In news that no one really cares about unless you were there… yesterday marked the 15th anniversary of the FairMarket IPO. Some of the best folks I’ve worked with and where I learned many awesome (and some not so awesome but valuable) life lessons.
I put in 5.5 years there before the eventual acquisition by eBay and move to California. I worked on the FairMarket platform for another 4.25 years at eBay and got the opportunity to take on a couple other platforms and brought my own particular type of customer-centric brand of Product Management to the table.
Here’s a video about FairMarket that was released post-IPO.
