An Insider's view of hOp

What's something quirky about your company?

The hoomans here are obsessed with doggos. This makes them great at giving treats. They keep lots of toys around for me and my friends to play with because we are very good boys and girls. They let us run free in their office and most of the time we are on our best behavior. They bring us to hOppy hours and all kinds of social events. RuffRuffWoof!


Chief Treat Officer

How does the company support your career growth?

Every day I get to wear multiple hats, and I love it. From modeling out future cash flows to spearheading recruiting efforts to coordinating volunteering opportunities, I get to do a little bit of everything. hOp has embraced my skillset and given me a lot of responsibility. It's quite exciting working on so many different projects.


Director of Operations

What is your vision for the company?

Social Media is broken. The big, centralized social networks pursue time-in-app and pay-per-click. hOp provides Social Networks-as-a-Service designed to create authentic connections within the audience. I believe the future of Social Media is sponsored where customers own their audience instead of renting it from Facebook.
