Winner of TechCrunch Disrupt NYC, May 2014 - http://techcrunch.com/2014/05/05/vurb

Vurb enables people to find, plan, and do by connecting them to the most relevant information and tools from apps and services in a single mobile experience.

---

Remember how we used to "surf the Internet" - fluidly moving from blue link to blue link? Today, the web is fragmented across millions of websites - leaving us with tons of browser tabs and single purpose mobile apps.

Let's reinvent how we use the Internet. Rather than opening up multiple windows or tabs, flipping between websites, or hopping from app to app, Vurb weaves together services and brings them into a unified experience - web or mobile.

For example - when planning dinner and a movie, rather than jumping between IMDb, Rotten Tomatoes, Fandango, Yelp, OpenTable, Google Maps, etc., Vurb brings those interactions to you in one cohesive experience.

Why Us?

- Equity
- Competitive salary
- Medical, dental & vision insurance
- Open vacation and sick leave policy
- Daily meals
- Unlimited snacks
- Monthly team outings
- Top notch equipment
- Dog friendly
- Located near BART in the heart of downtown San Francisco

We’re a small but mighty team working on innovating mobile search and looking for team members that want to create experiences that people will use every day. Joining us early means you get to work on what you want with the ability to tackle the big technical challenges that come from creating a new paradigm for the web. We are product focused, design-centric, appreciative of humor, and we truly believe our product will change the way people interact with apps and the world around them.
