ZipRecruiter Adds Badasses to Board of Directors

It’s The Shred for November 13, 2018, brought to you by Judge.com. Guys, blockchain is all the rage right now. And if you’re like most of us, the whole thing is confusing, right? Don’t worry. Chad and I have been working with Judge to give you the foremost insight into what blockchain is and what it means to recruiting. And we’ve made it easy for you. Just go to bitly.com/judgeblockchain to download this free resource. That’s bitly.com/judgeblockchain. Or you can hit up chadcheese.com today. Let’s go to the news: We talk a lot about ZipRecruiter, and for good reason. They raise a lot of money. They sponsor the world’s most popular podcast. They’re really serious about AI. And now they’ve added some top notch names to their board of directors. Check it: Blake Irving, former CEO of GoDaddy, domain name registrar, who saw the company go public is on board. Cipora Herman is also here. she may be best known for leading Facebook’s IPO as the company’s vice president of finance and treasurer. She was also CFO of football’s San Francisco 49’ers. Emilie Choi joins too. She was LinkedIn’s vice president of corporate development and was there most notably for the $1.5 billion purchase of Lynda.com. She sits on the board of Naspers, a tech investor, and is vice president of corporate and business development at Coinbase, a cryptocurrency platform that just hit an $8 billion valuation after a $300 million raise. If you’re looking for a common thread here, aside from each new board members being undeniably influential and smart, they all have some level of core competency going public and/or raising significant amounts of money. Also, folks like this who join boards like ZipRecruiter’s do so because there’s the potential for significant upside. Big moves, big money, and big brains. Would anyone be surprised to see ZipRecruiter file for an IPO in 2019? Me neither. Be sure to tune into the weekly show for deeper opinion on news you hear on The Shred. Once again, thanks to our sponsor Judge.com.
