Our Company & Team Overview:

MIT Media Lab product designer Jacob Cole, YC founder David Greenspan (Etherpad, Google, Meteor.js), and other veteran entrepreneurs have teamed up to build Ideaflow – a notebook that augments your intelligence as you type. Our product enables users to seamlessly capture and stitch together fragments of information, amplifying their ability to solve critical problems.

Ray Kurzweil projects that, by 2045, humanity will be hooked up to a "shared neocortex in the cloud" by brain-computer interfaces. We will leave the brain-computer interfaces to Elon Musk, but we believe it’s possible to build that "shared brain" now, and that it might look different than many imagine. We want to create a future where nobody feels alone with their ideas, where intellectual soulmates find each other, where superconnectors are empowered. We see our software as critical to creating the frame for humans and machines to work together to solve the world's most important problems. 

Our vision derives from years of research at the MIT Media Lab, we’ve now raised over $10M from some of the world’s most influential investors, including First Round Capital, 8VC, Sequoia scouts, and Naval, and we are looking…for YOU.

If you’re a strong Javascript engineer, have a lot of thoughts (writings, lists, quotes, ideas, or notes on people!) you want to capture, and are someone who likes to work with fun, bubbly people, drop us a line ✨🛁📓🤓.

The destiny of the Web is in your hands.
