Our Client is one of the world’s fastest growing B2B short form video platforms for publishers and businesses in the open digital ecosystem. Sparked by the vision to build a united front for the open internet against centralized social network systems, we are upgrading and connecting a centralized network with new age decentralized technology, or Internet 3.0. We believe in empowering our partners with the ability to control their traffic data, user experience, brand, engagement, monetization, and ultimately their destiny through shoppable videos, livestream, and web stories on their owned and operated websites and apps. At the heart, we’re an inspirational community of creators, entrepreneurs, storytellers, and data geeks driven by the future convergence of commerce. Funded by prominent Silicon Valley and global venture partners, we have raised over $80m through an oversubscribed Series A, growing rapidly, and hiring exceptional talent to join the global team.
