Bunch is building the home for gamers in the metaverse where they party up and jump into their favorite games. Our developer platform allows game developers to integrate our party functionality into their own games while tapping into the community of players on Bunch.
Our team is based in New York, San Francisco, Toronto and Waterloo and comes from companies like Meta, Google and Kik, bringing together the DNA of building large scale social networks, developer platforms, games and blockchain applications. Founded in 2017, Bunch is backed by notable investors like General Catalyst, LVP - and many of the largest game companies including Electronic Arts, Take-Two Interactive, Ubisoft, Krafton, Supercell, Riot, Miniclip, Tencent and COLOPL.
We are looking to grow our team with folks who are passionate about building the home for gamers in the Metaverse; and bringing people closer together through the games they love! Click here for open roles
Bunch 2.0 pivots to a social gaming metaverse
Did you miss a session from GamesBeat's latest event? Head over to the GamesBeat & Facebook Gaming Summit & GamesBeat Summit: Into the Metaverse 2 On Demand page here. Bunch has pivoted from a social layer for games to a more expansive metaverse that aims to keep players coming back for longer times and to engage in commerce and more activities.
Is blockchain required for the metaverse?
People Selcuk Atli is CEO of mobile social games platform Bunch. Many view blockchain technology as one of the key building blocks of the metaverse. While many others are against the use of NFTs and blockchain in gaming, I think it's important to ask the question, "Is blockchain a required foundation for the metaverse?"

At Bunch we live our culture through the decisions we make every day. We are looking for team mates who identify with these values - and can add to the culture of our growing team.
WHAT WOULD HAN SOLO DO We are bold in the face of uncertainty and have bias for action. We walk through walls and get things done while doing good for our users and community.
INFORMED CAPTAINS We hire great people, and trust them to make well informed decisions, with speed by gathering input from our team, users, data and the market.
POSITIVE CANDOR We consider feedback a gift, and receive it with good intent. We offer clear, actionable and frequent feedback with intent to help each other and the company.
WE ROW TOGETHER We execute decisively and in the same direction. We understand It's ok to move together in the wrong direction (briefly) because we can learn fast and course correct.
HAVE FUN WITH IT We work hard, and like to have fun along the way. We take our work very seriously; but we don't take ourselves too seriously.
MARATHON, NOT A SPRINT We understand it takes a long time to build enduring companies. That’s why we take care of ourselves physically and mentally so we can do our best work.
