The CEO of The Boring Company slept with his partner and newborn baby at Twitter headquarters, The Information reported.
Steve Davis spent the first few weeks after the birth of his baby with his partner in a makeshift bedroom in their San Francisco office.
Davis has spent the last two months working for Twitter after Elon Musk sought his help. According to The Information, which cites former Twitter employees, he was among the first to sleep in the office.
His partner, a real estate asset manager, attended meetings while breastfeeding her newborn to discuss Twitter’s real estate situation, the report said.
Davis joined SpaceX in 2003 and served as President of The Boring Company in 2019. He used to own a bar called “Thomas Foolery” and a yogurt shop, which he later sold for $1.
The news comes after a Twitter employee last month tweeted a photo of his manager sleeping on the office floor with an eye mask, pillow and sleeping bag. Manager Esther Crawford responded in a tweet, saying: “When your team is pushing 24/7 to meet deadlines, sometimes you are #SleepWhereYouWork.”
Musk told employees in an email that same month that they would have to work “long hours at high intensity” and be “extremely persistent” — or quit.
Forbes revealed earlier this month that the “Chief Twit” had converted some rooms in the San Francisco office into bedrooms. The bedrooms have been furnished with TV screens, chairs, a desk and a lamp, as shown in photos of the converted conference rooms. One even has a wardrobe, an air purifier and a washing machine.
Shortly thereafter, the San Francisco Building Control Board said it was investigating the building’s use after a complaint was filed.
Musk hit out at London Breed, the mayor of San Francisco tweet: “So the City of SF attacks companies that provide beds for tired employees instead of making sure kids are safe from fentanyl. What are your priorities @LondonBreed!?”
Twitter and Davis did not immediately respond to insider requests for comment.
