Sharing videos is hard. How many times have you received an email with a YouTube link telling you to watch from minute 6:35 to 8:22?
The answer is ReelSurfer. ReelSurfer lets anyone clip and share any video from any website. But clipping and sharing are just the start. We’re going to become the most valuable content network on the planet, built from the clips people have shared from all over the web. People will see what their friends are watching & sharing, build their own personal content channels, and be empowered to create their own content via mash-ups and remixes.
So if you want to be part of this video revolution, give us a ring. We’re looking for smart, fun people to work on exciting projects ranging from interface design, front-end integration, advanced information retrieval algorithms and scalability solutions that heighten user experience.
