bitly is the easiest and most fun way to save, share and discover links from around the web. We call these links bitmarks, and you can use bitly to remember, curate and share them.
bitly is available via our website, browser extensions, mobile web, and numerous third-party tools integrated with our open public API. bitly also powers more than 10,000 custom short URLs and offers an enterprise analytics platform that helps web publishers and brands grow their social media traffic.

Mike has been working on various Web and mobile products for just about 11 years - mostly in publishing and e-commerce. Before the Internet, he didn't know what a cat was and almost became a high school teacher. He is glad that the Internet fixed both of these things.
Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, Meg is a lover of movie quotes, photography, and pizza w/ ranch. She collects vintage sport crewnecks and is disappointed her career as a trapeze artist never took off. It's probably for the better though.. she wasn't very good.
Loves pretty pixels, coffee and more coffee. Prior to bitly she was co-founder and designer at Carbon Ads.http://twitter.com/adellecharles
Katie likes to live free or die. She's really good at making awkward comments and buying twix. She loves puppets and Ghostbusters quotes.
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-oh/
It's a little known fact that Jehiah's sleep, not his code, powers bitly.http://twitter.com/jehiah

Dan grew up in Brooklyn, with the mathematical distinction of occupying the zip code corresponding to the first five digits of the Fibonacci sequence. He earned a degree in Math from Yale, and has since been working as a developer at small startups that process large quantities of data, most of it generated in 140 character increments.
After realizing that computers are actually little electronic minions sometime in the 80s, Anton decided to command his Commodore64 to bend to his will and create games for his entertainment. Over the years, he honed his skill at wielding various computing technologies, tools, and the legendary Mjolnir, typically to the theme of "Victorious March." Using his power for good, Anton spends most of his time creating applications that enlighten and entertain. When not programming, he can be found writing music, forging armor, or slaying giants, or any combination thereof while watching hockey.
Jasmine doesn't always talk about herself in third person, but when she does...she stops. Hi, I'm an entrepreneur at heart, recovering video game addict and tech-driven insomniac. I like art, architecture, ancient egyptian history and sticky rice. In my spare time, I hoard tabs on google chrome, practice my british accent, and blog on jasminegao.com.
I'm also an E[nstitute] fellow as part of a greater movement to redefine higher education.
Micha Gorelick was the first man on Mars in 2023 and won the nobel prize in 2046 for his contributions to time travel. In a moment of rage after seeing the deplorable uses of his new technology, he traveled back in time to 2012 and convinced himself to leave his Physics PhD program and follow his love of data at Bitly. A monument celebrating his life can be found in Central Park, 1857.

Justin hopes to one day establish a bitly outpost in space, to solve extra-terrestrial link-shortening needs. Until then, you can probably find Justin breaking the build, taking photos of it, and/or trying to finish all the guacamole.https://twitter.com/jphines
Kim makes products easier for people to use. When she's not busy designing awesome interfaces, she's either hunting for the perfect Latte, whipping up some delicious paleo treats or chasing /dragging her yorkie around Central Park. Oh and she was a former member of the US National Skeleton team.
Alfred's PhD in experimental condensed matter physics helps him immensely at sifting through bitly's data in search of value and insights — primarily by providing the awareness that things could be much worse while he's debugging his code. Alfred sits between the tallest and shortest people on the science team which feels just right to him. Find him at Lincoln Center.http://twitter.com/Alphrabet

Pierce considers himself an old-school long-bearded unix hacker, which is odd because he only attained legal drinking age a few years ago and doesn't let his facial hair get very long. He's lived most of his life 15 - 45 minutes from the beach, in Delaware and southern California.

A struggling architecture student missed a bus home from college and used that time to learn to create his personal website. 17 years later, Pete moved beyond www.syr.edu/~pjmiron to architect systems and teams for Technology Pioneers in Brokerage -- Datek, Telecom -- Vonage, and Education -- Knewton. Now, he's reinventing the way people discover content on the social web with the team at bitly.http://twitter.com/petemiron
A refugee from several enormous bureaucratic corporations, Pinzler will often go home after work and fill out forms in triplicate just because he "can't get that monkey off my back."

I like to make things on the web. When I am not making things on the web, I am usually found spending time with my wife and daughters, watching sports, or reading about better ways of making things on the web. Occasionally I tweet about all of these things, as you can see below.http://twitter.com/jeffreytierney
