Chartbeat is a real-time analytics service designed for real-time action used by everyone from The Wall Street Journal to Al Jazeera. We're democratizing data by putting it in the hands of people who need it to make decisions and take action - right now. Just before our 4th birthday we moved into our own sprawling office in Union Square, Manhattan. We are packing it full of incredible talent. Thanks to years of hard work and amazing funding by some of the top investors in the world (Draper Fisher Jurvetson, Index Ventures, and Betaworks) we're growing, and growing quickly.
We're an eclectic team of circumnavigating polar explorers, coffee connoisseur data scientists, pint-sized Kansan product queens, triathlon-fit hackers and freakishly strong designers. We have opinions. We're expected to share them - right and wrong. And that's how we build amazing things together every single day.
We're a startup, and we all have a stake in the business. So we work hard, and we trust you to work the hours it takes to give us the best of you. We don't track vacation because you can either make a decision on that with the good of the company in mind or you probably aren't right for us anyway.
You know what’s awesome. You make sure everyone does too.
You’re the one in your group of pals who’s always telling people about the newest app. That they have to spend the $4.99 for the download because that’s a small price to pay to have your mind completely blown every single time you open it. And you don’t even work for the newest-app people.
It’s because your energy for awesome things can’t be contained. You can spot it – awesome, that is – a mile away. You can’t wait to get your hands on it, learn everything you can about it, and tell everyone you know all the unbelievable things that it can do for them.
And because you’re so damn likeable, people love you for it. They actually LOVE when you sell to them. It seems ridiculous, but really, it makes sense. You’re making their lives better and they thank you for it, respect you for it, LOVE you for it. So they keep coming back for more and more of the awesome you’re sharing.
Which is why we’re into you.
Product savant and fearless new worlds explorer.
We’re product people, through and through. We don’t have customers; we have client partners who work with us to better our solutions and create totally new ones. We don’t have traditional sales guys and gals because Chartbeat isn’t a set of wares that’s hawked to anyone with some extra cash lying around; it’s a solution that needs to be shared with people ready to take action in real time.
You think in this exact same way. You understand your job is to find people who would benefit from Chartbeat, who need to take advantage of the real-time web through simple, actional ble tools that understand how they work.
And you can’t wait another second to introduce yourself and Chartbeat to them.
