About Bitly

Empower people to make better decisions by providing insight into the connected world.

Since 2008, Bitly has been committed to the power of the link. Privately held, based in NYC, Bitly shortens more than 1 billion links per month as an integral part of social, SMS, email efforts (and more) from publishers, brands, government organizations, educational institutions, non-profits and individual users. Processing more than 6 billion clicks on those links per month, Bitly remains the leader in an optimal sharing experience, and continues to unveil new products while generating one of the most valuable proprietary datasets in the world today.

  • Jehiah Czebotar VP of Engineering

    When not painstakingly shortening urls by hand, Jehiah can be found riding trains, learning Amharic, or building iPhone apps to help others do both of those things more efficiently.

    A lover of data, he has been known to compile amazing personal annual reports documenting the details of his day to day life that most people take for granted, which you can see here: http://jehiah.cz/one-two/

    It's a little known fact that Jehiah's sleep, not his code, powers bitly.
