The private social network for your neighborhood.

Culture

Earn trust everyday.
Our members trust in us and our trust in each other is paramount, and we earn this trust every day. We guard the privacy of our members and provide a civil place for communities to thrive. We debate in plain sight with a transparent, inclusive and consistent decision making process.

Invest in community.
We believe in the transformative power of community. We empower neighbors to build stronger and safer local communities around the world. We are building our company in the spirit of a great neighborhood. We welcome newcomers, extend a helping hand, and embrace collaboration. We seek and respect diverse opinions and perspectives. We are good neighbors.

Customer obsessed.
Customers are the lifeblood of our business; we develop products with their needs at the forefront, innovate relentlessly to better address these needs, and work every day to earn their love and trust. Customers include members, as well as advertisers, organizations such as public agencies and charities, and local businesses. In particular, we believe that when local businesses thrive, communities thrive. We partner with those that share our values and help us on our mission to become the essential local platform.

Think big.
We push each other to aim high because neighborhoods everywhere are counting on us. We are building a company with global impact, but exercise a discipline to start small and double-down on what works. We push through fear of failure because we know big leaps forward come from new approaches and voices.

Experiment and learn quickly.
We believe innovation will come from experimentation and iteration. We build remarkable products by acting on member feedback and insights. We are curious and humble and know the best learning is often through failure.

Act like an owner.
Just as our neighbors take pride in their communities, we take pride in our work. We follow through on our commitments.
