Put a dent in the universe.

Little team, huge impact.

We're all motivated by making a big impact: on our team, in our communities, on the world. Each member of the small Grouper crew controls the fate of the company and more. It's a lot of pressure, but endlessly exciting and rewarding.

Make lives more awesome.

Actually improve lives.

We aim to genuinely improve peoples' lives. Not to give them yet another pointless distraction. We want to help people connect to what really matters in life: spending quality time with friends, old and new. After all, you need stories to take Instagram photos of :)

Build a real business.

We actually make money.

Grouper has what economic historians like to a call a "business model." This gives us leverage to do what we want. We've also raised funding from some of the best investors in the world to help us grow even faster.

Solve really hard problems.

Problems no one has ever solved.

Getting people together offline is a hard problem. Matching algorithms, logistics optimizations, customer service AI, a real-time CRM. Web scale is boring. Offline scale is uncharted terrain.

Have more fun.

Like, ridiculous amounts of fun.

Grouper is about having fun and making life more interesting. And we practice what we preach. We all go on Groupers, have epic happy hours and events, and generally enjoy the real world. After all, that is what we're all about.

We take care of our team.

In addition to full health care coverage, meals cooked in our office by a chef twice a week, a fully stocked office bar, an awesome desk / chair / Mac set-up, and, of course, free VIP Groupers, we also offer:
