We are building a virtual universe which fundamentally improves how people interact online.
Today, that means a powerful remote-social platform. We already have people working out of our office spaces, attending our virtual conferences, or going to school on our campus spaces. We have folks hosting everything from magic conventions to artist EP launches to thanksgiving dinners, and even a few weddings.
Right now, all of these events happening online is necessary. We believe that ultimately, having these online can be better. Even without a pandemic, reality leaves a lot to be desired:
The mission of Gather is to remove these constraints on peoples' lives, and provide a virtual world which surpasses the real one in interconnectedness, personal touch, and expressiveness.
How's our team doing so far?
Since we started in May 2020, we've gone from nothing to hundreds of thousands of people on Gather daily and raised $26M at a $200M valuation, led by Sequoia. Every day, we hear that this "Pokemon x Zoom thing" is the videocalling platform people didn't know they were missing. Help us take Gather to the next level.

We're a small, friendly team based out of a state-of-the-art virtual office, where you can work whenever and wherever suits you. We currently live in three different time zones, but work across at least five, with at least one person thinking they're in Hawaii.
Joining Gather means jumping on a fast-moving train where you'll get plenty of agency and the potential to have huge impact in an early-stage platform changing how people live and work. These are unsolved, open ended problems with tons of room (and need) for creativity.
Other perks of working at Gather include competitive compensation, healthcare, 401k and multiplayer Tetris at any time of day. We also have company lunches twice per week where we hang out and try new games embedded in Gather.
