Who We Are
We use technology to bring people together and enrich real-life relationships with friends, family, and community because we believe in a world where social technology unites us and makes us happier. We started on this mission by putting together a team of people to fix social isolation and bring people together to do things they love.
We are a team of curious people who iterate quickly and use data to inform their judgment whenever possible. We also believe that different ideas and ways of thinking yield better results than monoculture, so we seek to include team members with different life experiences and ways of thinking about problems.
