The first Dropbox employee, Aston Motes, recently left to found his own stealth start-up. When I contacted him to ask about Dropbox and why he left, Motes eagerly reminisced about Dropbox’s fall kickball-league victory, its karaoke nights and Whiskey Fridays. He also went on at length about how Dropbox engineers think about delighting users, rather than just executing implementations. It was clear the Kool-Aid hasn’t worn off yet!
