The First 10 Apple Employees: Where Are They Now?

More

Apple, unlike any other company in the world, has its identity tied to one individual: Steve Jobs.

And without question, Jobs is the driving force that turned Apple into the world's most valuable tech company.

But, Jobs didn't do it alone.

We decided to take a look at the first ten employees at Apple, and see what they did and where they are today.

Apple's first CEO Michael Scott gave us a bunch of color on the early days, and Steve Wozniak helped with a list of early employees, though it was based on his memory. We got our full list from another early employee. (We don't think this list has been produced anywhere else.)

The Apple employee numbers aren't the order each person joined the company. When Scott came to Apple he had to give out numbers to each employee to make life easier for payroll.
