This Is What Google Co-Founder Sergey Brin’s Resume Looked Like In 1996
Google co-founder Sergey Brin may be one of the biggest names in today’s tech industry, but that wasn’t always the case. In fact, like many of us, his resume looked fairly plain and basic back in the early 1990s.
This old version of Brin’s resume, which was last updated in 1996, is making the rounds on Hacker News today.
The resume details some of Brin’s earliest projects, including one titled “Movie Ratings” that sounds a lot like the recommendation engine built into today’s entertainment apps such as Netflix.According to Brin’s description, you would rate the movies you’ve seen, and then the system would find other users with similar tastes that could suggest other films for you to watch.

Brin’s career at Google more than delivered on that objective. Brin, who co-founded Google with Larry Page and currently leads the company’s Special Projects division, is estimated to be worth $31.8 billion.
