So in 2009, with initial funding by Y Combinator, we built a live chat platform that enables businesses to connect with their customers.

Today Olark is used by more than 11,000 businesses worldwide, and our team has grown from four friends in Palo Alto to a fully remote team that spans multiple time zones. We value diversity of thought and backgrounds and seek to hire genuine people who will push our culture to always be better, more inclusive, and more human.

We've grown and changed so much since the beginning, but at our core Olark has remained about the people: our team, our customers, and our customers' customers.
Every day a team of incredibly bright people wake up, sign on from around the world, and come together to make Olark work for our customers.

Whichever work space I’m occupying, you'll probably find me on a couch trying to solve something-or-other. I'll always be known as "that guy with a goat farm", but I don't hold that against anyone.
I asked my mom what made me unique. She said: "Your analytical side makes you good in the computer science industry but your spiritual side saves you from being a computer geek...LOL"
