Adzuna’s Stephen Pritchard sent us this infographic detailing some of the most influential first hires of many of the biggest names in the tech industry. Most of these people are not big names by any means except among industry insiders, but it’s important to understand what they were able to do that allowed them to profoundly affect their start-ups’s bottom-lines — as well as our lives.
While the founders may have the vision, the first hires help make that vision reality– or at least make something out of it. The first few hires of any start-up often find themselves not just the executors of the founders’ ideas, but shapers of the same.
