The implication seems to be that gp has never interviewed and hired people who "had this sort of independent and outside-the-box thinking".

If the implication is true, that would be a data point.

If the implication is false, it would be an exciting data point!

HN being what it is, here is quite a non-zero chance to meet a person with real hiring power who really could have made an offer to the person in question.

The GP's sentence was in the conditional perfect (would have), which means he never met someone like that (otherwise he would have said "did").
