Working at Curate.Us
Curate.Us is an early-stage start-up that creates tools for bloggers, publishers, and end users that make it easy to clip and repost content and quotes with attribution and back links. We’re growing a community of avid bloggers, professional publishers, and end users who see the value of beautifully rendered, visual clips and formatted quotes to share compelling content with their friends and followers. Original content producers get more distribution with full tracking of where their content is going, how many views that content is generating, and how many additional clicks those views generate. Bloggers, journalists, and end users now have an easy way to share compelling content in the context of their own blog, personal or professional e-mails, and other community environments.

The Curate.Us office is located in the NoPa (North of the Panhandle) district of San Francisco, which is served by several bus lines (limited street parking is available). The neighborhood has many excellent cafes, restaurants, and shops. The office features a full kitchen, which is well stocked with food, snacks, and homemade meals on a weekly basis. There is also a full bathroom with a shower. The atmosphere is friendly and laid-back. In addition to cable television, ample entertainment is provided by George the Office Dog, a goofy black Labrador/Great Dane mix. There are currently 6 full-time regular employees and one part-time employee. Regular employees receive 15 days of PTO per year, 2 personal days, the standard holidays, and are eligible for health insurance. The Curate.Us work day begins at 10 a.m. PT.
