[Silicon Valley start-up] ThoughtSpot is offering a $20,000 bounty to any employee or "friend of the company" who tips the startup off to a new hire.
That's right. You don't even have to work there to cash in on the bonus benefit - you just have to know someone who does.
Think of it a black market for recruiting.Which the very next line in the story contradicts;
"We want the best of the best," said CEO Ajeet Singh. "We thought $20,000 was an interesting enough number that a lot of people might actually refer people to us."Because supply curves are upward sloping. Just a matter of how steep. Which is what capital faces in the 21st century...as it did in all the centuries preceeding.
