Overview
ABOUT SOCIALRADAR

Today there are over 1.1 billion people that have smartphone devices that can broadcast their locations. Over 2.8 billion people have social profiles online. In the future, technology will inevitably combine your smartphone’s location with the power of your social network.
What this means is that when you walk into a room, you will already be aware of the people around you and how you are connected to them.

We are building that technology today for the iPhone, Android and Google Glass.

SocialRadar is the brainchild of Michael Chasen, the co-founder and former CEO of Blackboard. He started Blackboard with the idea to bring education online and grew it from a small handful of entrepreneurs to a global organization with 3,000 employees and 30m users before taking it public and then selling it just over a year ago for over $1.7b. He is looking for a small core team to partner with to create his great next company and is looking for the most talented and passionate developers in the area.

The culture is a true start-up atmosphere. The atmosphere is open and relaxed with jean and tshirts being the norm. Learn more about the culture of the company we are creating here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/upg4qxjz43mnez5/SocialRadar%20Culture.pdf
