Desde o início, o LinkedIn tem sido uma rede global, com a metade dos nossos usuários provenientes dos Estados Unidos e a outra metade de outras partes do mundo. Nós tomamos várias medidas para melhor servir as necessidades dos nossos usuários ao redor do mundo, incluindo o lançamento do LinkedIn em inglês, francês, alemão e espanhol. Hoje, tenho o prazer de anunciar uma outra medida crítica para irmos em direção ao nosso objetivo de conectar os profissionais do mundo todo – O LinkedIn agora está disponível em português.
This is my first post on the LinkedIn Blog that I write less than a month since I started here as Vice President of People Operations. I became a member of LinkedIn the day the site launched on May 5, 2003, and I’m thrilled to be playing a role in helping build a truly great company.
The LinkedIn team has more than tripled in size in the last 12 months; we’ve hired over 200 talented individuals in every possible group within the company ranging from engineering to marketing. We’ve got the core of a world-class team, but we’re just getting started; as we continue to grow and expand, we’re continuing to seek the best and the brightest. And as we bring new people into the organization, we’re committed to give them the best professional experience of their lives.
