At a recent employee party at ResumeRobin.com, a tech company in Irvine, California, employees chowed down on black russian caviar. The delicacy, which runs at $70 to $100 per ounce, was provided free of charge to all guests, served on small ciabatta bread sandwiches whisked around by waiters in white coats and festive black ties. The event took place at a posh sea-side Newport Beach country club, about 10 minutes from the company’s offices in Irvine, CA. Total bill for just the caviar alone: $156,000.
ResumeRobin.com, the company hosting the party, was founded just a few years earlier and hit $18 million in annual revenue last year. It provides resume distribution services. A user uploads a resume, which is parsed and distributed through a network of more than 5,000 websites, job boards and recruiters.
While Southern California usually plays second fiddle to Silicon Valley, a string of recent acquisitions has elevated the region’s status. Just last month, Facebook acquired Irvine’s Oculus VR for $2 billion, and Disney snapped up LA’s Maker Studios for a reported $500 million.
