Welcome, Maz!Feb 26, 2007
A while back I posted a job opening at First Round Capital for our first Analyst. After posting, I was instantly deluged with resumes from many excellent candidates. And the resumes kept coming for weeks, most recently as the posting found it’s way to Doostang.
Our goal was to find a person that was smart, energetic, and with the entrepreneurial spirit that we like to bring to our firm, and we have done that with Mazen Araabi. Even though he wasn’t officially supposed to start until tomorrow, Maz has already jumped in to help us around a number of potential investments, all while trying to find a new apartment in San Francisco and getting his furniture moved up from LA.
When you meet Maz be sure to ask him about his experience at Intermix when MySpace was first starting up. Not many people get a "Woulda Coulda Shoulda" that early in their career
