We’re heading west!
In the past year, we had a major growth spurt: from about 100,000 to over 4.5 million users; from a single phone platform to six; from 50-person foursquare flashmobs to 1,000 person epic swarms; and we now have thousands of developers building on the the foursquare API. The biggest challenge: hiring fast enough to support that surge. Despite growing from 5 employees to 35, we can’t expand as quickly as we want.
So, to help attract the best talent in the world, we decided it’s time to open an outpost in San Francisco. We’ve been working out of the Square office for some time now (they’re awesome!), and they’ve been nice enough to free up more room for us to hire a full team of West Coast engineers. So, if you love Mission-style burritos, temperate climates, and want to work on some of the most exciting data and engineering problems in the world, contact us.
