About Us

hello connects you with people and content around your passions. Enjoy an unexpected experience that lets you show the world who you are, express what you love, and create meaningful connections.

Hello Network, Inc. was founded by well-known social pioneer Orkut Buyukkokten (creator of orkut.com) and a small group of ex-Google engineers. After witnessing the evolution of social networking over the past 16 years, Orkut was inspired to help bring people together around their common interests -- a vision that changes how the world does social.

Headquartered in San Francisco and with a development office in Mountain View, California, the company has grown to a team of 20. If you are interested in helping to build hello -- either technically or as a community leader please check out our current jobs.

hello is available on both iOS and Android. Check if the app is available in your country.

We'd like to thank everyone who has participated in hello so far, and we are excited to see where the hello community leads us. If you're a member of the press and want additional information please contact press@hello.com.

See you inside,
the hello team
