Steve Huffman is a co-founder of Hipmunk, which aims to take the agony out of travel search. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the site, you will fall in love with it with your first search. We used it to plan our trip!
Among walking into their office, we immediately saw what we now know are staples within the startup community: a ping pong table, a pool table, and a open space for work and collaboration. Steve showed us around, gave us a lot of insight to Hipmunk, startups, and fun in San Fransisco.
Hipmunk was a little different from other startups we have seen. Many startups we toured are loaded with engineers, but Hipmunk was evenly distributed between business oriented personnel and engineers. When touring Zynga, we saw a few hundred engineers and designers. At Weebly, they were very focused around engineers as well. Hipmunk was different, but the startup culture and set up were the same.
We are very appreciative of Steve and his crew for letting us drop by.
