Browsers haven't changed in 20 years but the way we use the Internet has changed dramatically. Sure, we're competing against the biggest names in tech - existing browser vendors Microsoft, Apple, Google, and Firefox. Some might have found this daunting, but to us it was exhilarating. That might make us geniuses, or it might make us crazy. We're not sure yet. But we know that this is an ambitious endeavor.
We like to do things right and we put a premium on getting stuff done. When it's crunch time, we work crazy hours, pull all nighters, have lunch and dinner in the office, grab a few hours sleep and are back at it. When it's not, you can find us kiteboarding, knitting, or playing Battlestar Galactica, the board game.
We offer all employees: competitive salaries and equity, a fully stocked kitchen, all-star equipment, mandatory vacations with company shutdowns the week of July 4th and the week between Christmas and New Year's Day, flexible vacation hours, your very own Rubik's cube, in-office yoga, billiards, ping-pong, and an office troubadour.
We're proud that we've pioneered browser innovations like share, chat, and notifications that are starting to show up in other browsers. But we're not satisfied. There's more to do, and we've only scratched the surface of what we believe is possible. With mobile and tablets, advances in bandwidth and screen resolutions, and the rise of a new generation of visual interfaces, the time is right to push the limits even further. And that's what we've done, starting with the Rockmelt app. With Rockmelt for web, we're rethinking how we navigate and find the best of the web.
What happens when you get a bunch of ambitious, creative, hard-working people together in a startup and give them a mission? A lot of cool work gets done, and a lot of crazy stuff happens along the way. Most of the time we get along. Sometimes we don't. And we often have too much fun.
