Company Overview

Imagine being part of a nimble team where your ideas and input have the potential to impact millions of lives. IRL aims to make an impact on collective loneliness by bringing people together in real/remote life. Our goal is to help our users engage more with friends in-person to boost their overall happiness, encourage curiosity and make the task of organizing hang outs a breeze.

Our team is focused on building an event social network. We're looking for self-motivated engineers who have a passion for building high-quality consumer-facing applications.

While we still ultimately retain our goal of facilitating people spending more time together in person, due to COVID-19 we have shifted our focus to online events and successfully raised a Series B round (https://techcrunch.com/2020/09...) and are currently in the midst of raising a considerably sized series C (https://www.theinformation.com...)
