We're an e-commerce company. We partner with over 20,000 retailers, helping them connect with new customers through our network of best-of-breed social shopping apps and websites. Operationally, we're a media lab, founded on agile, lean startup principles. We identify new market opportunities arising from changes in consumer shopping behavior then rapidly execute new product development, iterating from concept to product-market fit.
Our business model is simple. We create new shopping communities, each attracting an audience of highly engaged consumers who discover, research, and transact through our apps. We generate revenue by sending highly qualified leads to our network of affiliated retail partners.
ZipfWorks is not a prototypical startup. We're not venture-funded, nor are we seeking a sale or exit. We do what we do because we love to build products; products that we ourselves find useful, appealing, and inspiring.
Our unique business model enables us to generate profits from the products we build. We're cash flow positive, and have been since 2011. As a business, our objective is to continue to invest in the growth for our existing family of products, as we design, prototype, and launch brand new services that capitalize on the latest trends in shopping.
We're structured as a co-op, in which all team members have equity and profit-sharing interests in the firm. We typically do not hire junior employees; we look for experienced operators, engineers, and innovators who can make a meaningful and direct impact on our ability to create and scale winning products. For these core team members, we offer pay and equity packages that outperform most traditional startup compensation packages on a risk-adjusted basis. We hire selectively - our goal is to keep our team small over the long-term.
