In 2016 I responded to a Craigslist posting for a videographer position to shoot video for a “foldable longboard.” After my interview over some Starbucks coffee, I realized I didn’t get the job. Instead, BoardUp’s CEO, Bin Lu, hired me as an Online Marketing Director contractor. BoardUp’s workplace motto could be summed up with “aim high and hit higher.” The company did the impossible in creating a sturdy foldable longboard and is continuing to develop new products.
