Product

The ways we find, interact, and consume websites and services have remained largely unchanged over the years. Browsers render faster; mobile devices have more apps, and yet we still adhere to a model where every service has its own way of organizing information.

Let's reimagine how we fundamentally use the web. Vurb lets you search and interact with online services in a faster, smarter, and social way, by understanding your actions and connecting you with relevant information.

Why Us?

We were featured on TechCrunch - http://techcrunch.com/2013/02/20/contextual-content-engine-vurb-wants-to-make-the-internet-seamless

Come join us in our mission to improve how we do things on the web - we're combining innovative UX/UI design paradigms with search, machine learning, NLP, and other technologies to deliver the new way of doing things on the web.

We're a small team, so it's a great opportunity to get in early and be part of something that can be transformational.
