Description

A NEW SOCIAL FUTURE 🧑‍🤝‍

How is it that in a world that’s evolving so quickly that social products still feel the same? Strangely enough, we’re still using products that were invented in the 2G era. There seems to be an emptiness with the current experience and today’s products are built to force humanity to be superficial.

We’d like to change that.

With the advancements in technology, so much more is possible today that wasn’t even possible, just a few years ago. We believe the timing couldn’t be better.

5 PRINCIPLES 💭

We’re thoughtful about why we do things and here are 5 principles guiding our thinking:
Advancements in Tech & AI: Allowing more bits to be pushed to users in real-time and thus allowing far richer, more personalised experiences.
User’s Comfortable Online: 50% of people’s waking lives are spent on smartphones in emerging countries.
Vertical Communities: We don’t live our lives in one massive community. We’re specific in the activities we engage in (art, gaming, fitness etc).
New Business Models: Putting customers at the centre. These won’t be ad-driven in the traditional sense. Think micro-transactions, subscriptions and more.
Consumers as Owners: It’s a bit strange that consumers aren’t part of the value chain. Turning customers into owners is a fascinating thought.

BUILD MAGICAL THINGS 💖

It’s so clear to us that technology evolves but people stay the same. We’re solving for a core human need – social connection and with all the evolution in technology, today we can solve for that in brand new ways.

At our core, we’re a creative company. Ideas and pixels is where we live and we love building magical products that make our users feel ‘wow’ inside. It’s not just about features, it’s also about how they make people feel. We build at the intersection of the scientific and the romantic.

And it all starts with people, the right team that cares deeply about our mission, values and our users. At hike, you’ll have the chance to do the best work of your life.

Come join us and shape the future of social with Rush & Vibe!

Rush is a new bite-sized gaming service that aims to channel the competitive spirit of India where players can use their skills to Play, Compete & Win! ⚡️

Vibe is an approval-only community (one has to apply to join). With Vibe, we’re building a magical & safe place online where people can be themselves & make new friends.
