This was me in 2015 ☠️. A startup I had joined as “founding employee” after we raised a $500k seed round from a prototype was shut down six months later and we were looking for new roles. I secured an interview with Codecademy through a referral from one of the startup founders (also GIPHY but I wasn’t interested for some reason. Since then they sold to Facebook 🤦)
On the phone with Codecademy…
