    About Us

    500friends enables CMOs to increase their customer lifetime value. LoyaltyPlus, our SaaS lifecycle marketing suite, makes it easy to execute loyalty programs and personalized customer retention campaigns. Our top clients include Kabam Gaming, 1-800-flowers, Pittsburg Steelers, New Balance, and Loreal. We were recently ranked a "Leader", the highest ranking, in The Forrester Wave for Midsize Organizations in Customer Loyalty Solutions.

    We were acquired by Merkle at the end of 2014, a $400M+ (revenues), privately held performance marketing agency that is majority owned by Dentsu Aegis Network, but 500friends is our own operating group. This means that you essentially get to join a start-up with the security and stability of an established company.

    We’ve kept our tech stack simple making it easy for us to scale quickly (currently 60,000 requests per minute.) Our current stack is comprised of Ruby, Rails, MySQL, Javascript, Redis, Memcached, Amazon Web Services, Chef, Amazon Redshift and ElasticSearch.

    We are currently working on expanding our Analytics, Launching in Global Markets, and deepening our Social Listening capabilities.
