I received notice of a very… different type of recruiting video that I felt compelled to share, after viewing it. At first glance, I was not sure if it was created for a real company or just as a gag. I looked up the website associated with the video and found this:
SpareFoot is the world’s largest marketplace for self-storage. We’re having a blast building our business, and we’re looking for other smart folks who get things done. We believe in test-driven design, constantly rethinking, and moving fast. Some might even say we’re a “lean” startup. SpareFoot is backed by Silverton Partners and Floodgate.
I was still skeptical until I found some info about them on Bloomberg. Okay, enough of that.
I liked this video for a few reasons:
- I thought it was genuinely funny. It reminded me of “The Office” but, with more sight gags and slapstick.
- It gave the company a personality, which I thought was a good trick. I mean, what is more bland than a storage unit?
- It sparked my curiosity enough for me to investigate whether or not it was connected to a real company (as I mentioned earlier).
Curious to what you think of it. Let me know?
