Haseeb Qureshi is an Airbnb engineer who drew a lot of attention last month for his blog post that explained how he negotiated a starting pay package from $120,000 to $250,000 in a matter of a few weeks.Qureshi has an interesting background — he's a former professional poker player with an English degree.

Despite getting rejected by all 20 jobs he initially applied for, Qureshi worked his way up by learning how to code on his own, and ended up landing 8 job offers, including positions at Google, Uber, and Yelp.Earlier this month, Qureshi updated his blog post with tips on how to nail your interview and find your dream job.
