. Then again, prior to yesterday, I havn’t been so annoyed by the arrogance of a Metblogs contributor.

    I doubt I’m alone.

    ya’ know jim, i have thought about it and you are right. while i stand by my opinion in that post, i’ll admit my tone was over the top.

    so public mea culpa. sorry. i’ll take a deep breath and exercise a little more restraint before i post about something like that again.

    I wouldn’t forgo checking out Google career opportunities just because you’re not an engineer or a sales person. While I don’t know what jobs we’re hiring for in Atlanta at present, I’d invite you to keep an eye out at on occasion. Quite a diversity in the folks we look for and hire ;)

    Oh, and about Spreadsheets: I don’t work on that team, but — like our other product teams — I know they do care a lot about feedback, so if you haven’t written them with that and other suggestions, you might want to do that.
