Our story and vision

When Akash, Kushal, and Anuj were students at Purdue in early 2020, they had a vision to bring brands to their campus to engage with the students in an exciting way. Purdue was not in a major city, but had students that were the target audience for the brand. Our first thesis was that popups solve this. And the way we tested it? Hosting a popup in a Uhaul truck in the middle of campus. We realized that a more scalable way to reach consumers was by being where they are, and that's when the concept of product placements clicked. We came to this conclusion because we are the end consumers of our platform. We believe that product discovery is going to change to be where the consumers are leading to a more authentic form of commerce that ultimately provides better conversion for brands. Gustaf (ex-head of growth at Airbnb & partner at Y Combinator) believed in this vision and accepted us into Y Combinator. As we continue to grow, being curious and scrappy will continue to help shape our vision.

Our team and how we work

We currently have 10 incredible people working at Glimpse - Akash, Anuj, Kushal, Dan, Megan, Daryl, Jessica, Andres, Ahmed, and Nadra. We have a small hub in NYC, but our team spans 4 different countries and 5 different time zones. We approach work with a remote-first mindset using a mix of sync and async best practices and plan on having IRL meetups from time to time. We believe talent is everywhere and that a flexible work culture leads to the best work. Each team member has strong relationships with each other and we bond about everything ranging from personal interests, travel, etc. and everyone supports each other. With a diverse and global team, we are able to learn about multiple cultures and global perspectives. We encourage sharing and receiving feedback. Outside of just work, we do various team bondings from trivia and game sessions to unique activities to show off personal interests.

Our values and commitments to building an incredible team

We believe that talent is everywhere and that a diverse top of the funnel is the way to build an incredible team. At Glimpse, we have an open application for every role in the company, ask about interest in Glimpse as opposed to just filtering off of resume, and screen all candidates that show genuine interest in Glimpse to have have access to the same opportunity. Our team, including founders, come from all paths of life and want to make sure that we give that same opportunity to all candidates.

At Glimpse, we value flexibility, care, trust, connection, and vision. In new hires, we look for a desire to delight the customer through curiosity and creativity, initiative and scrappiness, ownership and openness to learning, and diversity of thought and drive.

At Glimpse, we offer competitive pay and equity packages, 401K, and healthcare benefits to all employees. On top of these benefits, we offer wellness reimbursement, learning opportunity reimbursement, WFH stipend, and coworking space reimbursement.

Glimpse is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. We are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity, or veteran status.
