One chat app to rule them all
After 4 years at YC, I'm totally jealous of all these founders building amazing startups. Time to give in to the urge and join the fun! I'm now working 24/7 on http://Beeper.com. The idea is simple: messaging today is painfully fragmented. We're going to fix that.
Every time we communicate there is friction lurking under the surface. E.g. Which app did I message her on? Where's that photo gone? Why can't I join an iMessage group from my Android? Our mission is to eliminate that friction and boost the efficiency of the entire human race.
That's the long goal. Today, we're building the best darn chat app in the world. We've raised money (thanks YC!) and we're hiring: looking for React, iOS, Android devs, k8s SREs, product, design, support and growth. If you are passionate about chat, send me a DM!
