OpenWeb (formerly Spot.IM) is on a mission to save online conversations. We build technologies that create thriving and engaged communities, reduce toxicity, and increase safety – improving the quality of civil discourse and supporting online publishers in their role as hosts of an open, democratic discourse.

Today, OpenWeb works with more than 700 top-tier publishers (including News Corp, Verizon Media, CBS, Fox News, Hearst, Refinery 29 and more) and hosts 100 million monthly active users.

Together, we are empowering individuals to take action, and demand more from one another. We’re crafting technology that naturally brings people together and fosters healthy discussion – so they have more dinner-table talks and less shouting matches online. Let’s take the web back from the trolls – together.

Why is your company a great place to work?

OpenWeb is one of the most inspiring places to work because we live by the saying “work hard, play hard”. I know it’s corny but it’s true.

On our R&D side – we use the most modern tools and technologies (like golang, ruby, and react to name a few), and because we are in a super growth stage you truly see and feel your impact on the whole team and our products.
This is true for the Marketing, Sales, HR, Operations teams also! You’ll grow your grow your career, your skills, your future; we truly believe in internal promotion and cross company movement.

We also know how to have fun. We have the entire balcony so if you need a little sunshine break you’ve got it and we encourage you to bring your dog to work (seriously, the more the merrier).

In pre-corona days we had weekly Happy Hours (we try to mix things up with local APIs, wheat beers, and other fun snacks and drinks). Our team will also take breaks in the music room which is complete with electric guitars, drums, and more.

In these Corona days we still know how to have fun – while mostly virtual we still have some small gatherings in our office balcony to stay connected and team bonding nights as well.

Other cool quick facts?

Founded in 2012, OpenWeb has over 100 employees between New York City and Tel Aviv. We are backed by world-class investors including Insight Partners, Index Ventures, AltaIR Capital, ScaleUp, and Norma Investments.
