Meet the 15-Year Zappos Employee Whose Title Is “No Title”
When Fred Mossler joined Zappos in 1999, it was a risky choice. He had held a stable job at Nordstrom for eight years, and Zappos was just a struggling startup.
Things worked out pretty well, though. Zappos’s sales are now more than $1 billion per year, it has about 4,000 employees, and it was acquired by Amazon in 2009 for a reported $1.2 billion.
Mossler joined us at our SXSW Startup Celebration sponsored by .CO and CEA to talk about his lack of a title, and how Taco Bell influenced Zappos strategy. Here’s the video.
