Backplane builds social communities around interests, affinities, and movements. We have started by launching the world's largest brands (Nike, Coke, Lady Gaga and Mandela) and will be scaling to an entire universe of communities.
Current online communities are broken -- when they scale, communication breaks down. Considering the sheer number of communities in the world and their individual uniqueness, this is an extremely difficult and momentous problem to solve. We’re tackling it head on through a confluence of machine learning, crowdsourced moderation, and powerful organizer tools.
As a Backplane employee, you'll be immersed with top designers and engineers (and we mean that). Our culture is fun and casual, but ambitious. You can expect to work with people who truly care about honing their skills and making a difference through their creations.
We cater in lunch and dinner and have a fully stocked kitchen. We give generous stock options, competitive salaries, and Apple equipment, along with the usual medical, dental and vision benefits.
Backplane was founded 2011 and is located in Palo Alto, CA. We have over 30 employees and have been funded by Google Ventures, Sequoia and Greylock.
