At Scout, we build products that connect people through content. That may sound vague, but intentionally so. We're a bit unique in that we don't just build one product, we're building as many products as it takes to achieve our mission.

Our approach to building products is predicated on one core belief: customers don't care what you think they should want — they want what they want. Experimenting with multiple products is our way of discovering the intersection of what people want and bringing people closer together through content.

We don't claim this is the only way to build something meaningful, but it's our way. If you like building and shipping cool products, this may be a great place for you.
