Mission and Values
Chord's co-founders, CEO Bryan Mahoney and Chairman & COO Henry Davis, were former Glossier executives and D2C founders who witnessed first-hand the challenges entrepreneurs faced launching brands into an increasingly competitive market. They developed Chord to help entrepreneurs avoid the heavy and disproportionately expensive technical lift required to create unique customer experiences, the challenges of accessing and using proprietary data, and the ever-increasing cost of customer acquisition and retention.Chord offers a highly cost-effective way to move to headless commerce technology, which gives fast-growing D2C brands unrivaled page speed and flexibility to deliver truly differentiated customer experiences. By building directly on a platform that integrates with third-party products via APIs, D2C companies can also future-proof their technology. Meanwhile, Chord's unique integrated data tools give entrepreneurs meaningful and easy access to increasingly valuable proprietary first-party data insights so they can truly understand their customers and respond to them.
We are lean but mean at 19 people. Our team is heavily concentrated in Tech with 75% of the company across Data, Product and Engineering. We plan to grow slow and steady this year and expect to be around 40 people at year’s end.

Work / Life Balance
Work/life balance is of the utmost importance to us at Chord. We believe the best treatment for burnout is preventing it entirely. Your work schedule should work for you—we trust our teammates to manage their schedules as they see fit and offer a flexible schedule and PTO policy. Our team is distributed across the US and Canada and we respect time zones.
