Culture & Jobs at Near The Box

Working at Near The Box

Our story begins well before 2012, when we were officially founded. It started with our founder, Adi Gandra, doing software development projects and coding as a high schooler back in the early 2000s. Our mission was established early -- he wanted to help build products that truly make a difference in people's lives. After doing extensive customer and partner discovery in 2019, what we heard and continue to hear is that a void exists in terms of technical partners who genuinely care about the long-term success of the non-technical founders they work with. That non-technical founders with domain expertise, vision, and some traction don't know where to turn or what to do when it came time to 'build'. That's where we come in -- we partner with founders/founding teams to strategy, design, and develop custom web platforms. We believe in the power of startup communities and lean in with a give-first mindset to be a resource to founders. It's hard enough that you're climbing Mt. Everest, if we can't help you ascend, we may know someone else that can or offer a map along the way.
