Here's How to Make Sure They Are. 1 / 1 Back to Gallery Companies love to think that that outside hire they've just scored is the silver bullet that will solve their problems.

Becky Peterson, provided by Published 7:11 pm, Monday, June 25, 2018 More than 650 Salesforce employees reportedly sent a letter to CEO Marc Benioff criticizing the company's work with the U.S. Customers and Border Protection agency. The letter said the company's values were imperiled by working with the border agency, at a time when parents and children of migrants illegally crossing the border are being separated. A Salesforce representative said the company was not working with the agency with regards to "separation of families at the border."

When ClassPass was looking to open a third office outside of its New York and San Francisco locations, it decided on Missoula, Montana — a location that doesn’t usually top the lists of the best cities for tech startups. “We wanted to choose a place where big tech companies weren’t already in. No Googles, no Facebooks, no Microsofts, no Amazons,” CEO Fritz Lanman said. He added that the company also wanted to choose a city that afforded opportunities for its employees to live an active lifestyle — a must-have for a fitness startup. ClassPass didn’t have to go all the way to Montana to avoid being in the same place as Google, Facebook, and Microsoft. But the options aren’t as plentiful as they used to be — tech giants are starting to slow their pace of growth in the Bay Area as they look for other cities to add jobs. “Last year in the U.S. we grew faster outside the Bay Area than in the Bay Area,” Google CEO Sundar … [Read more...] about How startups are changing their approach to distributed teams as big tech looks outside the Valley

In early 2014, Srikanth Thirumalai met with Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. Thirumalai, a computer scientist who’d left IBM in 2005 to head Amazon’s recommendations team, had come to propose a sweeping new plan for incorporating the latest advances in artificial intelligence into his division. He arrived armed with a “six-pager.” Bezos had long ago decreed that products and services proposed to him must be limited to that length, and include a speculative press release describing the finished product, service, or initiative. Now Bezos was leaning on his deputies to transform the company into an AI powerhouse. Amazon’s product recommendations had been infused with AI since the company’s very early days, as had areas as disparate as its shipping schedules and the robots zipping around its warehouses. But in recent years, there has been a revolution in the field; machine learning has become much more effective, especially in a supercharged form known as deep … [Read more...] about How Amazon Rebuilt Itself Around Artificial Intelligence
