Ram Shriram Talks About How Google Gets Good People
Silicon Beat has an interview with Ram Shriram, the investor and current Google board member who guided founders Page and Brin through the companies early days. He basically created their hiring philosophy, in which a candidate is grilled for four hours to the point of exhaustion, a process which you might remember Russell Beattie dropped out of yesterday. The article explains his philosophy:
It’s all in the grooming. Shriram set out to made sure Page & Brin hired only the very best, or “A” people. He cited the well-known Silicon Valley tenet: Hire only A people, and they’ll hire other A people. If you hire the B person, they’ll hire C or D people.
