Chad at PayPal

Chad intially worked in PayPal before creating Youtube with fellow collegues.PayPal at that time was dedicated to enable PDA users to send money among themselves. Juat as he was about to graduate, he heard of then-new company . Hurley sent his resume and received a job interview. After flying to California, he was asked to design a logo to show his skills. The result is the current logo of PayPal that now dedicates to securing all kinds of online transactions.

Also, it was during his days at PayPal that he met Steve Chen and Jawed Karim, two PayPal engineers with whom he talked about several ideas for businesses. In 2002, when eBay bought PayPal for $1.54 billion, Hurley received a bonus which he used to finance their future venture. Another link that helped their future venture was their connection to Roelof Botha, the South African former PayPal CFO.
