There’s nothing more terrifying than the moment you realize you’ve misplaced something important—and you have absolutely no idea where it is. The only thing more stressful? Trying (and usually failing) to retrace your steps to find it.
Luckily, Tile is there to be the most helpful search party you’ll ever have, allowing you to tag your items (like keys, laptops, and bags) and quickly locate them from your phone. Way easier than an old-fashioned lost and found, right? It turns out that lots of people agree: The company has sold over two million Tiles to consumers worldwide since its founding in 2012, a number that’s growing every day.
If you want to be in the middle of the tech revolution, this company is clearly doing big things: “Tile enables many things to be connected to the internet right now. We envision that Tile will enable almost everything to communicate,” says Michael Farley, Tile’s co-founder and CEO.
Tile’s desire to be on the forefront of the tech world also plays into its collaborative, thoughtful company culture. Julie Willey, Tile’s Head of Hardware Engineering, feels like she’s making an impact with her work, and her team cares deeply about what she’s doing. “You get visibility. Everyone is open to hearing feedback and wanting to hear your ideas,” she explains.
Tile isn’t just about investing in the future of what it can do; its team also cares greatly about each other. From communal lunches to company movie nights, Tile’s employees know that a tight-knit, energetic group can create game-changing results.
“Because a lot of the ideas are coming from the bottom up, there’s a lot of innovation,” says Product Manager Mayank Kumar. “That makes this place very exciting to work at.”
