The engines were running at full steam here at Zillow in 2010, giving us a reason to celebrate big. On the heels of December’s record-traffic month of 13+ million unique users, we carried on two important Zillow traditions.
The annual holiday party
Bolstering the Zillow spirit of previous years, we’ve dismantled the conventional holiday affair, stripped ourselves of snowflake sweaters and dusty tuxedos, and slipped into grass skirts, coconut shells, and Hawaiian shirts and threw a Zillow luau at Hula Hula in downtown Seattle. Knocking back Mai-Tai’s and devouring roasted pig and a spectrum of sushi — including the ultra-delicatessen: spam sashimi — we watched traditional Hawaiian dancing, and boldly competed in a Hula “dance off” to win a fresh lei and other themed goodies. We finished the night with raucous karaoke, which produced many memorable stories (and photos).
The annual ski trip
We inaugurated 2011 with a Zillow ski trip – It’s not every day that your boss encourages you to play hooky and hit the slopes. About half of our employees hopped on our chartered buses and headed for Crystal Mountain to ski, eat and imbibe together (while the other half chose to stay home and relax). There were a ton of smiles and laughs, and one minor injury (but he’s OK!).
How about you? Are you looking to blaze some new trails AND build new memories with some terrific people? Zillow has lots of job openings — so please come and see if there is a fit for you.
