Hi! I'm Thomas, a member of the group. I thought you guys might find these small tech talks and startup dinners interesting. This month, five companies, Dropbox, Quora, Causes, Meraki, and Stitcher (company details below) are each having private tech demos and dinners for Bay Area professionals.
1. If you’d like to be on the mailing list for future dinners, please don’t hesitate to hit reply- blank mails are fine- and I'll be sure to put you on the monthly mailing list.
2. If you’re interested in exploring engineering opportunities at these companies, and would like to meet the teams behind these brands, just hit reply, type the company’s name, and attach your resume. That's it. We’ll get back to you about your place at the dinner. It would be great if you could let me know by Sunday of this week.
