Good news for Eldest work

Forbes likes them. Seattle Times likes them :-)
Location: Bellevue
Total funding raised: $90 million
Number of employees: 67
Although the company arguably falls into the “larger” startup category after raising a huge $73 million round announced in November, the buy-sell Craigslist competitor has remained nearly silent about its plans until 2015.
Founders Nick Huzar and Arean van Veelen broke that silence in the fall to talk about the massive plans for OfferUp. The biggest goal? Create something so great that no one has to use Craigslist again to buy or sell stuff.
OfferUp is hyperlocal, hypermobile friendly and growing like crazy. The startup said $2.9 billion of transactions were made on the site between January and November.

WOW!!!! I'd say eldest made a great choice. I see him in the crowd there. And it could be me, but the employees look very happy! That's always a good thing.
