Jobs at Backplane

Backplane got its start by creating private social networks for music artists and major social influencers. It all began when Lady Gaga received 1.3 trillion social impressions following the release of her Born This Way album. The social wave that was created brought tens of millions of people on to social networking sites. Inspired by Gaga, they were looking for a place to share their passions for music, dance, fashion, and art - a place where they felt free to be themselves. It quickly became obvious that what was forming was more than a page on a social network. It was a social network. And while her massive following gained her millions of ‘likes’, it was the social sites themselves with ad revenues and data insights that stood to reap all of value.

Our product is a complete social networking system accessed via web and mobile applications. It provides tools for growing and managing your network, moderating user activity and deriving analytics on users and their engagement patterns. It’s being used by top brands including Nike and Cirque du Soleil, as well as artists including Lady Gaga and Guns N’ Roses. We’re currently working on a new social network formed in partnership with the Major League Baseball Players Association. Our product was built to help organizers retain the value of their network and we believe that our work has pointed to a new direction for social networking.

While we’ve had great success, we’re just getting started. Our focus now is on building a consumer-facing product, a platform for creating and connecting a web of public and private social networks. With gethr.com our mission is to create a platform that will also serve as the basis for an entire social economy. We now live in a connected world and the networks we create have lasting value. It’s time for a new direction in social networking, one in which the networks themselves are able to realize and retain the value they create.
