+HomeAway is listed as the #22 gorgeous office. (We're no longer a statup, though...)
It is totally acceptable to judge a company by its insanely beautiful office.

HandsOn Tech should expand to Austin and other major Texas cities. I would gladly sign up when it does.
 
If you’re passionate about technology and helping nonprofits fight poverty, apply by August 31 to be part of the HandsOn Tech program, an initiative that helps nonprofits take advantage of technology to further their causes and strengthen their communities.

HandsOn Tech pairs U.S. nonprofits with AmeriCorps VISTA members and skilled volunteers (including many Googlers), who deliver training to poverty-focused nonprofits and work one-on-one with organizations to create individualized, comprehensive tech plans to help them achieve their social missions more efficiently and effectively. Learn more about the program on our blog: http://g.co/rxy8 and apply to participate: http://goo.gl/OcS7Zq

Story
Introduction
I am a full-time Product SEM Analyst at HomeAway and a freelance Web Developer/Designer. (Outside of my full-time search marketing work, I devote much of my free time to web development & design.) 

I have spent several years studying how search engine robots work; I am now increasingly interested in how users interact with technology and designing/optimizing experiences based on user research & testing.
