S5 Bonus: Josh Millet, Criteria Code Story

    • Entrepreneurship

Josh Millet's journey to tech was quite circuitous. He spent most of his 20's doing a PhD in French medieval history, with his plan being a professor in college. His specific time period was the era around Joan of Arc. Upon graduating, he realized that the job market for French medieval history professors wasn't super hot... and he ended up doing a startup with some of his friends from school - a small test prep company, which ended up being sold with 5 employees onboard.

He's married with 2 boys, living in Los Angeles. With two boys, he mentioned that there is a lot of referring... and he feels like an adjudicator and mediator most of the time. After getting involved in the hiring process at his prior company, he felt the pain of knowing when an interview was over early on. He thought, there has to be a way to use data and tech to make the process more efficient.

This is the creation story of Criteria.
