We are excited to announce that our team has joined Samsung Electronics.
We started this company four years ago to change the way we discover and enjoy video. We didn’t just write code though. We also built a brand that became synonymous with video discovery. We worked with world-class investors and mentors. We built a team of fantastic people - some of the best in the business - who loved working with each other day in, and day out.
In short, we did a lot, and we had a lot of fun doing it.
Since we began, the ecosystem has changed drastically, but one thing remains the same: consumers still demand an innovative solution to accessing their favorite content.
Our team is excited to develop new technology to meet these challenges as part of Samsung Electronics. Working with Samsung Electronics means we’ll have the resources to start fresh, building products that change the way we watch and discover our favorite content, now and long into the future.
We’re really excited and you should be, too.
Finally, a sincere thank you to you — our friends, fans, users, partners, mentors, and supporters. Without you, we wouldn’t be here. Every video you shared, every piece of feedback — positive or critical! — you sent, every minute spent with you has made this an experience we’ll cherish forever.
Lots of love,
It’s been an awesome few years working with these guys and I’m really excited about what the next chapter will bring. To Reece, Dan and Henry who all took a chance on me as intern (even though I was woefully overdressed) - I am forever in your debt. To everyone who has touched Shelby - whether you’re a user, a fan, a friend, or family - I thank you for your love and support!
Our vision of what TV should be like is far from a reality, but I’m excited we get to keep building it at Samsung.
Maybe it’s just the time of year and the color of the leaves, but Washington DC really is an impressive city. I’m really struck by how much the city planning and historic architecture have withstood the test of time.
To an outsider, this really does feel like the capital of the free world. To me, parts of Washington are also devoid of the character and messiness that is unavoidable in a place like New York (which I love).
It’s such an interesting time in our country’s history - we’re struggling with some huge political/social issues and yet we are also on the cusp of a major shift in the economy towards empowering the masses (Airbnb, Uber, Etsy, etc.). Though Washington stands as an awesome statement about our country, it feels like just that: a symbol. The real innovation and progress is happening elsewhere.
I can only hope that our government is able to adapt to this world and stand the test of time in the same way that the physical city has. (at Capitol Hill)
Pairing the right people together to get something done is the central act of good business people.
