Quip is a modern word processor that enables you to create beautiful documents on any device — phones, tablets and the desktop. Quip is built for the way people work today — across a variety of devices and distributed around the world. Quip has a simple and elegant interface that combines documents and messages into a single chat-like “thread” of updates, making collaboration immediate and easy. You can share documents and even entire folders so multiple people can edit and discuss together in a single, shared workspace.
Quip was founded by Bret Taylor and Kevin Gibbs, who worked together at Google. Bret and Kevin have created or worked on some of today’s most widely-used products, including Google Maps, Google App Engine and Facebook. They’ve hired a small team of people who are passionate about technology and about creating products for work that you actually enjoy using every day.
