We ’re a stealth mode startup backed by Atlas Venture and Nextview Ventures. In less than six months, we plan to turn the mobile gaming economy on its head! Gamers will have a totally new kind of gameplay and developers will unlock new revenue streams that dwarf those coming from today ’s archaic banner ads. We ’ve made bold promises like this before, and we ’ve delivered: founding, building, and then selling AisleBuyer to Intuit Inc. We know how to build and scale disruptive technology companies and we want your help. |

You love the idea of working at a startup because it means your fingerprints will be on everything we build.
