The WidgetBox Mission
Widgetbox (www.widgetbox.com) is a fast growing, Sequoia-funded, 23 person Internet startup based in San Francisco that is improving the Internet through choice and access. By connecting widget consumers, creators and advertisers, we provide choice to those who want it and reach to those who need it. We pioneered the rise of widgets to become home to the world’s first and largest widget community, with more than 70,000 widgets and 45 million monthly viewers on over 920,000 domains.
Widgetbox helps people express, connect, create, and inform using widgets, made and shared on an open platform. We operate the largest distributed marketplace for widgets on the web, extending from our hub (www.widgetbox.com) to more than 125,000 domains. We serve two communities: developers and consumers. Our products and services enable thousands of widget developers to reach millions of consumers, who in turn spread widgets to their friends and colleagues. We believe that the widgetized web is transferring power - content, traffic, control, however you want to measure it - from the few to the many individuals and communities online.
We are creative, fun, and innovative — just like you! We come from small and large companies alike including eBay, Apple, Yahoo, PayPal, and Wired.
The company operates on a few basic principles that reflect our values. Specifically, we will:
Treat others as we want to be treated
Open up new opportunities and frontiers on the web
Help outsiders and underdogs win
Succeed when our community succeeds
Enable fun through discovery
