English Graduate Lands a 250k programming job with Airbnb

…after rejecting an offer from Google

He had rejected many offers earlier, including one from Google. http://www.businessinsider.sg/silicon-valley-engineer-negotiated-a-starting-salary-from-120k-to-250k-in-just-a-few-weeks-2016-4/?r=US&IR=T#.VxzQknF97nA
