Gotta Meet ‘Em All: Part 1

Pokemon Cards Part 1

Back in January, we kicked off our 5th annual college recruiting program.

Our Fresh 15 class hails from both near and far, each bringing a unique outlook to their new roles at Inflection.

Meet the Fresh 15 Crew

Recruiting Team

This year's college recruiting program, Fresh 15, is off to an exciting and nostalgic start. Our recruiting team has been traveling all over the country in search of the best and brightest talent to join our team. However, it wouldn't be considered a true 90s throwback unless they were wearing overalls and fanny packs while handing out Pokemon cards. To find the freshest new graduates, our recruiting team has to be pretty fresh themselves. That's why while they are out trying to get to know you, we are giving you the chance to learn more about them. More…

Introducing the Fresh 15 College Recruiting Program

Fresh 15 Recruiting Program

Back in 2010 we had a crazy idea. Just like the Internet and Nintendo 64, we were working to innovate the digital world, but we needed to add more individuality and originality to our team to help us achieve our bold ideas. We dreamed up a program where we brought on new college grads, put them in charge of challenging work, and shaped an environment that encouraged self-expression and nonconformity. The not-so-crazy part is that it worked! And year after year we have been blown away by the off the hook successes of our college grads. That’s why we’re here today - just a fast-growing technology company, standing in front of a soon-to-be graduate, asking you to join us. More…

Introducing Fantastic Fourteen

Fantastic 14

Inflection was my first job out of college, an unlikely place to work for someone who studied art theory and photography at a liberal arts school. Unlike many of my classmates, who were scrambling to investment and consulting firms, which they believed were stepping stones in the cobbled path of their future, I was open to possibilities. I didn’t want to define my identity by my vocation or workplace, but I wanted to come to work everyday with a sense of purpose in a place that demanded growth, challenge, and perseverance. More…

How to Mentor a New Hire at Inflection

New Hire

Everyone knows that "first day" feeling. It's the first day of high school, and you are so nervous that you can't stomach breakfast. On the first day of college, you scramble around your dorm room trying to figure out how to make breakfast without Mom & Dad. And now, it's the first day of work. No matter how many cups of coffee you drink, the nerves are still there. Starting anything new can be nerve-racking, but at Inflection we try our best to take care of those nerves as soon as new hires walk through the doors. More…

I’m Going Down to Lucky Town

Lucky 13

It's no coincidence that the fortune cookie was invented in San Francisco. Our hills may not house the rollicking, devilish leprechauns of Irish lore, but I'd venture to say that San Francisco is a city of good fortune*. Just last September, Bloomberg Weekly named San Francisco the Best City to Live in America in 2012 and it's not difficult to see why. We boast some of the best restaurants, museums, views, cafes, and businesses in America. We know we have it pretty good here at Inflection, and we're only trying to make it better--13 people better, in fact. Ready or not, 13 college seniors are about to get real lucky (not THAT lucky).
