TechCrunch has posted a TechCrunchTV video interview of David Sacks, the CEO of Yammer, talking about how he will spend their recent round of $25 million on engineering and expansions into Asia and Europe.
Asia and Europe. Based on the conversation around the hiring difficulties in Silicon Valley and the joke about speaking Chinese, I assume that Yammer plans to hire a load of cheap Chinese devs. Good luck with that!
TechCrunch uses the time wisely, by asking for better mobile clients and confirms their near reliance on the tool. I guess if you are a small disconnected shop like TechCrunch, Yammer makes a lot of sense. It’s a great, platform neutral way to communicate with your team no matter where you are and is less tedious than email. (More on that later)
Personally, I have my on feature requests for Yammer, but I rather build them into SnapWorkSocial, a much more enterprise worthy application.
