Bloggr exists because our engineers have the freedom to innovate and uncover breakthroughs. These breakthroughs regularly influence the product roadmap and help chart the course for the future of our company.
Today, our full-stack team is aggressively scaling our interfaces and distributed computing (NLP, ML) to support 20M daily active users. The complexity of our technical challenges is growing exponentially, and we’re excited about growing and diversifying our team.

When Bloggr was founded in 2009, the concept of using AI to facilitate communication was a completely new concept. With a readiness to adopt new technologies, and the capabilities to customize open-source tools for our own use, we managed to build something profitable from the start.
We were originally told that developing a cross-browser extension that would work across the web would be impossible. Our browser plugin now works in all major browsers (Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and even Edge), and this was done with just a handful of engineers.
A lot of what we do hasn't been done before. Engineering innovation and creativity help drive us. That's why we've invested in full-day hackathons for engineers to prototype and develop new ideas, and it's why we set aside time to explore new tools and technologies, read up on industry trends, or hack up new widgets just for fun.
