GroupMe is an app & service that helps you stay connected with your real life social network: your family, friends and coworkers.
Since we launched less than two years ago, we’ve processed billions of messages, grown the company to 25 people, won the Breakout award at SXSW, and been acquired. As part of the Skype division at Microsoft, our goal is to be the daily communications provider for billions of people.
Even though we’re part of a huge company, we have a great deal of autonomy, and continue to operate like an independent startup. We’re a tight-knit team that works hard and iterates quickly in an entrepreneurial environment.
GroupMe is located in New York City in a bright loft with lots of sunlight, a ping pong table, a pinball machine, a Sonos sound system, and a well-stocked kitchen. We sing karaoke across the street sometimes.
