Join our Team

We’re an international team building the next generation of contact centers for businesses. Our products are chat and customer service tools for WeChat, web chat, and soon, other messaging apps. Our clients are top-tier multinational brands in automotive, hospitality, luxury retail, travel, education, and e-commerce. We are profitable and have backing from 500 Startups, Cherubic Ventures, and other notable Silicon Valley angel investors.


Our team is based in Beijing, but open to remote work. We’re a small team with a startup culture: flexible hours, reliance on personal drive and responsibility, we believe in what we are building, and we have a no-bullshit, flat organization structure. Our office is in a great downtown Beijing location near a metro stop with lots of good dining locations. Our office air quality is rigorously filtered and strictly monitored 🙂

We love hosting interns. If you want to experience what it’s like working at a tech startup in Beijing, we’re always happy to have fresh faces in the office, eager to build and learn. We have two positions open on a rotating basis so check with us to see if we have something available for your dates.


Depending on your interests and skills we will setup either a technical or business/marketing track internship. Past interns have built web and mobile apps, created product marketing videos, written content marketing posts, done market research presentations, and designed new product features.


Our sweet spot is a 6-8 week engagement. Before getting started we’ll discuss what you want to work on and what projects we have that fit your passions. We always try to tailor a project so you can complete if during your time with us and walk away with a tangible accomplishment you can take into your next interview. Several of our developers over the years have joined us first as interns.
