Internet of Things as a Service for the Family
Hangout is an experiences marketplace that brings people more ways to get the most out of their city or wherever they may be. By enabling real-time mobile commerce across local businesses, live events and travel destinations, Hangout helps people find and discover experiences––big and small, new and familiar––that make for a full, fun and rewarding life. Hangout helps local businesses grow and strengthen customer relationships––resulting in strong, vibrant communities.
We believe in great communities. Specifically, we believe that successful local businesses are the backbone of vibrant spaces. What makes your neighborhood great? It’s the combination of interesting and thriving businesses coupled with people who visit frequently. We are the thing that connects them, and we can make things better for both — building amazing communities in the process through our economic impact.
We work with business owners, and they take hard looks at every decision they make because each can mean success or failure for their business. To succeed, they have to get creative. They run lean. They get the absolute most from their teams. And, they plan for the long term. We want everyone at Hangout to take that same approach.
We think life should be fun. For our customers that means showing them the amazing things they can experience right outside their doors and virtually anywhere they go. For merchants, it means helping make their businesses successful and their lives easier. For employees, it means building a great place to work. All of this is steeped in our sense of humor, our commitment to excitement and cats. Lots of cats.
We don’t just want to win, we want to win the right way. We’ll celebrate difference and the ways it can change how we work and lead to bigger wins. We’ll work across the company and realizing that success isn’t a zero-sum game. We’ll invite diverse perspectives and making sure we take on challenges in an honest, open and respectful manner.
Customers are why we’re here. They drive our business. When customers view us as a daily habit — as something indispensable — it will mean we’re solving fundamental challenges and delivering amazing value. Whether it’s consumers or the merchants we connect them with, everything we do should begin and end with the customer, and we will be willing to do the hard work for long-term customer happiness.
