The Monkey Inferno: Evolution of the Code Monkey

We’re a tight-knit group working out of a funky office in SF. We dream up internet projects then put our code where our mouth is and put them out into the wild.

We’re not scared of failure; in fact we can be quite good at it. Our objective is to have fun, build something cool (and hopefully worthwhile), and, every now and then, something truly amazing.

We are all employed by Monkey Inferno Inc, the incubator. Once each project is launched it is incorporated as a sub-company and we all receive options in it. Each project has no more than two full time developers, who work side by side cranking out code. But as we receive options in all the sub-companies, everyone is motivated to help every project become a success, whether they happen to be assigned to the project or not.

This structure ensures that you don’t miss out just because you’re assigned to the crap, er, less lucky idea.

Monkey Inferno has no outside investors, we’re fully self-funded by Michael and Xochi Birch who sold Bebo to AOL in 2008 for $850m. That kind of financial security means we’re a fast-paced but low-stress workplace.
