About Us

GroupMe is a group messaging app that helps millions of people around the world stay connected.

Since we launched less than two years ago, we've processed billions of messages, grown the company to 25 people, won the Breakout award at SXSW, and been acquired. Now as a part of the Skype division at Microsoft, our goal is to be the daily communications provider for *billions* of people.

Even though we're part of a huge company, we have a great deal of autonomy, and continue to operate like an independent startup that works hard and iterates quickly. We work in a sunlight-filled loft near Union Square with hardwood floors, a ping pong table, and a pinball machine. We sing karaoke across the street sometimes. Basically, we love our jobs and have a lot of fun doing them.

We work on the best equipment we can get at the Apple Store as well.
