  Here's	
  why:	
  Peanut	
  Labs	
  is	
  the	
  #1	
  survey-­‐based	
  mone>za>on	
  company	
  in	
  the	
  Social	
  &	
  Online	
  gaming	
  space.	
  With	
  over	
  1200	
  employees	
  and	
  37	
  global	
  offices	
  from	
  
San	
  Francisco	
  to	
  London,	
  the	
  company	
  is	
  a	
  clear	
  leader	
  in	
  sampling	
  and	
  survey	
  research.	
  Partners	
  and	
  clients	
  within	
  social	
  media	
  and	
  gaming	
  include	
  Facebook,	
  Electronic	
  
Arts,	
  Nexon,	
  Rockyou,	
  Playdom	
  and	
  others.	
  	
  
The	
  Team
We	
  are	
  establishing	
  a	
  new	
  office	
  in	
  Karachi	
  and	
  you	
  will	
  be	
  part	
  of	
  an	
  independent	
  group	
  focused	
  on	
  product	
  and	
  technology	
  development.	
  We	
  work	
  hard	
  and	
  play	
  harder.	
  
Some	
  of	
  our	
  many	
  perks	
  in	
  San	
  Francisco	
  include	
  monthly	
  par>es,	
  ping	
  pong	
  table,	
  giant	
  TVs,	
  PS3,	
  mini-­‐golf	
  and	
  a	
  hammock	
  to	
  take	
  a	
  nap	
  in	
  during	
  the	
  aVernoon	
  (yes,	
  you	
  
read	
  that	
  right).	
  And	
  co-­‐workers	
  that	
  are	
  friendly,	
  easy-­‐going	
  and

  We	
  hope	
  to	
  replicate	
  the	
  same	
  office	
  environment	
  in	
  Karachi	
  over	
  the	
  next	
  few	
  months.
