Local business owners are part of what makes America great. They risk everything – years of their lives, their families, their savings – to pursue their dreams.
They’re not just important for our economy, creating the majority of new jobs. They also represent hope for the American dream in our communities. They remind us that it’s possible to rise from being an entry-level worker to becoming a business owner one day.
But they’re going to go extinct if something doesn’t change.
Because corporations are destroying them.
Large tech corporations like Yelp and GrubHub are stealing their customer relationships and destroying their profits with unsustainable fees.
Large restaurant corporations are also decimating independent businesses. They can afford to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on the latest marketing and technology which gives them massive unfair advantages on the digital battlefield.
We help local business owners survive by giving them the tools that they need to take back control of their customer relationships, differentiate themselves, and maximize the profit of their businesses. Our platform levels the playing field between them and the corporations.
We exist to help people — and we never forget that we’re working with and building products for real humans. Everyone in the company talks to customers at least once per week to figure out how we can improve life for them.
We believe everyone in the company should play a role in what we build. Our product development process is open to the entire company, so that we can each use our unique insights to better serve our customers and build the best product possible.
We’re optimistic about the future and grateful about where we are today. Our high-energy culture spills into the world around us. The good vibes brighten every interaction we have with our teammates, customers and partners — and moves us all forward, together.
We’re building a business that will be around for decades. We make long-term bets that align with our values — even if we won’t always see the payoff in the short-term. We set ourselves up for future success by going after the hardest problems first and learning from our mistakes along the way.
We believe that our success depends on our ability to move fast. We ship weekly and move with absolute urgency towards the goals we set. We embrace that moving fast sometimes breaks things and challenges us.
Our flexible policy lets you work from wherever you want — whether that’s our office, your house, or the beach.
We offer comprehensive health, dental and vision plans, plus a monthly fitness stipend to use how you choose.
We love building real friendships with everyone that we work with, so we do several retreats per year in fun destinations – to deepen our friendships, celebrate our wins, and plan our future.
We believe in owning what you do, so all full-time employees receive pre-IPO equity in Owner.
Time away from work is important, so we’ve got generous flexible PTO and sick leave.
From meditation classes to a home office stipend, we set you up for success where you are and where you’re going.
