Slide is the hottest company in tech. Slide consists of strictly A-list talent in business and engineering. Slide has the highest ratio of users to employees of any tech company in the world (over 170 million users, approx. 80 employees). Given the axiomatic formula for job kick-assness: (fun of workplace) x (fun of product) x (valuation of company), working at Slide is the most kick-ass job in the universe.

Advice to Management
Keep doing what you're doing: recognizing and rewarding talent and hard work.

Interviewer was very nice, but did not expect them to ask questions like this for a junior front-end web developer position.

Although the company provides image hosting, personalization tools, and social networking opportunities through Slide.com, the company's popularity stems from users of third party sites such as MySpace, Facebook, and Bebo, who use Slide applications to insert slide shows, pictures, or video clips...
