Modern technology has but scratched at its potential to enable great conversations. Our mission is to change that. We believe that the more conversations people have, the better place the world becomes. Angle brings down the hurdle to enter a conversation to as low as a single tap - enabling people to make their online experience much more human.

We’re a small team with diverse backgrounds. We studied engineering, physics, immunology, architecture, design and communications in Switzerland, Sweden, Germany, Japan and Hong Kong. We learned the tools of our trade at Uber, IDEO, Arthur D. Little and in tech startups. We’re backed by a mission-driven VC as well as several angels and advisors. 👉 https://www.angle.audio/about

We embrace your nerdiness. As an engineer at Angle, you get to fully experience the joy of coding, without the hassles engineers at larger companies often struggle with. We don’t have lengthy decision processes, what counts are outcomes. You want to use a fancy new tool because it makes you more productive and/or it looks like fun to use? As long as it gets the job done, go for it, we’re in!

We have two core values:

  • ❤️ Speak honestly: We speak our minds, to uncover our own and each other’s perceived truths early. So we can maximize trust, make great decisions and minimize the number of elephants 🐘 in the room.
  • 💪 Take initiative:We are in the driver seat - each of us. We don’t wait. We’re not “blocked”. Being proactive means thinking for ourselves what needs to be done and taking the necessary steps without needing to be prompted.
