    What We Do

    Affinity is on a mission to help everyone in the world succeed by cultivating and fully harnessing the power of their network.

    Relationships are the backbone of the world's most valuable industries — from sales and business development to finance and philanthropy. But the tools used today to manage those relationships are broken. Actionable context remains locked away in the email and calendar streams of coworkers and colleagues, and no one has the time to analyze or organize this exponentially growing trail of data.

    Affinity ingests and analyzes this massive communications data stream using AI and NLP, and uses it to power our platform, which helps our customers understand, manage, and leverage their networks more effectively. Our product expands and evolves the traditional CRM, instantly surfacing the data every team needs to curate and grow its network, unlock crucial introductions, and build healthy pipelines.

    Why Join Us?

    We have a world-class team.

    Our founders include Joe Lonsdale (founder of Palantir) and computer scientists from Stanford. Our engineering team has worked at great companies (Google, Facebook, Quora, Dropbox, Stripe, Airbnb, Palantir, etc), and our design advisor is Joshua Goldenberg (Head of Design at Slack).

    We're working with lots of stellar customers and growing fast.

    In a year and a half, we've gone from zero to 400+ paying customers, including many of the best names in venture capital, private equity, corporate development, real estate, agencies, and more. We've grown revenue ~600% over the past year and have big plans for growth in the coming years — we'd love your help in tackling them.

    We're solving a planet-scale problem.

    Relationships are the lifeblood of every major industry and form the foundation for almost every successful career. Through executing on our vision, we have the potential to create immense value for companies and people around the world.

    Our Core Values

    Everything we do at Affinity - from our interview process to our product decisions - is driven by our values.

    We care personally for each other.

    We recognize that our teammates are people who have strengths, weaknesses, dreams & life stories. We take the time to better understand where they come from, and know that this makes for better collaboration on the difficult problems we have to solve. We also actively express our appreciation for the hard work our teammates do.

    We are playmakers.

    We are team players who empower our teammates to do their best work. We are not afraid to step outside the scope of our roles if it will help the team win.

    We take pride in what we do.

    We care deeply about delivering exceptional work and we take ownership over our results. This makes us an extremely passionate, driven, and resilient group. For all of us here at Affinity, our work is not just a means to an end: we derive tremendous fulfillment from putting our very best into our work.

    We are radically open-minded.

    We value ideas over titles. We believe that the best ideas can come from anywhere, both within and outside our company. This means we’re unafraid to speak our thoughts, seek help from peers, and receive feedback with an open mind. Seeking truth is our ultimate goal - and we’re ready to change our minds based on data.

    We are obsessed with learning.

    We are dedicated learners and teachers. We constantly ask ourselves how we can do things better and are never satisfied. As both individuals and a company, we are always seeking new avenues to improve ourselves and to achieve our goals.
