Early employees interview series continues with Eva Ho, one of the original execs at Applied Semantics – the company Google acquired to help power AdSense.

“We were courted by a few folks, but once Google was in play, all went very quickly and smoothly. I remember coming in to work one day and Sergey was in our kitchen, hanging out by himself. I walked over and we struck up a conversation. I remembered how nice and humble he was — and thinking to myself how cool it would be to work for/with him. It all went so quickly that I didn’t have much time to process any of it.”
