Get to know Knodes
Knodes is a powerful API that takes a users’ social data — not just check-ins, not just likes, but actual conversations — and analyzes that data to map a view of a users’ world. Which people are relative to what topics? How close is one user to everyone else in her network? How is it all actually related?
Our team wants to make the entire web more personal and better connected using social data to make every application smarter. We are hiring now.
Ron J. Williams
Ron J aka @ronjdub is the CEO and Co-founder. He loves tackling big problems with smart people. Hes a Brooklyn native, active mentor, speaker and comedy lover. He reps for education reform, loves speed (motorcycles, snowboarding) and can hold his own in a cypher. He brunches HARD. He thinks he invented the word consistify. Feel free to say hi on Twitter or email or invite yourself to #whiskeyfriday.
John aka @johnnygoods is the CTO & Co-Founder. He builds stuff that makes lives better. Because he wears glasses, he usually builds that stuff with a computer. Sometimes he builds that stuff in a kitchen with fire. Brooklyn-born but variously raised, John is made for startups even though he used to work for the Man. While he digs connecting people and can code up some mean enterprise software, he is secretly saving up to train to compete on Iron Chef. He DEFINITELY coined the term BDAAS (pronounced Bad Ass)…Big Data as a Service.
Ariel aka @figure1 is known around the office as The Voice. She loves helping people tell their stories - sometimes in pictures, sometimes in words - usually on the internets. She adores all things art, and can often be found in one of the many museums around Manhattan, Mixeling it up, obsessively curating, or drawing portraits in her drawing box. She also thinks walking is awesome, and once walked 800 miles across Spain.
Omer aka @omeryariv started programming for the web back when using <blink> was still considered appropriate. Since then, he climbed the Himalayas, was an extra in three Bollywood movies, innocently lived for a while in the red light district of Osaka, and emigrated from Israel to New York, where he refuses to eat the local hummus (because he knows what real hummus tastes like). He’s also built a ton of web applications, most of them without resorting to <blink>.
