We empower marketers to make better decisions by providing insight into the connected world.

Since 2008, we have been committed to unleashing the power of the link. Based in New York City, we shorten nearly half a billion links per month as an integral part of social, SMS, email efforts (and more) from brands, marketers, publishers, government organizations, non-profits and individual users. Processing more than eight billion clicks on those links per month, we continue to work to unveil new products while generating one of the most valuable proprietary datasets in the world today.

Words we live by

Do or do not, there is no try.

We will do great things. We will take risks. We will make it happen.

Knowledge is power.

We are curious. We strive to discover new things and share them with the world.

This Land is our Land.

We are in this together and we are all owners.


We strive for excellence in all we do. We care.


We treat our teammates, customers, and partners with integrity and value relationships that we build.
