Nine years ago, Zillow Group’s chief business officer, Greg Schwartz, traveled from New York to Seattle to interview for a new job. The portal was still in its infancy. He landed at 10:30 p.m. in Seattle. Zillow co-founder, Rich Barton, insisted on immediately conducting the hiring interview in the lobby of Schwartz’s hotel for the next three hours. Schwartz valiantly stayed awake ’til 4 a.m. Eastern time and was competent enough to be hired.
