Hike is a social & content platform focused on privacy, expression and bite-sized content. A place where you can privately chat with friends and also consume snackable content like news, cricket scores, fun stuff, entertainment etc, catered specifically for the Indian audience.
Hike is Delhi HQ, launched on 12/12/12 and acquired a user base of over 100 million since then. 90% of Hike users are between the age of 15-24 years and 95% of its users are based in India. On average, Hike’s highly engaged user base transacts over 40 billion messages per month and spends over 24 min per user per day on the platform. Some of our top Operating Values:
Be Customer Obsessed:
Always work backward from what the customers want. Talking to customers, for example, is a great way to get out of our heads and put all the theories running wild in our minds to test.
Obsess to Simplify:
Obsess over this. Simplify, simplify, simplify. This is key to shipping things out there quickly. This allows us to keep the speed of iteration incredibly fast and users also get quicker updates at high quality.
Hustle. Progress > Perfection:
Just keep moving and aim for the 1% improvements every day. Hustle.
Our Mission is to reduce people’s dependency on the keyboard. In a country like India with 20+ languages and dialects, the input is a big problem.
