What is Fizz
Fizz is a social app that allows students to connect with their campus. Each Fizz community has a private and moderated feed of anonymous posts, authored by verified students, providing the most entertaining, relatable, and interesting conversations about student life.

Students can post questions, memes, polls, and chat with other verified students while maintaining control over their identity and privacy. Fizz communities prioritize safety, authenticity, and inclusion through community-based moderation.

Founded by two Stanford dropouts, Fizz is currently expanding to colleges across the US with a mission to redefine the “social network” in a time when legacy platforms lack authenticity and are filled with curated highlight reels.

What we’ve done
We first launched Fizz at Stanford in July 2021 and have since seen >95% of undergraduates join the app, half of which use Fizz every day. Since then, we have raised over $41 million from NEA, Owl Ventures, and Lightspeed, built a rock-solid engineering team with decades of experience at top tech companies, and expanded Fizz to be the dominant community platform at 200+ colleges.

Where we’re going
Our near term goal is to expand to all US universities by the end of the 2023-2024 academic school year. To get there, we give engineers at Fizz a lot of autonomy and ownership of our product. Some of the things you can expect to work on include:
- Designing and implementing new features from the ground up to drive app engagement
- Building scalable community moderation systems
- Using data to drive product decisions

We are open to candidates of all experience levels who are passionate about being an early employee and want to help drive our company forward.
