Amazon Job Posting Before It Launched

Just a little less than 20 years ago, August 1994. The job listing was on a an old Usenet posting. The company then called (pre-launch) Abracadabra. Notice the job includes "meaningful equity position".

Out of curiosity, I just asked Jeff Tucker, when Mises Institute launched their site. Jeff tells me that it was 1995, right around the same time as Amazon.

  1. Robert: is this legit? I mean, I'm pretty sure that Google didn't even exist in 1994, nevermind specifically Google Groups.

  2. The ad was just posted at Google Groups. Bezos originally posted it at as a Usenet post.
