why you want to work at snapchat

Work­ing at Snapchat is so much fun it was hard to get work done. That’s what some Snap employ­ees are say­ing.

But with an audi­ence of over 300 mil­lion peo­ple who use Snapchat every month this could be the place to work at if you want to change the world.

Every month the equiv­a­lent of every­one in the US uses Snapchat.

Every day over 175 mil­lion peo­ple send Snaps.

Snapchat reach­es over 41% of those between the ages of 18 and 34 and 71% of the Snapchat users are under the age of 34.  45% of Snapchat users are between 18 and 34 and the com­pa­ny is val­ued over $20 bil­lion dol­lars.

Keep in mind that Snapchat is only 3 years old.

Snap is a pub­lic com­pa­ny as of March 2017 and expects to gen­er­ate over $750 mil­lion dol­lars in 2017.  While its excep­tion­al growth has slowed since going pub­lic 300 mil­lion users is a lot of adop­tion.

What is SnapChat?

Snap says that they are a cam­era com­pa­ny and that rein­vent­ing the cam­era rep­re­sents their strongest way to improve the way peo­ple live and com­mu­ni­cate.  They want their users to “live in the moment, learn about the world, and have fun togeth­er”.

The two prod­ucts they cre­at­ed are Snapchat and Spec­ta­cles.

Snapchat is the mobile app used by over 175 mil­lion peo­ple every day and Spec­ta­cles seem to be a work in progress with lim­it­ed dis­tri­b­u­tion at this time.

Accord­ing to Snap, Spec­ta­cles are the sun­glass­es that make it easy to make mem­o­ries from your per­spec­tive, and then relive them lat­er. The Spec­ta­cles team is the newest mem­ber of the Snap Inc. fam­i­ly, sit­u­at­ed at the inter­sec­tion of cut­ting edge cam­era tech­nol­o­gy and soft­ware.
