Kevin Rose sits down with Tom Conrad, CTO of Pandora, to discuss Pandora's success, his days spent as an engineer at Apple, why Thanksgiving is huge for Pandora and more!
Pandora CTO Tom Conrad shares his inspiration for reinventing the radio. He reveals how a jailbroken iPhone played a key part in Pandora's success, and explains why Thanksgiving is the biggest day of the year for the service. He also tells the crazy backstory behind Web 1.0 flameout Pets.com, what it was like to be an engineer during the "dark years" at Apple, and how he made a killing in high school selling the Apple IIGS.
Tom Conrad's advice for finding your dream job:
"The happiest I've ever been, the most gratification I've ever gotten from a job, are always instances where two things are true: I'm working with people that I love, and I'm solving a problem that I'm personally passionate about."
