A NEW SOCIAL FUTURE 🧑‍🤝‍

How is it that in a world that’s evolving so quickly that social products still feel the same? Strangely enough, we’re still using products that were invented in the 2G era. There seems to be an emptiness with the current experience and today’s products are built to force humanity to be superficial. We’d like to change that. With the advancements in technology, so much more is possible today that wasn’t even possible, just a few years ago. We believe the timing couldn’t be better.

5 PRINCIPLES 💭

We’re thoughtful about why we do things and here are 5 principles guiding our thinking:

  • Advancements in Tech & AI: Allowing more bits to be pushed to users in real-time and thus allowing far richer, more personalised experiences.
  • User’s Comfortable Online: 50% of people’s waking lives are spent on smartphones in emerging countries.
  • Vertical Communities: We don’t live our lives in one massive community. We’re specific in the activities we engage in (art, gaming, fitness etc).
  • New Business Models: Putting customers at the center. These won’t be ad-driven in the traditional sense. Think micro-transactions, subscriptions, and more.
  • Consumers as Owners: It’s a bit strange that consumers aren’t part of the value chain. Turning customers into owners is a fascinating thought.

BUILD MAGICAL THINGS 💖

It’s so clear to us that technology evolves but people stay the same. We’re solving for a core human need – social connection and with all the evolution in technology, today we can solve for that in brand new ways.

At our core, we’re a creative company. Ideas and pixels is where we live and we love building magical products that make our users feel ‘wow’ inside. It’s not just about features, it’s also about how they make people feel. We build at the intersection of the scientific and the romantic.

And it all starts with people, the right team that cares deeply about our mission, values and our users. At hike, you’ll have the chance to do the best work of your life.

THE HIKE CODE

We’re on a journey to build something new, something different, and making anything innovative & new requires the ability to surrender to the unknown. The Hike Code is our value system. It is our guide to navigate through the unknown to build incredible products.

  • Top Talent in Every Role: We look for people with an incredible intellect. Both skills and values are important to us.
  • Pro-Sports Team: Strengths based, results-driven with a “team-first” attitude
  • Customer at the Centre: Everything we do is inspired by how we can better solve for our customer.
  • Constant Innovation: It’s our DNA to walk into the unknown in search of having a meaningful impact.
  • Act Like Owners: We own the output of what we do, even if it’s explicitly not our job.
  • Thoughtful Decision Making: Clear Mind + Obsession to Simplify + Data-Driven. We strive to be thoughtful.
  • Bias for Action: We understand that success is not one big leap but tiny gains compounding over time #ABH.
  • Be Open-Minded & Coachable: We have a quest to continuously #RiseUp to be the best version of ourselves.
