Since our inception in 2009, Foursquare has been a leading force in changing how location information enriches our real-world and digital lives. As a location intelligence company, Foursquare is comprised of two well-known consumer apps, Foursquare and Swarm, as well as thriving media and enterprise products. Our B2B offerings include Places and Pilgrim SDK (for developers), and Pinpoint and Attribution (for marketers). With more than 200 people across our offices in New York, San Francisco, and in sales offices around the globe, we’re dedicated to our trailblazing mission— informing business decisions with location intelligence. In many ways, the company is now a Machine Learning and Data Science company at its core.
