You can pick up all kinds of things at Costco! We’re not sure world-class developers are among them, though.

Bobby Johnson, a former engineering director at Facebook, shared a photo he snapped in the parking lot of a Costco in Mountain View.

The car advertised a job for a developer at a “Pinterest killer startup.”

The Georgia licence plates and 678 area code suggest that the car, a Toyota, belongs to someone who just moved to California from the Atlanta area. (If you’re reading this, Atlanta, drop us a line.)

It’s yet another sign of the manic job market in the heartland of tech and the continual draw Silicon Valley has for people with ideas they want to build.
