Business Insider surveyed CEOs and human resources chiefs from some of the enterprise technology industry's most valuable startups about what jobs they're looking to fill.  We also asked them what qualities they look for in a job candidate. Below is a list of the top startups that are hiring, as well as what their CEOs or HR bosses had to say about how to make yourself stand out as an applicant.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Finding a job during a public health and economic crisis is difficult, but the enterprise technology industry is among the best bets for job seekers as it's been more insulated to the effects of the downturn than consumer technologies. Business Insider surveyed the most valuable enterprise technology startups to find out which are hiring and what exactly they need – both in terms of open positions and the qualities they look for in job candidates. Job seekers should keep in mind that we surveyed startups based on valuation, not other important factors such as a financial performance or company culture, though we have noted when startups have faced challenges of which we're aware. Most information on company valuation and employee count via PitchBook.  Here's what CEOs and HR chiefs from 23 of the most valuable enterprise technology startups told us about what positions they need to fill and what qualities they look for in job candidates they hire:SEE ALSO: Meet the 54 most valuable enterprise tech startups, worth as much as $216 billion collectively UIPath Headquarters: New York, New York Year founded: 2012 Valuation: $10.2 billion Total raised: $1.2 billion as of July 2020 Employees: 3,000 as of July 2020 What it does: UIPath builds helps businesses automate common and routine tasks through a technology called robotic process automation (RPA). The startup is eyeing an IPO next year, as Business Insider recently reported. Open positions: UIPath is "actively hiring" for more than 130 open positions, including product support consultant, automaton consulting director, senior application developer, HR manager, enterprise sales leader, software engineer, and customer support manager. The company is also hiring for internships in sales and product marketing, including sales development representatives and university partnerships roles. What qualities do you look for in a job candidate? How does someone get a job at your company? "Our company's core values are to be humble, be bold, be immersed, and be fast," UIPath CEO Daniel Dines told Business Insider. "We look for candidates who embody those traits—specifically, individuals who are eager to listen and learn, challenge conventional ways of thinking, experiment, and use their imagination. Culture is incredibly important to us, and we make it a priority to ensure that the individuals we hire will be a good fit."  Automation Anywhere Headquarters: San Jose, California Year founded: 2003 Valuation: $6.8 billion Total raised: $840 million as of November 2019 Employees: 2,600 as of May 2020 What it does: Automation Anywhere is another RPA startup that helps companies automate repetitive tasks.

What qualities do you look for in a job candidate? How does someone get a job at your company? Here's what Chief Human Resources Officer Nancy Hauge told us: "During the pandemic, we are interviewing candidates primarily over Zoom, and are discovering new insights from these interviews, compared to interviews we had in the past conducted in person. Social distancing has in some ways created a greater intimacy because there is a lack of predictability. Interviewers are seeing the candidate wholly. For example, there may be a child interrupting because they need attention, or a dog that suddenly jumps on their lap. How does the candidate react to these distractions? There is so much more to be learned about a candidate over Zoom. Take the background screen. If they are using a background or filter for their Zoom interview, what is the candidate willing to disclose about themselves on a personal level? As an interviewer, you get to see how someone is marketing themselves by the created environment they invite their interviewer into. Is it a quiet room with a blank space or the chaos of a household? What has changed in evaluating candidates during this time is that interviewers and hiring managers need to be more consciously competent about getting to know people. We cannot rely on the routine ice breakers we had before, but I believe this adds to the quality of our hiring."

"While cognizant of the challenges brought by the current economic environment we believe that this will ultimately accelerate the cloud transition and so we are continuing to selectively hire great talent to join our teams," HashiCorp CEO Dave McJannet told Business Insider. What qualities do you look for in a job candidate? How does someone get a job at your company? "At HashiCorp, we believe an organization is driven by its people and culture," McJannet told Business Insider. "Broadly-speaking we think about two categories: skills and attributes. The unique challenge of startups is the pace of change — the job by definition changes and evolves as the company scales. As such we identify functional skills required to succeed in a particular role, but also focus on a set of role-specific 'attributes' that we've found best enable people to succeed as the company changes.  These include innate intellectual curiosity, humility, and the ability to distill simplicity out of complexity, to name a few. We believe that this balanced focus on hiring for skills as well as attributes allows us to hire top talent at scale while removing bias from our interviewing practices. These core practices ensure we hire the best person for every role who will have long term success at HashiCorp."

To get a job at Zenefits, you don't have to know anyone or do anything special — we review every resume submitted, so if your background is the right fit for what we need, we'll be delighted to engage with you."

Jack Dorsey said his strict diet, exercise, and meditation regimen is the result of taking on his second CEO position at Twitter.  During an appearance on "The Boardroom: Out of Office" podcast hosted by NBA star Kevin Durant's manager, Rich Kleiman, Dorsey was asked why he's willing to put up with the stress of running two companies, Twitter and Square.  Dorsey said he views the stress as a motivator and an opportunity to keep learning, but said it was also the catalyst for making major changes in his personal life.  "When I went back to Twitter and took on the second job, I got super-serious about meditation and I got really serious about just dedicating a lot more of my time and energy to working out and staying physically healthy and looking more critically at my diet," Dorsey said. "I had to. Just to stay above water." Dorsey's strict routine has been scrutinized in the past. He meditates for two hours each day and only eats one meal during weekdays before fasting all weekend.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Serving as the CEO of two major corporations can add stress to anyone's plate — for Jack Dorsey, it was the catalyst he needed to make some major changes in his personal life.  The Twitter and Square CEO described that period during an appearance this week on "The Boardroom: Out of Office" podcast, hosted by Rich Kleiman, cofounder of Thirty Five Ventures and manager of NBA superstar Kevin Durant. Kleiman asked Dorsey about his wealth — which tops $7.7 billion — and why he's willing to put up with the stress of running two companies. "I don't really think about the money aspects of it, probably because all of my value is really tied up in these two companies," Dorsey said. "I have to sell shares in order to get access to any of that."  Dorsey said that he views the stress as a motivator and an opportunity to keep learning.  "I'm part of two companies that scaled doing completely different things, and I get to see this like, perspective in the world that I wouldn't have otherwise. It's just incredible," Dorsey said. "That's what really drives me and makes the stresses OK. It's also like, how to creatively adapt to all the new stresses. Every stress brings a new opportunity to bring on a new practice." Dorsey said taking the helm at Twitter again in 2015 — while simultaneously running payments company Square — was the catalyst for adopting a new diet and exercise regimen.  "When I went back to Twitter and took on the second job, I got super-serious about meditation and I got really serious about just dedicating a lot more of my time and energy to working out and staying physically healthy and looking more critically at my diet," Dorsey said. "I had to. Just to stay above water." Dorsey said that the added stress actually "made everything in my life better" and that he's grateful he took it on.  Dorsey is famous for having a regimented routine. He typically wakes up at 5 a.m., tries to meditate for two hours each day, and, prior to the coronavirus outbreak, walked to Twitter's headquarters every morning — a five-mile walk that Dorsey told Kleiman typically takes him an hour and 20 minutes.  In the past, Dorsey has experimented with different diets, including becoming a vegan and trying the Paleo diet. Most recently, however, Dorsey has been fasting, eating only one meal on weekdays and then fasting all weekend. The strict eating regimen has been scrutinized by those who worry that it sounds like an eating disorder. Regardless, Dorsey's stress-management routine has likely come in handy over the last five years, particularly in running Twitter. Most recently, Dorsey has had to fend off a near-ouster as CEO from activist investor Elliott Management and has taken a stand on tweets from President Donald Trump that violated Twitter's guidelines on glorifying violence and spreading misinformation about COVID-19.  You can listen to Dorsey's full conversation with Kleiman on "The Boardroom" podcast. SEE ALSO: Jack Dorsey explains why wanting to work 20 hours a day to be like Elon Musk is 'bulls---' Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: We tested a machine that brews beer at the push of a button

Last week, Tesla announced a 5-for-1 stock split, setting off a 20% rally for shares that were already at vertigo-inducing levels. For bulls, it was a buying opportunity. For bears, it was more bad news.  And for anyone wondering why Tesla is worth more than GM, Ford, FCA, and the VW Group combined, it was an education in how a negative thesis about a company can steadily fall apart. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Let's spend a little bit of time in a parallel universe that, believe it or not, actually exists.  Tesla is worth anywhere from $250 billion to $300 billion in market cap these days, after an epic rally that started at the beginning of the year, and is still going. It has logged swings in valuation as big as Ford's entire market cap, and bulls have gleefully noted that Tesla is now worth more than the entire Detroit Big Three combined — plus the VW Group.  Tesla also sold just over 250,000 vehicles last year — a record for Musk but nothing compared to Ford , which sold almost four times that many pickup trucks alone, in just the US. A fundamental assessment of Tesla's business does not yield a $300-billion company. But a fundamental analysis of General Motors doesn't add up to $40-billion market-cap company, when you consider that has an enterprise value of $130 billion and has been posting an annual profit of about $10 billion every year since 2015. It's obvious that Tesla is currently wildly overvalued, while the entire traditional auto industry, which had been racking up pretty routine profits, pre-pandemic, is wildly undervalued. Tesla's parallel universe, explained Welcome to the parallel universe! It exists because the facts on the ground are indisputable. Tesla is indeed valued at stratospheric levels by investors, who think the company is either a great bet on an electrified transportation future — or a great place to park money in a low-yield world. And Tesla has indeed produced far fewer vehicles and generated far less revenue than its old-school competition. A fair amount of bickering about this parallel universe has done nothing to make it go poof, returning us to a realm governed by proper business assessments. The bulls have kept on winning, and the bears have kept on losing.  The latest defeat came last week, when Tesla announced a 5-for-1 stock split. This kind of move changes nothing about a company's valuation, but does somewhat artificially reduce the stock price, opening up some opportunity for less flush buyers to come off the sidelines. It can bolster the confidence of established investors, encouraging them to hold what they have (now multiplied) and buy more and what to them might resemble a discount. The upshot of the move was to push the Tesla rally another 20%. Musk has needled short-sellers on plenty of occasions — Who could forget the satiny, red short-shorts that bore the Tesla lineup's initials (S-E-3-Y) and that sold out immediately? — but the stock-split was more like a dagger to the heart. Tesla has long been an appealing yet dangerous stock to short. Along with Apple, it's among the most heavily shorted in the market. A history of volatility has made the risk worth it, for intermittent rewards.  Götterdämmerung for short-sellers But long-term, the shorts have been screwed. Tesla has returned better than 6,700% since its 2010 IPO. It hasn't just beaten the market. It has created its own, alternative market, where the familiar rules don't apply and 20% gains come out of nowhere.  This is why I've argued, on several occasions, that it's pointless to short Tesla. "It was a bad idea to short Tesla at $200, at $400, and even now at $900 or whatever," I wrote the last time I offered this advice — and I'll now see your $900 and raise you $1,700, divided by five. "The 'bleak, reactive counter-narrative' [my terms] that motivates Tesla skeptics has been thoroughly discredited. Find something else to wager your money on." Or don't. The thing about this parallel universe is that while it's ruled by bulls, bears can't seem to stay away. I'll concede that over the next 12 to 18 months, something will surely knock Tesla's stock price off its near-vertical trajectory and vindicate some short-sellers' positions, depending on when they got in and how they' ve structured it. But the macro-trend is trend is moving north, as it has been for the past five years. But why? Clearly, Tesla is a stock that's fueled by a narrative, and by Musk's charisma, and by a historical moment when there's a lot of money sloshing around in search of market-beating returns. But that's not parallel-universe thinking.  In the alternative reality of Tesla — which isn't an alternative because we're really living in it — people both love the product and love the brand. That's what the elevated stock price, so out of whack with the business, represents. And that's why it game-over for the bears. I shouldn't have to say it, but love conquers all.FOLLOW US: On Facebook for more car and transportation content! Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: Why China Loves Tesla

  Sony's WH-1000XM4 headphones are among the best wireless noise-cancelling headphones you can get in the $350 price range. They have excellent noise cancellation, phone call quality that cuts out a tremendous amount of ambient noise, great battery life, and amazing audio performance.  If you're not satisfied by the way they sound out of the box, you can use Sony's Headphones app to tweak them. It's worth doing, because you can get better sound than the historical gold standard in wireless noise-cancelling headphones — the $400 Bose 700.  If you're looking at wireless noise-cancelling headphones, chances are you're also looking at the Bose 700. If so, check out our direct comparison between the Sony WH-1000XM4 and the Bose 700.  Table of Contents: Masthead Sticky Right off the bat, the Sony WH-1000XM4 wireless noise-cancelling headphones should be serious contenders for your head and ears. Indeed, "wireless" and "noise cancelling" have been popular criteria, and Sony gets these two aspects absolutely right. You're also getting great sound quality that you can refine to your liking by using the Sony Headphones app, and you might even like them more than the historical gold standard in wireless noise-cancelling headphones — the $400 Bose 700.  If $350 is in your budget for wireless noise-cancelling headphones, the XM4 should absolutely be high up in your shortlist, but make sure to read the full review below to ensure they're for you. Specifications Drivers: 40mm dome Connectivity: Bluetooth, NFC, 3.5mm jack, USB Type-C charging Codecs: LDAC, DSEE Battery Life: 30 hours App: Sony Headphones for iOS and Android Comfort and design The XM4 are very comfortable headphones. The earcups covered in smooth leatherette are plush and don't grip onto my head, but they're just tight and lightweight enough that the headphones stay on while tilting and turning my head in every direction. For reference, my head around my brow and tips of my ears measure in at about 23 inches. The headband is made of something firmer, but also covered in smooth leatherette, and it doesn't apply too much pressure, nor does the top of my head get sore after long periods of listening.  Design-wise, the XM4 are pretty neutral and modern looking. Their matte plastic exterior is available in black and "silver," which looks more like a kind of light tan or gray beige. You could make the argument that there should be more metal for a pair of $350 headphones, but metal would probably add more weight, and it wouldn't really add much more to their premium feel. Sound quality What's objective and definitive is that the XM4 gets the basics right — they have a very rich sound and a good, fairly wide soundstage. Sony also boasts that it collaborated with Sony Music Studios Tokyo for the sound quality of the XM4s. To be honest, I'm not the right person to tell you how much that counts for, but I thought I'd mention it.  Outside of that, it's hard for me to tell you whether these sound good or not, because everyone hears differently and everyone has a preference to how their music sounds. And that happens to be an area where the XM4s shine. Their sound is customizable via the Sony Headphones app, and you can change the sound to however you want it to be. Customizing sound through equalizer (EQ) settings isn't new, it's just particularly effective with Sony's app and the XM4 headphones.  Thank goodness the XM4s are customizable, because their out-of-the-box sound isn't my favorite. In their default state, the XM4s have big, powerful sound that leans heavily towards bass and doesn't give very much attention to higher frequencies, which leads to a muffled sound that frankly isn't very impressive. If you like clarity and a better balance that features a little more treble and highs, the XM4 won't be for you, and you'll want to go into the Sony Headphones app to customize the sound.  So that's what I did, and I found an adjustment that makes my music sound amazing to me, and it was pretty easy and quick. In fact, my own customization turned the XM4 into a pair of headphones that are going to be hard to replace. It was worth going into the app and playing around with the sound settings, as I prefer the way the XM4 sound compared to the Bose. (If you're curious, I use the "Bright" preset, and set the "Clear Bass" to +5 or more.)  Some don't really care too much and just want a pair of headphones that they're told sound good without fiddling around in an app, and for those people, I'd suggest the $400 Bose 700 that can often be had for less. They offer excellent sound out of the box. Noise cancellation and battery life Noise cancellation on the XM4 is excellent and on par with Bose, which have set the standard for noise-cancelling wireless headphones with the Quiet Comfort line, and most recently its 700 line.  In an office-type environment at about 53 decibels, including air conditioning droning and a couple of loud fans, I could listen to music at significantly lower volumes than without noise cancelling. The ambient noise from the air conditioning and fans, and even the sound of my wife on a phone call in the same room was all but forgotten while listening to music.  Without music, some higher frequency fan noise was still audible, but the XM4 made the room significantly quieter and more comfortable to work in. I could also still hear my wife's phone conversation, but again, it was totally tolerable, and I could still easily work comfortably without feeling distracted.  I even tested the XM4 next to my home's 10KW backup power generator, which produces between 65 and 85 decibels — a range that decently represents a Midtown Manhattan avenue. The XM4 did remarkably well at cancelling out the generator's noise considering my proximity to the generator, and that the noise was coming exclusively from one source rather than the "everywhere" nature of noise in Manhattan. In a sentence, the XM4 will absolutely make subway and walking commutes in busy cities significantly more tolerable and comfortable.  As for battery life, Sony touts an impressive 30 hours, and five hours of listening time from a quick 10-minute top-off charge with 1.5A or more adapter. All in all, battery life in real life is great — it never felt as if I was constantly charging the XM4.  Phone calls Sony has worked to improve the ambient noise reduction during phone calls, and that work paid off. I had a phone conversation at around the 65-75 decibel range (near my generator), and the person I was speaking with said, for the most part, they wouldn't know I was next to a noisy engine that produces 10,000 watts of power at 240 volts.  Basically, that means you can walk around a city's busy streets and have a comfortable conversation with barely any city noise making its way into the phone call.   That brings the XM4s up to the Bose 700 region for phone call performance, which is saying something. The Bose 700 were a revelation for ambient noise control for phone calls.  Apps and other features The Sony Headphones app is utilitarian but necessary to customize the sound to your liking, and while it was quick and easy for me, I see plenty of room for improvement to make it more intuitive and more attractive, especially for those who are less inclined on tech. Sony has loaded the XM4s with one feature that's incredibly important for a pair of wireless headphones in 2020 and beyond, as well as a bunch of features that aren't entirely necessary, even questionable.  First, the important feature the XM4s include is Bluetooth multipoint technology, which lets you connect to two devices at the same time. Multipoint is essential if you often switch between your phone and computer — you can listen to music from your computer with the headphones, as well as pick up a phone call from your phone without any manual switching.  Another feature that works well is "Quick Attention," which reduces your music's volume and turns off noise cancelling when you place your hand over the right earcup. That's great when you need to communicate with someone briefly, like when you're buying something. Volume and noise cancellation come right back when you remove your hand from the right earcup. I'd still think I'm being rude if I kept my headphones on while communicating with another human being, but at least the motion of putting your hand to the earcup is an indication that you're doing something to pay attention to them.  There's also "Speak To Chat," where the headphones detect when you're talking, and music and noise cancellation are totally turned off. When the headphones detect that you're no longer talking, music and noise cancellation are re-engaged after a set amount of time. It works well, but if I'm going to chat with anyone for more than a brief amount of time, I'm going to take off the headphones. If it's not obvious, this is one of the questionable features.   The Sony app includes a noise cancellation optimizer designed to, well, optimize noise cancellation for you by analyzing anything that might alter the earcups' seal around your ears. I'm not entirely sure if it works, to be honest, but optimized or not, sound quality and noise cancellation remain excellent. There's also a "360 Reality Audio" feature that supposedly enhances audio with some kind of surround sound enhancements. The setup process is odd, as you need to take photos of your ears, and it only works with the Tidal, Nugs, and Deezer streaming apps. I don't use any of these apps, so I couldn't test this feature. Honestly, these kinds of features rarely end up enhancing anything for the better.  Should you buy the Sony WH-1000XM4? Yep! I could leave it at that, but I need to disclose that the XM4s work best if you use the Sony Headphones app. Maybe you'll like the default sound, but I find it lackluster. After a little effortless tweaking, the XM4 became one of my favorite pairs of all-around headphones — you're getting some of the best sound quality, comfort, noise cancellation, and phone call quality in the $350 price range.  If $350 is on the higher side, you could still pick up Sony's previous generation in the XM series, the WH-1000XM3. Sound quality, noise cancellation, and comfort are all just a hair under the new XM4, but for the sub-$250 price tags we're seeing these days for the XM3, they're a bargain. To note, the XM3s would also benefit from some minor finagling with the app to get the sound you like. See what we said about the XM3 headphones around the time they were released.  If you're truly not interested in playing around with an app and you "just want a good pair of headphones," I'd recommend the Bose 700 instead. You can check out the Bose 700 review here.  Pros: Comfortable, long battery life, excellent noise cancellation, great audio quality, incredibly effective sound customization, impressive ambient noise reduction for phone calls Cons: Default sound is muffled and lacks highs and clarity, app is utilitarian and not super intuitive  Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: Why thoroughbred horse semen is the world's most expensive liquid
Hulu is a popular video-streaming service with thousands of movies and TV shows, including original Hulu content.  The platform is easy to use, but there some tips, tricks, and add-ons worth exploring to improve your streaming experience. Special features include Hulu Watch Party, which lets you stream and watch content simultaneously with friends, and Hulu Kids Profiles, which let you restrict and monitor your child's viewing activity.  Visit Business Insider's Tech Reference library for more stories. With more streaming services you can shake a remote at, it's admittedly difficult to keep track of all the detailed features that each streaming service offers, Hulu included. Since it's launch in 2007,  Hulu has become a major player in the streaming world thanks to a spate of critically acclaimed original TV shows and the addition of its live TV service.  If you're looking to be entertained, we got you covered with the best movies on Hulu and the best Hulu Original TV shows you can watch right now.  But if you're looking to get the most out of Hulu, here are a few of our favorite tips to make your streaming experience even better.  Table of Contents: Masthead Sticky   1. Personalize your experience with profiles People you share your account with are bound to have different tastes in movies and TV. Luckily, Hulu allows you to create up to six separate profiles so your family and friends (plus kids!) can enjoy a streaming experience tailored to their preferences and viewing history.  Depending on whether you use your computer, mobile device, or smart TV, the method for creating a new profile will look slightly different.  On the web, you can create a profile by hovering your cursor over your profile in the top right corner of the screen and selecting "Manage Profiles." From there, click "(+) Add Profile" and fill out the required fields. For mobile and TV-connected devices, you can create a profile by accessing your Account page.  You can edit or delete a profile at any time, and Hulu makes it easy to switch between profiles seamlessly.   Creating a Kids Profile If you wish to create a profile for a child, there is an option to toggle the "Kids Mode" on when creating a profile. A Kids Profile gives children access to Hulu's "Kids Hub," and prohibits access to mature content.  2. Track your favorite content with My Stuff "My Stuff" is exactly what it sounds like. Whether you want to be notified about new episodes, save a film to watch for later, or catch something before it leaves Hulu, adding content to "My Stuff" allows you to keep track of shows or movies you're interested in. To add a show or movie to "My Stuff," all you have to do is visit the details page of the show or movie and click the "+" icon near the play button. If you're fond of a particular television network, you can add it to "My Stuff" as well.  It's important to note that if you're using a device that only supports the older version of Hulu — what's billed as the "classic" Hulu app — you'll see a feature called "Watchlist." The main difference between the two is that "Watchlist" tracks everything you watch, while "My Stuff" tracks what you've added manually, which makes for a more curated experience.  3. Get better recommendations  If you're not happy with the recommendations Hulu offers, you can help the platform learn your tastes by using the "like" and "dislike" system.  How it works is simple: When you "like" a show or movie, Hulu tweaks its suggestion algorithm to recommend similar content. And when you "dislike" something, Hulu will stop suggesting it on the home screen and other areas in the app.  Using this "like/dislike" system will look slightly different depending on which device you're using, but in general, just look for the "thumbs up" and "thumbs down" icons. If you ever want to undo your sentiment, you'll just need to tap it again.  4. View and manage your watch history Embarrassing content in your watch history? We're not judging. But if you ever want to remove any titles from your watch history, Hulu makes it easy.  Your watch history is located within the "Keep Watching" collection, which you can access from the home screen. You can remove a single show or movie from your history, or clear your entire Hulu watch history once. Learn how to clear your watch history on Hulu. 5. Know the compatible streaming devices The latest Hulu app is supported on a number of viewing platforms, making it easy for you to watch your favorite Hulu content on any device. Smart TVs: You can watch Hulu on many different kinds of smart TVs, such as Apple TV, Fire TV, and Samsung TV. The Hulu app is often built into these devices.  Streaming sticks: Hulu is also available on most streaming sticks and devices, such as Chromecast, Roku Stick, and Fire TV Stick.  Gaming consoles: You can even download and watch Hulu on your gaming console, such as Xbox and PlayStation.  Phones and tablets: To watch Hulu on any phone or tablet, simply download the Hulu app from your device's app store.  Note that if you only have access to the older version of Hulu, or the Classic Hulu app, you have fewer options for compatible streaming. You can view the full list of compatible devices on Hulu's website. 6. Host a virtual viewing party Hulu Watch Parties are a great way to connect with friends or family when you're far apart. Watch Parties allow you to watch movies or TV shows simultaneously with others from each of your respective devices, while chatting about what's going on in a sidebar next to the video.  To create or join a Hulu Watch Party, you must have the ad-free subscription level of Hulu and you must be watching in a web browser on your computer or tablet. Also important to note: Watch Party only allows up to 8 people viewing from different devices. 7. Set the best video quality  UHD, also known as 4K, is short for ultra high definition video quality. Think HD (high definition), but better. For the uninitiated, 4K provides an image resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels, which is about four times as much as HD videos.  If you have a device that's compatible with 4K content, such as the Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV, you can access and watch 4K content on most streaming services. To watch 4K content on Hulu, you must have one of five kinds of devices that Hulu allows you to stream 4K on. Even if you have one of these devices, Hulu only offers 4K viewing for some of its original shows, such as The Handmaid's Tale and Marvel's Runaways. All told, when compared to other streaming services such as Amazon Prime Video, Hulu's 4K offerings are sparse.  8. Download content to watch offline As with other streaming apps, Hulu lets you download shows and movies to your mobile device to watch offline. But, with Hulu, you must have an ad-free subscription package to access this feature, which can come in handy if you're on an airplane or in a remote area without access to Wi-Fi.  Not all Hulu content is available for offline viewing, but you can easily search for downloadable content by choosing the "Downloadable" category on the Hulu search page, which is only available on the mobile app. You can have up to 25 titles downloaded at a time across 5 different devices, and each download expires after 30 days.  Learn how to download Hulu content for offline viewing.  9. Change the language The majority of content on Hulu is in English, but there are a few options for Spanish speakers (or anyone who wants to improve their Spanish skills). You can change the language of subtitles on some shows or movies. However, Hulu only offers subtitles in Spanish or English, and while English subtitles are available on any show, Spanish subtitles are only available on some shows.  Hulu does offer Spanish language versions (where the audio itself is dubbed in Spanish, rather than just the subtitles) of some extremely popular shows, such as Community en Español or Desperate Housewives en Español.  Unlike Netflix, Hulu does not let you change the language of the website or app itself, only the language of subtitles on select shows.  10. Format closed captions for better visibility If you prefer to watch content with subtitles, or closed captions, Hulu lets you add English subtitles to any show, and Spanish subtitles to some shows.  You can even customize the appearance of subtitles by changing the font, color, size, opacity, and more. Here's how to customize and turn off, or on, subtitles on Hulu on your desktop or mobile device.  11. Add a premium subscription Hulu partners with other streaming services to offer a variety of subscription packages that can greatly expand your library of content. In addition to including premium add-ons like HBO Max, Showtime, Starz, Cinemax, and useful feature add-ons like Unlimited Screens, here's a quick overview of the most popular plans and add-ons: For more information on plan costs and subscription tiers, visit Hulu. 12. Cancel or pause your Hulu subscription You can cancel your Hulu subscription at any time, and your access will continue until the end of your current payment period. If you're thinking about cancelling your subscription, or, say, just going on an extended vacation, you can also pause your subscription at no charge for up to 12 weeks. If you choose to resume your Hulu subscription, you can reactivate it without losing any of your preferences. If you'd like to change your Hulu plan, there are several ways you can do so. If you're signed up through Hulu itself, you can only make changes on Hulu's website, not on the mobile app. But, if you're subscribed to Hulu through a third party billing app like Disney+ or Spotify, you'll need to make changes directly through that service's site.  The bottom line After over a decade of updates and expansion, Hulu has become one of the most popular and preferred streaming services out there. No matter what you watch on Hulu, you can bet on a vast library and an always-improving interface that's simple to use. And if you're thinking about a Hulu subscription, the streaming service makes the decision easy. Every service Hulu offers begins with a free trial, which you can cancel at any time. SEE ALSO: The best media streaming sticks and devices Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: How waste is dealt with on the world's largest cruise ship

Get the latest on coronavirus. Sign up to the Daily Brief for news, explainers, how-tos, opinion and more.An exam board is “urgently” investigating after it scrambled the grades of entire law classes, failing students who were tipped for the best marks and giving flying colours to the lowest performers.Pupils in at least two colleges received completely different results from the ones they had been expecting, while many others are still waiting to receive their marks – a day and a half after they were due.The cancellation of exams due to the coronavirus pandemic has meant BTEC Nationals – vocational qualifications that can be taken in place of A-levels – are basing this year’s results on completed assessments and teachers’ predicted grades. Teachers were required to submit their students’ grades in a list, ranked in order of best to worst.But HuffPost UK has learned the exam board, Pearson, somehow turned these lists upside down by mistake.Pearson, the body that runs BTECs, confirmed some students had received “incorrect” results and said it was working to resolve the issue “urgently”.One teacher told HuffPost UK the appeals process could take “several weeks” to be resolved, leaving her pupils “confused” and “upset”.Elizabeth, who teaches applied law, knew something was wrong the moment she received the results: her class of 48 students had received an average Merit grade for their BTEC results, while her previous classes had an 83% Distinction* to Distinction grade.“I knew there was an immediate issue, so I went into the list and I clicked on the student ranked number one and I saw she had been given a fail, then I went to number two and I realised they had been given a near pass.Our worst students have got the best grades, and our best students have the worst grades.“Then I went all the way down to the bottom to the student that I had ranked last, and that student had been given a Distinction* and I saw quite a few who had been ranked at the bottom had been given a Distinction – that’s when I realised they had flipped the entire list.”Elizabeth worried at first it was her who had made the mistake. Her next thought was how her students would react. “I know a lot of them were very anxious because they couldn’t complete the exam, they were worried that we were going to give them a bad grade. Then what next went through my head was, ‘Oh my God, they’re going to blame me.’”She turned to a Facebook group of other teachers to ask if any of them had experienced the same problem. “They all came back to me saying they had similar issues where BTEC had flipped the ranking that we had provided them with.“So our worst students have got the best grades, and our best students have the worst grades.”When she informed Pearson of the mix-up, she was told to appeal using the standard appeals process, which she says is “pretty complicated”. “What frustrates me the most is that now we have to fix a problem that the exam board made.“We now have to go for a really long process of an appeal that was not our fault and wait, on average, four weeks to get the response for something that should have been done correctly in the first place.”Since Thursday morning, she has received emails from her “confused”, “upset” and “discouraged” students “asking what they did wrong”. “It makes you feel bad when you know their real grades should actually be a lot better.”As a teacher, she felt she and her pupils had been “100% let down” by the exam board. “It’s infuriating because you’ve seen the students work so hard for the entire year and then when it’s supposed to pay off and when they’re supposed to get the reward, you’re meant to congratulate them on what they’ve done – but you can’t because it’s all confusion and it’s all gone wrong.“My biggest concern is if a teacher is not familiar with the BTEC course, they might not be aware there’s been a mistake and it could affect those students.“It could have a massive effect on where they then go on to with regard to the next stage of their lives, whether it be university or apprenticeship, et cetera.”Around 250,000 students completed BTEC Nationals last year, compared to about 300,000 who sat A-levels in 2018. Around 20% of university students in England are accepted solely on BTEC qualifications.HuffPost UK has spoken to another teacher at a separate college who said the grades her students received “bore absolutely no resemblance to our previous success in Applied Law, nor to our ranking that we sent to BTEC”. They were unable to comment further.A spokesperson at Pearson said: “As a result of additional quality assurance checks, we have identified some students who have received incorrect BTEC Level 3 National results. We are working closely with the students and centres involved to resolve this issue urgently and sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this has caused.”It has also been revealed that BTEC students who were due to receive their results on Thursday morning are still awaiting their results in what some have described as a “shambles” and an “absolute nightmare”.I feel so powerless. Basically we’ve been fucked over.Pearson initially blamed the colleges for the delay, telling the Times Educational Supplement “a few centres didn’t meet our deadline for submitting grades”. But HuffPost UK has spoken to several colleges that categorically deny they missed any deadline.A representative at the City of Liverpool College confirmed their pupils had been impacted by the issue, and that the college had met all cut-offs for submission.Many pupils who have still not yet received their BTEC results are waiting with pending conditional university offers.Lucy Jackson, 18, said the situation had left her “very stressed and anxious and very frustrated” after a “sleepless night”. “The delay and possible downgrading on results mean I could miss out on a clearing spot. This could mean that I have to defer going to university for a year, which is not ideal.”Another parent told HuffPost UK their family was “really stressed out” by the experience. “I am angry for this generation of students,” one said. “They had to cope with teaching stopping suddenly and this is their future at stake.“As parents we have to support our children and I feel so powerless. Basically we’ve been fucked over.”A spokesperson for Pearson said: “We are aware that some BTEC students experienced a delay in receiving their results and we understand the frustration this must have caused. We are working closely with the students and centres involved to look into this urgently and provide their results as soon as we can.”Related...

In January 2019, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and Lauren Sanchez were publicly outed as a couple the same day Bezos and his wife, MacKenzie, announced their divorce.   The National Enquirer had been investigating Bezos and Sanchez for months and had obtained leaked photos and texts the couple had sent, including the now-famous message where Bezos called Sanchez "alive girl."  In the 18 months since, both Bezos and Sanchez have finalized their respective divorces and have embarked on a whirlwind romance that's taken them from Wimbledon to a yacht in St. Barths to the Taj Mahal.  Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. It's been a turbulent 18 months for Jeff Bezos and his girlfriend, Lauren Sanchez.  In January 2019, the bombshell news broke that the Amazon CEO and his wife, MacKenzie, were getting a divorce after 25 years of marriage. Hours later, we learned that Bezos was in a relationship with Lauren Sanchez, a TV host and helicopter pilot who, along with her husband, had been friends with the Bezoses.  Despite a tumultuous few months that involved leaked texts, blackmail, a billion-dollar divorce, and maybe even interference from the Saudi Arabian government, Bezos and Sanchez are still going strong.   Here's how their relationship became public and how they've spent the last year and a half as a couple. SEE ALSO: A history of the 30-year feud between Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, whose love-hate relationship spurred the success of Microsoft and Apple It all started on January 9, 2019. Shortly after 9 a.m., Jeff and his wife, MacKenzie, issued a joint statement on Twitter that they were divorcing. "As our family and close friends know, after a long period of loving exploration and trial separation, we have decided to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends," the statement read. "If we had known we would separate after 25 years, we would do it all again." MacKenzie is one of Amazon's earliest employees. The couple has four children together.  A mere few hours later, a second bombshell dropped: Bezos was in a relationship with Lauren Sanchez. Sanchez started her career as a news reporter and anchor — she was a longtime anchor of "Good Day LA" on Fox 11 and worked as a correspondent on "Extra."  More recently, she's worked as a helicopter pilot and founded her own aerial filming company in 2016 called Black Ops Aviation. Bezos has hired Sanchez's company to film footage for his rocket company, Blue Origin.  Sanchez has also had TV and film roles, including as the host of the reality show "So You Think You Can Dance" and playing an anchor in movies like "Fight Club" and "The Day After Tomorrow," according to her IMDB page.  At the time, Sanchez was married to Patrick Whitesell, the co-CEO of WME, a Hollywood talent agency. Sanchez and Whitesell had been married since 2005, but at the time the news broke, the couple had been separated since the fall, according to Page Six.  The couple was friends with Jeff and MacKenzie Bezos because they had houses near each other in Seattle, Page Six reported.  The National Enquirer said it had conducted a four-month investigation into Bezos and Sanchez's relationship and had obtained texts and photos the couple had sent to each other. The Enquirer said it had tracked the couple "across five states and 40,000 miles, tailed them in private jets, swanky limos, helicopter rides, romantic hikes, five-star hotel hideaways, intimate dinner dates and 'quality time' in hidden love nests."  Page Six, which published the news a few hours before the Enquirer, reported that Jeff and MacKenzie Bezos knew that the Enquirer report was coming out and had timed their divorce announcement to get ahead of the news. The gossip site also reported at the time that Bezos and Sanchez started dating after Jeff and MacKenzie had separated the previous fall, and that MacKenzie knew of the relationship.  The Enquirer said it had gotten its hands on "raunchy messages" and "erotic selfies," including a text that reportedly read: "I love you, alive girl." The tabloid said it also had racy photos of both Bezos and Sanchez, including one that was too explicit to print. Source: Business Insider Almost immediately, questions arose about the Enquirer's motives for investigating Bezos and Sanchez and the tabloid's connection to President Trump. A feud has simmered for years between Trump and Bezos, who also owns the Washington Post, a frequent Trump target. The Enquirer's publisher, AMI, is run by David Pecker, a longtime Trump ally.  By the end of January, The Daily Beast reported that Bezos was funding an investigation into who had leaked his private messages to the Enquirer. Bezos' personal head of security, Gavin de Becker, headed up the investigation. De Becker said at the time that he thought the leaks were "politically motivated," which AMI denied.  The investigation initially pointed to Michael Sanchez, Lauren's brother and an outspoken Trump supporter, as the person who leaked the photos and texts, which Sanchez denied.  Then, in February, Bezos dropped a bombshell of his own: an explosive blog post titled "No thank you, Mr. Pecker," in which he accused Pecker and AMI of trying to blackmail him. Bezos wrote that the publisher had been threatening him with the publication of explicit photos he'd taken of himself unless he stopped investigating who was leaking his photos and texts to the tabloid. AMI also demanded that Bezos no longer claim the publisher's investigation into his personal life was influenced by political motivations, Bezos wrote.  As a result, Bezos published the emails he'd received from AMI. "Rather than capitulate to extortion and blackmail, I've decided to publish exactly what they sent me, despite the personal cost and embarrassment they threaten," Bezos wrote. Bezos also hinted in the post that there may have been a link between the investigation into his relationship with Sanchez and the Saudi Arabian government — specifically, that he might have been a target of the Saudis because he owns the Washington Post, which provided "unrelenting coverage," Bezos said, of the murder of its journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, who was killed by Saudi agents. The "Saudi angle" of Bezos' own investigation into the leaks seemed to have "hit a particularly sensitive nerve" with Pecker, Bezos wrote.  For its part, the Saudi Arabian government denied any role in the situation and called the whole saga a "soap opera."  Things quieted down for Bezos and Sanchez publicly for a few months, until April, when Jeff and MacKenzie finalized the terms of their divorce. Jeff and MacKenzie Bezos both released statements on Twitter saying they had "finished the process of dissolving" their marriage and would be co-parenting their four kids. MacKenzie said she was granting Jeff all her interests in the Washington Post and Blue Origin, as well as 75% of the Amazon stock they owned and voting control over the shares she retained. Her remaining stake in Amazon is estimated to be worth about $38 billion, placing her among the richest women in the world, according to Forbes. One day later, Sanchez and Whitesell filed for divorce. TMZ reported at the time that the couple asked for joint custody of their two children. The couple reportedly finalized their divorce in October.  The Bezos divorce was finalized in July. A few days later, Bezos and Sanchez made their first public appearance as a couple at Wimbledon. The couple was seated behind the royals at the men's Wimbledon final between Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic at the All England Club.  The pair was spotted again in August on what appeared to be a fabulous European vacation: They were seen strolling through Saint-Tropez and cruising off the coast of Spain, in the Balearic Islands, aboard media mogul David Geffen's superyacht, the Rising Sun. Other guests reportedly included Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein and the founder of Thrive Capital, Josh Kushner, along with his supermodel wife, Karlie Kloss. (The group was pictured in an Instagram post that has since been deleted.) Bezos and Sanchez were then seen on fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg's sailing yacht off the coast of Italy. The couple appears to be close friends with von Furstenberg and her husband, IAC Chairman Barry Diller. Source: Page Six In December, Bezos reportedly threw Sanchez an elaborate 50th birthday celebration that included both a private dinner and a star-studded party attended by von Furstenberg and Diller, Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, and Timothée Chalamet. Source: Page Six Around the holidays, the couple jetted off to French-speaking Caribbean island St. Barths, relaxing on yachts and meandering around the island with Sanchez's son, Nikko Gonzalez. Source: The Cut In January, Sanchez accompanied Bezos on a trip to India. Sanchez attended Bezos' visit to Mahatma Gandhi's tomb and walked the red carpet with Bezos at an Amazon Prime Video event in Mumbai.  A few weeks later, Sanchez traveled with Bezos to another international event — this time, a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris, France.  Since February, Bezos has been embroiled in a legal spat with Michael Sanchez, Lauren Sanchez's brother. Sanchez filed a defamation lawsuit against Bezos in February, claiming Bezos and his security consultant, Gavin de Becker, falsely accused him of providing Bezos' nude photos to the National Enquirer. Sanchez claimed in the suit that Bezos told journalists he had handed over the images to the tabloid, but he says he never had the photos in his possession.  Bezos said in a court filing of his own that the suit amounted to "extortion" and directly threatened free speech. Bezos sought to dismiss Sanchez's lawsuit under a California law that's intended to protect against frivolous lawsuits.  In the lawsuit, Sanchez used the word "fiancé" to describe Bezos' relationship to Lauren Sanchez, implying that the couple is engaged. Here's the full sentence from the lawsuit (emphasis ours): "While Mr. de Becker's initial asserted theory was that Mr. Sanchez had sold out his sister for $200,000, Mr. de Becker soon realized this theory would not hold up because, among other reasons, it was inconceivable that Mr. Sanchez would ruin his relationship with his sister and her current fiancé, the richest man in the world, for financial gain." Bezos isn't described as Sanchez's fiancé anywhere else in the suit, and Bezos and Sanchez have never confirmed that they're engaged. In December, Page Six published photos of the couple on vacation, noting that Sanchez was wearing a large diamond ring on her right hand (engagement rings are worn on the left hand).  At the time lawyers for Michael Sanchez said in a statement, "Michael's complaint speaks for itself." Representatives for Bezos and Sanchez did not respond to requests for comment. News broke in February that Bezos had reportedly purchased the Warner estate, a massive Beverly Hills compound, for $165 million. The purchase was the most expensive home sale in California history. Prior to the sale, The New York Post reported that Bezos and Sanchez had been house-hunting in Los Angeles and touring mansions throughout the area for weeks. The Warner estate was built by Hollywood mogul and Warner Bros. cofounder Jack Warner in 1937. It spans eight acres and is situated in the Benedict Canyon neighborhood of Beverly Hills. It's an incredibly private property that's surrounded by tall hedges, blocked off by a large gate, and completely hidden from view from the street. The compound is home to multiple dwellings, including two guesthouses and a 13,600-square-foot mansion. The estate also features a pool, tennis court, and manicured gardens, as well as a nine-hole golf course and a "motor court" with its own garage and gas pumps, according to Architectural Digest.

Amazon's VP of robotics Brad Porter is leaving the company to join an AI startup, according to people familiar with the matter. Porter is a highly respected engineer and one of the 20 or so executives to hold the "Distinguished Engineer" title at Amazon. His team was responsible for improving Amazon's warehouse efficiency with automation technology, and oversaw other futuristic projects, like the Prime Air drone team. Porter's departure comes ahead of what is expected to be a record shopping season, as both the peak holiday shopping period and the annual Prime Day event are taking place in the fourth quarter. It's also the latest high-profile change within SVP of Worldwide Operations Dave Clark's team that runs everything from marketing and Prime to Amazon's warehouse and shipping network.

Amazon's VP of robotics, Brad Porter, is leaving the company, putting an abrupt end to his 13-year run at the online retailer, Business Insider has learned. In an email to his team on Thursday, obtained by Business Insider, Amazon's SVP of worldwide operations Dave Clark announced Porter's resignation, saying he's pursuing a "new opportunity." The email said Porter's last day is August 28 but didn't share any other details about his departure. Porter is planning to join an artificial intelligence startup, people familiar with the move told Business Insider. "Brad's contributions at Amazon have been deeply impactful," Clark wrote in the email. "Robotics is a critical capability for the future of Operations and we have an incredible team and group of leaders there and I look forward to seeing what they come up with next." Porter, who joined Amazon in 2007, was primarily in charge of running Amazon Robotics, formerly known as Kiva Systems, a warehouse automation company Amazon bought for $775 million in 2012. In recent years, his role expanded to include other futuristic projects, like the Prime Air delivery drones and the Scout autonomous delivery robots, growing his team to almost 14,000 people, according to a person familiar with the matter. Porter was also previously involved in the development of Amazon's Prime Now delivery service and various back-end systems that support Amazon's massive e-commerce site, according to his LinkedIn page. "Brad has been a great Amazonian for nearly 15 years, contributed in big ways to the organization, and has been someone I have enjoyed working closely with the past few years. I wish nothing but the best for Brad as he moves on to his new role," Clark said in a statement to Business Insider. Porter's departure comes at a critical time for Amazon as COVID-driven demand is putting intense pressure across its supply chain network. Amazon is expected to face even more logistical challenges in the coming months, as both the peak holiday shopping season and its annual Prime Day shopping event are taking place in the fourth quarter. The robotics team has played a key role in improving Amazon's warehouse efficiency, and is best known for the deployment of its warehouse-roaming machines that help move packages more quickly. In a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal, Porter said the automation technology in Amazon warehouses improves safety and delivery speeds.  A highly respected engineer, Porter was one of the 20 or so executives to hold the "Distinguished Engineer" title at Amazon. Porter's departure means Amazon has lost three Distinguished Engineers in the past six months, an unusually high turnover for the position (Tim Bray and Peter Vosshall, who were both Distinguished Engineers and VPs at the Amazon Web Services cloud division, left earlier this year). Outside the engineering community, Porter is perhaps better known for his blog post defending Amazon's culture when Bray stepped down in May. In response to Bray, who wrote a scathing blog post criticizing Amazon's decision to fire activist employees who spoke out against its unsafe warehouse working conditions amid COVID-19, Porter wrote his assertions were "simply wrong" and "deeply offensive to the core." Porter's decision to leave Amazon seems rather unforeseen. In the blog post defending Amazon's culture, Porter wrote that his Prime Air drone team and the broader robotics group "has become an R&D lab for COVID innovation" and that he was planning to publicly share some of the projects in the near future. Among the 72 new ideas he said he was reviewing, Porter revealed only a handful of projects so far. In the email announcing Porter's departure, Clark wrote that Dave Carbon, VP of Prime Air, and Sean Scott, VP of Scout, will report directly to him in the interim, while the rest of Porter's team will temporarily consolidate under Joe Quinlivan, president of Amazon Robotics.  Porter's leave is also the latest high-profile change within Clark's operations team, which runs everything from marketing and physical stores to its sprawling warehouse and delivery network. Maria Renz, VP of delivery experience, left in February, and Gur Kimchi, VP of Prime Air, was replaced by Boeing vet Dave Carbon in March. Meanwhile, both Carletta Ooton, VP of safety, sustainability, security & compliance, and Devesh Mishra, VP of supply chain, are no longer reporting directly to Clark, according to people familiar with the matter.SEE ALSO: How Dave Clark, the mastermind behind Amazon's coronavirus response, became one of the most powerful executives in America Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: How 'white savior' films like 'The Help' and 'Green Book' hurt Hollywood
