We're Building the Future of the Past!
- THE PAST IS UNDERVALUED
- IT'S A HUGE OPPORTUNITY
- WE'RE THE TEAM TO CAPTURE IT
Timehop created the digital nostalgia category and continues to be THE team reinventing reminiscing for the digital era. We have more "old" photos and content than ever before, yet most of the internet focuses on "new". Timehop has a massive untapped opportunity to build new ways of consuming, storytelling with, and finding meaning in our digital histories.
Our goal is to help billions of people around the world connect with their friends around the past. We collect your scattered digital history from the far corners of the internet -- all of your past photos, status updates, tweets, checkins and posts. Then we add context and meaning so that you understand and appreciate your history better. Lastly, we help you tell great stories by making it easy to creatively share and talk about your history.
Each day, twice as many people read Timehop as the NYTimes. And we're backed by $14M in funding from the same investors behind Twitter, Tumblr, and Oculus who joined us on our mission to build the future of the past.
We're Team Timehop
Before co-founding Timehop, Jonathan created Exit Strategy NYC and helped awesome startups including Groupme and LooseCubes. He takes more selfies than a prepubescent girl and makes a killer duckface.
Before co-founding Timehop, Benny worked at Gilt Groupe where he built and launched the Gilt City website. Although he hasn't watched Mad Men, he insists on having a bottle of Bourbon on his desk at all times.
Kevin was plucked from the time-space continuum to help us put a halo around your personal history. His own checkered past took him from Wall St to Main St and finally to Silicon Alley. He bears no ill will towards Muggles and, in fact, enjoys their company quite a bit.
Matt is a designer, a cook, a GIF enthusiast, and most importantly a human. He was previously spotted at places like The Barbarian Group, Nestio, Yipit, and that bar down the street. He doesn’t like to brag, but his deviled eggs are pretty awesome. (Haha jk Matt wrote this and he’s totally bragging. Matt is a troll.)
Chris is from Jersey and is passionate about building excellent software product and engineering teams. He takes great care in creating an environment where people can be themselves and deliver exceptional product that [most] people should be using. When he’s not in front of his laptop, its being upgraded or has run out of battery.
Justin moonlights as a designer. He also daylights as one too. He's usually fascinated by retrofuturism, car things, fun facts, and probably has less reddit karma than Keenen. He also likes eating soup. Well, soup in general.
Kevin is a native Michigander who loves to code and is passionate around security. Prior to joining Timehop, he worked to build-out Amazon’s mobile authentication platforms in Seattle. When not coding, Kevin can be found traveling, checking out new restaurants, and sipping on an Old Fashioned.
Rajesh is a geek who lives and breathes code. He is from Mysore(India) and previously worked for Garmin and JP Morgan. He appeared at Timehop through a rift in time-space continuum and is currently spending his time building the next generation Tardis.
Let 👤 = '🇨🇳🐍😳🏀🎮📱👷'
Keenen is a tech, media, and travel junkie who's obsessed with being on-the-grid at all times. He comes from a background in digital media and IT, and will constantly swear he has more reddit karma than you. When he's not busy hoarding apps you'll find him giving lifts to hitchhikers and overeating.
Before joining Timehop Aly was the Customer Experience Manager at a SaaS eCommerce platform. When not managing customers' experiences, she enjoys going to comedy shows, contemplating doing funny stuff in front of people (on purpose), reading about cities and thinking of creative excuses not to excercise.
From reporting potholes to ordering laundry detergent with one hand, Jason has a passion for building great Android apps. If you catch him not tinkering with his phone, you'll find him indulging in his love for electronic music out in NYC or at a music festival.
Abe is your typical time hopping dinosaur (a timeosaur?!). He’s your guide through your digital past. He inherits his name from Abraham Lincoln, the mascot of our original product 4SquareAnd7YearsAgo.
A small village of friends

Damn right it could.
