At Hearth, our mission is to radically expand our capacity to make sense of our networks. To empower teams to identify more mutuality and matched opportunities, we are building a network co-pilot that combines natural language interfaces with an elegant UI. Founded in 2022, Hearth envisions a new category of relationship-management led by AI that fundamentally augments our ability to focus on connection.

We're a small team of builders and artists based in New York City, united by a love of people, cutting-edge tech, disciplined focus, fast execution, and the creative invitation to craft with skillful care. We're driven to operate on the frontiers of machine learning and AI in a rigorous engineering environment - to deliver the next-generation of products. We believe talent is the ability to let ideas manifest themselves through you. We welcome the not knowing, the challenging tasks, the cyclic confrontation of ideas with real-world feedback. We're here to create.
