So far Amy and I have yet to receive a single Christmas/Holiday card. I’d like to blame it on the fact that we moved a few months ago, but I fear that we may not be as popular as I had previously thought. The reason that I can’t blame the move is that we made sure to update our address with the USPS. The most shocking thing about forwarding your mail is how easy it is to do. That’s why it’s interesting that Updater uses USPS change of address as the free part of their freemium model. It’s smart. The New York, NY based company offers a slightly slicker way to do something that you can do quite easily on your own, and then they use that as an opportunity to sell you a product that helps you will all kinds of other change of address issues.

Here’s an Update

There’s no doubt that updating your address is a huge pain. It’s really too bad that we can’t just have a single place where we update our address and all databases that we have opted in to will update from that. My guess is that this what Updater would like to eventually build, but for now they’re focused on a more basic solution. Beyond mail forwarding, they also help you update your address with merchants, schedule cable and utilities appointments, and get deals on moving related services. They’ll also help you with registering to vote, updating your vehicle registration, and all of the other government related services that require a current address. It’s all stuff that you can do on your own, but it’s nice to have an experienced helping hand. If you want to help make people’s moves easier (and probably work on something much bigger eventually), visit Updater’s Careers page. Right now all of their full-time positions are technical (DevOps Engineer, QA & Automation Engineer, Web Designer & Developer) or experience, but there’s also a BizOps internship that looks really interesting
