What We’re Building + Who We Work With:
Hustle enables organizations to run large-scale text messaging campaigns by empowering their team members and volunteers to efficiently have thousands of personal 1-to-1 conversations.
Conversations driven by our platform are geared towards driving measurable meaningful outcomes such as voter turnout, event attendance, or dollars raised for clients such as Planned Parenthood, Sierra Club, the DNC, large non-profits, unions, and universities, as well as several 2020 presidential candidates.
To do that our team works on building systems that scale up 100x in a matter of hours and which are able to send 100 million messages a day. Our clients bursty appetite for Hustle requires that we are able to scale up and down two orders of magnitude quickly and efficiently at the drop of a dime so that they can reach voters, volunteers, benefactors, or attendees at the right time, with the right message, sent by the right person!
