I’m not quite overloaded yet, but I’m getting to the point where I have too many ways that people can communicate with me. Everything important flows through e-mail, but with notifications from LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, and many more, it’s a lot to manage. I haven’t bitten the bullet and joined Plaxo yet, but it looks like a pretty cool way to manage contacts and centralize all of my online social accounts. Not only can you link accounts from all over and access them all through Plaxo Pulse, but you can also integrate all of this information with your address book and calendar. It’s a pretty cool implementation of technology, which is why Plaxo might be a startup that you want to consider working for. Even if you don’t consider working for Plaxo, you may want to consider signing up to use their (free) product to manage your contacts for networking purposes.
Plaxo is based out of Mountainview, CA and they’ve already reached the startup pinnacle of being bought out – they were acquired by Comcast for $150 million. They still seem to be acting independently though, and they’re currently looking to add to their team. Plaxo’s Jobs page shows a number of opportunities, and a couple of them look perfect for entry level candidates. Both of them require strong technical skills, but only one is a software development position (Web Engineer). The other job opportunity is Data Analyst, which looks absolutely fascinating, as the focus of the job is “analyzing web site and application data to advance our understanding of the behavior of visitors and customers on Plaxo’s web sites and how to optimize site design, flows, and content.” If either of these jobs sounds interesting to you, you can send your cover letter and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
