    Emissary was founded by ex-Googler David Hammer. After years of working under Sundar Pichai, Marissa Mayer and Susan Wojcicki and creating multi-billion dollar products like DoubleClick Bid Manager, David decided to strike out on his own.

    He founded Emissary to share and spread the most important knowledge -- unwritten knowledge.

    Every organization hungers for access to information that lives beyond their walls, but they don’t know how to get it. Likewise, millions of people have valuable knowledge that they’re not doing anything with. Emissary’s mission is to connect the two. We want to transform the way the world works by empowering people to share their experience.

    We started by building an amazing community of people who have deep, tacit knowledge of the organizations they’ve worked at. We screen these Emissaries by hand and interview them extensively; more than 5,000 have joined our platform to date.
