Marco Arment was Tumbrl’s first employee. But how did he hook up with David Karp so early on?
Over the weekend, Arment found the 2-page resume he submitted for a position at Davidville, Karp’s company which morphed into $1.1 billion Tumblr.
He shared it on his blog. “I’m amused by how much it foreshadowed the next parts of my career,” Arment writes.
- Arment graduated in 2004 with a B.S. in Computer Science from Allegheny College
- He had a lot of experience with C, PHP, XML, XSLT, XPath, XHTML, HTML, and CSS., and was familiar with C++, Java, C#, VB and Objective-C.
- Previous experience included building his own website, Marco.org, and working as a software engineer for Vivisimo, Inc.
- His interests aligned well with Tumblr. Arment was interested in photography, publishing and graphic design.
