About Twitter’s new acquisition
San Francisco-based startup Laskie, which is designed to find suitable jobs for users, plans to make fundamental changes in the hiring process. The startup was founded in 2021 by Chris Buck, who previously sold another startup called Interviewed to the job search website Indeed.
Although Laskie states on its website that their service is no longer available, on LinkedIn it bills itself as “the most powerful platform for recruiting tech talent.” Through the Internet Archive, Gizmodo managed to obtain Laskie’s About Me page, which reads in part:
“We believe that finding an incredible remote job shouldn’t be so challenging. From engineers to designers to marketers, we’ve helped everyone land their dream role.”
Twitter’s acquisition of a platform that focuses on telecommuting comes after Elon Musk recently called telecommuting a silly and morally wrong idea. Twitter’s new CEO, Linda Yacarino (formerly NBCUniversal’s head of advertising), has just been announced and will soon take over the helm of the social network.
