Investors

We're fortunate to be backed by a wonderful group of investors including Peter Thiel's Valar Ventures, The Social+Capital Partnership, Graph Ventures, Real Ventures, Vince Monical, Russell Siegelman, David Stewart, Anand Agarawala, Daniel Debow, Christopher Michel, and several other strategic angels who have built and scaled successful businesses.

Careers

We believe in the marriage of simple, beautiful product design with the most advanced engineering. On the frontend, we care deeply about the craftsmanship and optimization that goes into creating fast, elegant experiences that are so natural they go by unnoticed. On the backend we know that delivering the best content to users in real time is the result of heavy duty engineering - crawling, indexing, classification, data science, and real-time, event-driven, non-blocking IO.
