Why you should join Mesh

At Mesh, we reimagined boring old corporate softwares for managing goals and sharing feedback into a simple social network. This increases visibility of progress and makes performance management an on-going habit rather than a forced process. Mesh replaces several different management tools and increases employee engagement, especially in distributed teams. Here's a short demo video and also an overview note about why Mesh over existing performance management tools. Backed by Y Combinator, Liquid2Ventures and other VCs, Mesh customers have reported ~25% increase in engagement and ~20% increase in goal achievement.

Why us

● Learn from industry leaders! Our Co-Founders comprise two successful B2B Tech entrepreneurs (the ex-founders of TargetingMantra - an e-commerce personalization company acquired by Snapdeal) and a former India advisory leader of a global Big5 firm. Mesh is backed by Y Combinator, Liquid 2 Ventures and tier-1 VC firms.

● Work with world-class tech team! Our core team has over 30 years of machine learning, scalable web services and core technical product development experience.
