Our recruiter Sean sent out this email that made me LOL. If you are an engineer, or any awesome person who should work at tumblr, please be in touch.
I am writing this e-mail from the future.I wanted to thank everyone for their attendance to the sourcing party, which ran on Tuesday from 6-7:30pm on the 10th floor. I can’t believe we got so many people to show up and make it such a success.Prizes were given out (Amazon gift cards), BBQ was eaten, beer was drank, and Derek sang a karaoke rendition of “Sweet Child of Mine” because we got over 200 leads.So thank you.———-This will be very fun and it’s extremely important for everyone to show up- even if just for a little while- to go over your contacts and give us some potential recruiting leads (there will be options for if we can contact this person using your name or not). Referrals are the lifeblood of recruiting. You are smart engineers. We want to continue to populate this place with smart engineers who you want to spend time with. You hold the keys to that. It’s seriously important. And we do have prizes, bbq and beer.See you @ 6.

Congrats to all our brand partners who made the list!
I think it’s SO cool that advertisements on Tumblr get reblogged thousands and thousands of times across the network. Big ups to the advertisers who are rocking Tumblr and the awesome team of folks that help them make it happen.

Pretty Colors is a collaborative flow of pretty colors as selected by the Tumblr community.
It’s basically impossible to choose my most favorite Year In Review category, but this one is DEFINITELY in the top 5.
#1 prettiest color?
Matches Pantone’s color of the year almost perfectly.

Seriously funny stuff up in here.
that’s probably zeus in disguise
Almighty Zeus would never be a raccoon. That’s Hermes or Dionysos. Maybe Apollo if he was in a delusional hipster phase.
TUMBLR GETS DEEP
Introducing Tumblr’s 2013 Year in Review, celebrating the best of the Internet
We’ve analyzed millions of blogs, billions of posts, and zillions of notes in order to give you a taste of all the amazing stuff you may have missed on Tumblr this year.
Follow yearinreview.tumblr.com as we release new post categories daily through the end of December!
We fed all of this year’s blogs, posts, and topics into a magical robot unicorn machine, which processed them according to a number of factors, including total volume of posts and tags (original and reblogged), web traffic, and follower growth over a period of time.
The result is an infinitely rebloggable scroll of creativity, humor, humanity, fandom, and sharing. (And GIFs. Lots of GIFs!)
TL;DR: It’s the best!!! So much fun to explore!!! I LOVE YOU TUMBLR!!!
HUGE thanks to everyone at TumblrHQ who helped out with this. I am sure i am forgetting some folks but it’s been an awesome team effort:
Christine, Amanda, Annie, Ryan, Ben, Sean, Damien, Peter, Tag, Sarah, Leah, Katherine, Sarah, Pau, Chris, Patrick, Karen, Rebecca, Derek, David, and all our new friends at Yahoo!
