Help Pingdom change the world

PingdomIt would be easy for us to borrow a phrase from Steve Jobs and ask you: “Do you want to sell sugared water for the rest of your life? Or do you want to come with me and change the world?” And the thing is, we’d be very serious about it. Chances are you don’t sell sugared water, but the essence of the question is still valid: do you want to join Pingdom and change the world?

Because, you see, we believe this with passion, that we’re building some of the best online services anywhere, which are used by individuals and businesses in all four corners of the world.  Our quest is to make the web a faster and safer place for all, and we need the best people to join us to make that a reality.

PingdomWe’ve been working on a brand new API for Pingdom and would now like to work together with a selection of beta testers to make sure it’s the best it can be before we release it into the wild.

You will see a lot happening with Pingdom over the coming year.

PaypalPaypal has been around since 1998 (eBay bought it in 2002), which is a small eternity in internet time. By now it’s easily the most established online payment solution, so it should be in a great position to benefit from our general tendency to increasingly buy and pay for things online.

And something drastic happened about a year ago. Just look at how traffic to Paypal.com has been growing.
