We are building more beautiful and fun alternatives to traditional documents. They're less of a pain-in-the-ass to create, and a lot less waterboard-y to view. Think Microsoft Office, but not as soul crushing. 

Over ten million people use Padlet, making it one of the largest sites in the world. The company is profitable and well-funded. Our office is in the beautiful Presidio of San Francisco where the air is pure and the grass, tender. 

We've gotten this far with just twelve people. Some special people at this company. 


Because we're small, there's a lot of energy. And because we have tremendous traction, your work and insight can go in the hands of millions. This combination is rare and quite satisfying.

We are easily bored. It's the one thing that unites humanity in 2020. No one wants to read twenty paragraphs of text, or sit through forty verbose slides. Yet, we keep making them, boring everyone out of their minds.
