How do I respond to Playco?

A recruiter from Playco reached out about a Product Engineering role. This skeezed me out because:

  • I haven’t been an Eng in some time (TPM)
  • that’s obvious from my LI profile
  • Reviews suggest this place is a shitshow
  • they used ‘unicorn’ in the email

What is the deal with this place? It seems like it has changed names a bunch of times and has a high churn rate.

Should I even bother responding?

ive also never heard of Playco... but I have noticed random messages from recruiters on linkedin for positions I am clearly unqualified for. Might be they are just spraying the message to a ton of people
