You've read About, you've done your homework on LinkedIn, you've test-driven the apps and cruised the site, but you need more. You want to know what Tout's really like, don't you? (And if not, skip ahead to our Open Positions).
Tout is a precocious toddler in Internet years, just over a year old but mastering Big Data and massive video delivery and playing in the sandbox with big celebs, media companies and brands (most notably, we're now in the ring with the WWE - visit our Press page for all the coverage). Our favorite toys are Ruby on Rails, Node.js and the Amazon cloud, though we're already very good at sharing.
Tout's parents are founders and contributors to Google, GoFish, Meebo, Spinner, Crackle, Nullsoft, Sonique and other endeavors of which we are both proud and ... not so proud. We shared a nursery at SRI (Stanford Research Institute) with Siri. We're backed by the same investors who thought Siri, Facebook and Twitter were a good idea. We just closed $13.5 million in Series B funding.
Web 2.0? We've moved on. But we were almost "Snax" or "Oshi." (Whew.)
We have a Canadian skateboarder, an extreme skier, a former MTV host, a college baseball star, a D-1 tennis player, a D-1 springboard and platform diver, a former water polo player, artists, literati, political activists, world travelers, a freemason/reverend, an ex-physicist, a gal who climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro and a guy who refuses to wear normal shoes.
We are quite possibly the only startup with a 7'3" investor and a sandwich named after us at Ike's (secret menu: it involves chicken and barbecue sauce, if you must know). We're not the only brand anyone has ever tattooed on their body, but we might be the youngest.
We are definitely the only startup with its entire history captured in a series of fifteen second videos.
Our eminently accessible office is in startup central down here in South Beach/SOMA, where we are in the midst of a noisy playground of other unruly startups and have access to an ever-changing variety of lunch trucks.
We have a Ron Jones original on the wall, beer in the fridge, and top shelf tequila within a hundred yards. We have ping pong. Duh. We have a kitchen that makes it so you don't have to have one of your own. Our daily breakfast is epic (and it's served at 9:30 sharp).
We have all of these things. But we don't have you.
