I know it’s hard to believe right now, but it actually gets warm in Chicago sometimes. And during those warm months I try to play as much beach volleyball as I possibly can. There’s a group of guys that I often play with, and we organize via text message. The problem is that one guy controls the text list, and it’s always unclear how many people are going to show up. I actually think that e-mail is a much better alternative, but for some reason people love SMS, which is a terrible platform for group messaging. At least it was. GroupMe is a New York, NY based startup that “lets you effortlessly group text with the people in your life that are important to you.” It’s a free service that works on any phone (ok probably not a rotary phone).

Mass texting just doesn’t work well. Here’s a perfect example. You get a “Happy Thanksgiving” text from a not-so-close friend. You send a thoughtful reply, and then realize that the person just mass texted his or her entire address book. Now you feel stupid. GroupMe won’t stop that, but it brings more intimacy to the text message—you know who’s sending and who’s receiving. If texts aren’t doing the job, you can hit a button and initiate a conference call with the group. GroupMe’s business model seems a bit unclear right now, but it sounds like they plan on making money through some sort of sponsorship/advertising model. I could also see their offering premium paid services—for businesses perhaps. Still, GroupMe is one of the hottest startups in New York City right now, which is why you might want to consider working for them. Their Jobs page has four positions posted right now: Analytics Engineer, Android Developer, Application Engineer, and Interaction Designer. And if none of those sound good to you, then you can tell them about how you think you’d fit in. Just make sure you’ve started using GroupMe before you apply.
