Meet 15 Of The First WhatsApp Employees - Many Of Them Are Probably Set For Life
When WhatsApp was acquired a few days ago for $19 billion, it had a fairly small team.
55 people work for WhatsApp; 32 of them are engineers. The rest mostly handle customer support.
We rounded up some of the earliest WhatsApp's employees on LinkedIn. These people are responsible for creating the fastest growing social network ever. 450 million people use WhatsApp every month.
Many of the early employees were former Yahooers, just like WhatsApp co-founders Jan Koum and Brian Acton.
Which employees did we miss? Leave the names in the comments.
