The Scoop: Open bar, open bar, appetizers… Oh! And did we mention OPEN BAR!
Vegas Baby: Can you code at a bar? If yes, then you can code at Zappos!
We will be having 2 coding challenges – 30 minutes each – 25 people max in each challenge. You can only do one of the challenges. If you need headphones, bring ‘em. Oh, and a laptop - that’s kinda important! 1st coding challenge at 6:30pm 2nd coding challenge at 7:30pm
The coding challenge is the first screening step in our interview process for hiring software engineers at Zappos. The person who gets the correct answer first from each round will be fast-tracked to VEGAS BABY! Yep, the second step in our screening process is an in-person interview in Las Vegas at our offices. And as always when we fly folks in to spend the night in Vegas, tour our offices, and interview - expenses are on us! Sorry, any gambling is on you. ;)
You don’t have to do a coding challenge or be a software engineer to hang with us!! We love all you tech peeps indiscriminately. Come on down and have a drink already! And our CEO, Tony Hsieh, will be at the event! If you participate in the challenge and would like one, he’s happy to sign a copy of his book, “Delivering Happiness” for you.
The members of the ultra-fun rock band Rabbit! stopped by Zappos HQ to talk about their experience writing and recording the song “Possibility” on the Delivering Happiness bus. They even took a minute to play their hit “Magic” in a special acoustic performance. Rabbit! focuses on playing happy, nostalgic music that is suitable for all ages. You'll be able to hear Rabbit! as the Zappos.com hold music in the near future. Rock out to Rabbit! on their MySpace page and check out the video of their visit above.
LPGA Tour Pro Natalie Gulbis recently visited Zappos HQ to challenge us at a putting contest and sit down for an exclusive interview with Zappos.com CEO Tony Hsieh (Click HERE to watch Natalie's interview with Tony). Natalie is not only a winning LPGA Professional, she is also a beautiful model, successful businesswoman, marketing spokesperson and philanthropist. You may also remember her from the Celebrity Apprentice where she raised money for the Boys and Girls Club. Natalie's charm, style and competitive golf career make her one of the most popular players on the LPGA Tour.
Yesterday was a special day for the Zappos Family as well as the City of Las Vegas. Moments like this happen once in a lifetime, and it was one we won't soon forget. It has always been an honor to be a member of the Zappos Family, but this takes it to a whole new level. Thanks to Tony, Andrew Donner, Michael Cornthwaite, Mayor Goodman and everyone else involved who helped make this day nothing short of an extraordinary event in the lives of the Zappos Family.
Perhaps your ipGlove (see the video HERE) isn’t cutting it as temperatures are dropping across the country.

The Zappos Family had its Q4 All Hands Meeting yesterday and it was one for the ages. Galen Hardy gave a heartfelt speech to the audience about his recovery and we welcomed Robert Lang, professional origami artist, as our guest speaker. Lang explained the power of broadening your talents to help in sectors you've never considered. He explained how he has applied origami to helping space telescopes launch into space. This meeting was very special to the Zappos Family as we said farewell to our CFO, Alfred Lin. Alfred is heading back to the bay to work in venture capitalism, a dream he has wanted to pursue for years. The dance number will go down as a "Most Memorable Moment" from 2010 for sure. If you weren't able to watch the Zappos Family All Hands Meeting yesterday, we've got you covered. Check out the video below of yesterday's meeting.
