About Pebble: https://getpebble.com
We have grown a lot – from one founder, to nine employees, to a team somewhere around 130 (depending on who is out sick). But we still make the same watch we thought was cool back in 2011. It is used for more things everyday and big and serious companies are partnering with us. But we are still Pebble. We are making a watch that people love using everyday.
We are not doing this alone. Over the years people have joined us. We see ourselves as the fortunate members of a developer community that spans more than 18,000 people that is making Pebble what it is. Joining the Pebble community can be as simple as using a Pebble or as cool as developing for it (it’s easier than you think).
We think the future is exciting. Join us.
