Update on Julie Horvath's Departure — from Github (github.com)

over 5 years ago from Anthony Dines, Senior Interaction Designer @ Google

    I can't speak for Github, but a few shops I've been at in my career have taken that long (or even longer) to find a good fit. With that role, it's increasingly less about hiring the classic HR position than it is about finding a candidate that fits the companies culture. Seems to always be a difficult thing to find, especially as companies get further and further away from typical corporate cultures.

      I was hoping for a response like this. It sounded strange to me at first, thanks for shedding some light on that.

      Unfortunately, it sounds like they had a pretty toxic culture over there. Maybe finding HR that fits that mold isn't the best idea for some companies.
