Who We Are


Fairygodboss is an early-stage start-up based in New York and is the largest community of professional women in the US. Our mission is to improve the workplace for women by creating transparency. We do this by creating a safe, anonymous and supportive environment for women to leave job reviews and tips about employer pay, benefits, and culture. We are on the verge of closing our next round of funding and are looking to double our product and engineering team in 2019.
