Wildfire is the front page of the five miles right around you. It's an app where users post about local events (campus safety, parties, celebrity sightings, and more) to notify the people right around them instantly.
We are a 4-person startup of recent UC Berkeley grads backed by Y Combinator and several tier-one Silicon Valley venture capital firms.
Wildfire is used by thousands of college students and we are growing quickly. Over 50% of UC Berkeley’s campus downloaded Wildfire within a month. When a shooting happened near campus, we notified 4,000 students in 1 minute – and grew by 2,000 downloads in the next hour - literally spreading like wildfire.
This is a unique opportunity to join a startup with significant momentum where you’ll help define our company as it evolves, and build a product that will impact people’s lives daily.
