Engineering Team: At Snapchat, we've been able to accomplish an enormous amount with 25 engineers. Our users send over 700M snaps/day, making it one of the most-used apps in the world. Our Stories feature is also amassing over 500 million views per day. Check out our latest update Snapchat Here (May 1st): http://tinyurl.com/SnapchatHERE Product: Experience a unique way to share life with friends. Snap a photo or a video, add a caption, and send it to a friend (or maybe a few). They'll view it, laugh, and then the snap disappears from the screen - unless your friend takes a screenshot! The image might be a little grainy, and you may not look your best, but that's the point. It's about the moment, a connection between friends, and not just a pretty picture. The allure of fleeting messages reminds us about the beauty of friendship - we don't need a reason to stay in touch. Give it a try, share a moment, and enjoy the lightness of being! Read more
