Post OT:any good startup co. in Bay Area?

K, I'm looking to move into the Bay Area, I figure that there'd be more startup companies over there. I love working in startup companies (.com?). There's so much room for progression. Anybody work in one that's hiring? Please email... slickmnky@aol.com.

Seems like there are more RS's over there. More posts.

Thanks for your time.

I currently work at another startup. readyscript.com. Currently cust ser. rep. But I'm looking for a more technical position where I can grow. I do know HTML, C, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Fireworks, Pagemaker. I'm want to work at a place that will let me utilize my skills. I'd love to learn frontend and backend, and database. I'm not there yet. I'll put my resume on the web, or maybe send it to your respectable email addresses and perhaps you can forward it to appropriate persons.

Thanks guys.

You might want to try Electronic Arts in Redwood City. They are making a dot com division because of an alliance they made with AOL. I just started and I know they're looking for people bad. Signing bonuses and stock options baby! *Dang* 101 commute to *heck* though.

Someone here at EA has a Scoob (RS) and I haven't seen them on the board. I'll try to get them on.

Well, EA isn't really a startup. But of the game companies, they're currently the biggest, and pretty stable. That's hard to find in the video game industry. If you're interested in video game companies, check out 3DO too. Lots of people from EA have jumped ship and come here. Heck, 3DO's CEO started EA and played a big part in the start of Apple. Of all the game companies, 3DO has had the most growth over the last three years. I joined two years ago when they had just under 200 employees, now there are just over 500. The down side is that everyone and they're cousin are moving to the Bay Area and we're running out of room to breathe. Studio apartments for $1600 a month, Median housing price within a 100 mile radius is over $400k. That's last month's figures. They've undoubtedly risen since then. A lot of us here are looking to move away from this area. If only there were more game companies in Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Utah, or Arizona.

EA is not a start up but when they allied with AOL they made a whole new spin-off company that IS a startup. Except they don't have to worry about venture capital because they have EA's pockets. I've been in startup environs before and this is definitely it. Codemonkey: The environ is definitely different. Either you love it or you hate it. I'm not liking it too much because they're not serious enough. The "work 'em like dogs/slaves" rep of the gaming industry holds true here. 60+ hour weeks are the norm here right now. On the lighter side it's like college all over again. There's actually women here (pretty anomalous, not sure why), they just bought a fridge to make a kegarator in the break room, and there's been two beer busts in the last two months and there's another this weekend. If you don't mind your job being your life then this place is for you.

-Brian

P.S. Email or IM chaincat@yahoo.com for the recruiter's name and email address. I'm on AOL and Yahoo chat. (IMing names = Chaincat on both services)

Oh, and Craig's definitely right about the housing. Don't be fooled by SoCal's 'cheap' housing. My buddies and I are coughing up 3g a month for a 1340sq ft, three bedroom apartment in San Jose.

Any chance of Telecommuting from Massachusetts? Hehe, sounds like fun, 'cept there's crap for web startups here in the area.
