Two Ex-Googlers Are Launching A Machine-Learning Startup Called Humu

Google’s former Head of HR, Lazslo Bock and the company’s former Director of Engineering, Wayne Crosby are launching a startup that seems to be about work-life balance.

We didn’t see that coming. Laszlo Bock, who stepped down from his role as SVP of People Operations at Google in the middle of the last year, and Google Director of Engineering Wayne Crosby, are starting a company called “humu“, and they both announced their new venture on LinkedIn.

While there’s not much detailed information about the company yet, they are planning to use science, machine learning, HR and “a little bit of love” as they declare.

Bock’s LinkedIn post read:

We spend our lives looking for that special someone. We find them. Maybe we start a family. The most precious people on the planet for each of us. The people with whom we’ve chosen to spend our lives. The people to whom we dedicate our hearts and souls.

Then we spend almost 8 times as much of our precious hours at work. Even worse, for too many people, work is just a means to an end… That’s why Wayne Crosby and I have started humu. Our mission is to make work better everywhere through science, machine learning, and a little bit of love.

There’s no accuracy for when humu will officially launch, but there’s a job application button on the bottom of their official website.

Speaking of which, humuhumunukunukuapua’a is a reef triggerfish – a species native to Hawaii. Nice.
