Got Sisu?

Posted by: Rob Hof on September 5, 2006

The social gaming site Bunchball just got venture funding, so it’s hiring—as long as you have sisu. I had to follow the company’s link to the Wikipedia entry to figure out what it means (assuming this entry is correct): It’s a Finnish word meaning “strength of will, determination, perseverance, and acting rationally in the face of adversity.” Just the quality needed to join a Web 2.0 company in today’s crowded market. Besides, as Bunchball adds, “We’re venture funded so we can even pay you.” Oh, OK, good.
