Pre-Series A

Pearl is the front page of a creator that enables fan communities and their monetization. We are a Silicon Valley company backed by Y Combinator, the Thiel Fellowship, and ten billionaires/unicorn-founders including Paul Graham, Naval Ravikant, and the cofounders of DoorDash, Coinbase, and Eventbrite.

Active Roles

Why join us?

  • Naval Ravikant led Pearl's round that ten billionaires and unicorn-founders also invested in. Paul Graham also invested alongside the cofounders of Coinbase, DoorDash, Eventbrite, and Duo.

  • Pearl is in a rapidly growing market—the creator economy—and a rapidly growing segment of it. Friend finding has a 240% year over year growth rate and verticalized social has a 90%. Market matters a lot.

    When a lousy team meets a great market, market wins. When a great team meets a great market, something special happens. —Elad Gill

  • Pearl is founded by a Brown University dropout who left for Y Combinator and the Thiel Fellowship.

  • Our engineering team is exceptionally talented and experienced in addition to being stand up people you can trust and enjoy spending time with.

  • Pearl is targeting its next round of funding within six months.


Engineering at Pearl

Engineering team and processes

Our engineering team operates on two week sprints followed by a one week cool down. Each sprint has daily asynchronous Slack stand-ups and weekly video calls to demo progress. Engineers push code and review each other's pull requests daily.

Engineers also talk to users and creators weekly, are encouraged to pitch the team on features or product ideas, collaborate with each other and designers, and act largely autonomously.

Technical Challenges

We are building include group livestream audio rooms as well as automated marketing to increase subscriptions deployed on the creator's social accounts.

Projects you might work on
  • You would be building major features for our product and testing them with users.

  • You will get to build group livestream audio rooms so that fans with shared interests can meet and befriend each other.

  • You will get to build a companion React Native app that users of the web app are encouraged to download—similar to Discord's strategy.
