📱 Who we are
Tagg is social-branding for Gen Z. In the digital world, the more authentic your brand, the more genuine your connections. We are building and growing an environment allowing for full creative expression of oneself—no restrictions, no stigma. You should be unapologetically YOU while making friends and keeping up with trends!
This is a unique opportunity to join an early stage-startup. Be one of the first engineers on the team, building an experience that is transforming the way people connect. We’ve already made huge waves on the east coast, and now looking to scale this technology across the US and eventually worldwide!

Other notable investors/advisors include ex- CEO at Sony, Chairman at Snapchat, ex-VP of Product/Growth at Uber, ex-Head of Intl. Growth at Facebook, ex-Head of Product/Growth at Pinterest, ex-CMO at ViacomCBS and more.
