Newswire: Tubi TV “bashes” Hooli in Silicon Valley-inspired job ads
Tubi TV, a free VOD service, is headquartered in Silicon Valley, just like the fictional Hooli and Pied Piper empires on Silicon Valley. They’re also in need of engineers, just like Hooli and Pied Piper sometimes were (stay with us here). And from the union of that particular Venn diagram, an idea was born: to create Silicon Valley-inspired ads to lure engineers to work in the real Silicon Valley.
The three ads in rotation prove that the days when you could dazzle a stockbroker by solving the Rubik’s cube he keeps handy for some reason are long gone. To be competitive in the current job market, you need an expansive set of skills or, at the very least, a considerable knowledge of HBO dramedies. But it’s probably not all fun and games: You could unintentionally reveal undesirable employee traits by responding to a particular ad.
