  7. Poop Shoes (you had to be there)
  8. Free stuff -chapstick, gum, sunglasses, the list goes on

LA Uncubed

Of course there were also tons of amazing companies looking for talented people. It was at its essence a job fair.

Ethan Czahor, VP of Engineering for The Honest Company, was there looking for engineers, like many other CTOs. He had a successful afternoon and managed to meet one good Ruby on Rails developer. “To hire someone who is an LA native is almost impossible.” Ethan’s had to recruit from as far as Washington and Texas, and has tried using over 30 recruiters.

This event gave those sought after developers a great chance to check out their options in a fun setting. Come back soon, Wakefield!
