Circle is building the all-in-one community platform for every creator and brand in the world: think “Shopify for creator/brand-led communities”. We make it really easy for creators and brands to bring their discussions, courses, members, and content all into one place. We have big dreams for where to take our platform, and we'd love to have you on this journey with us.
A quick backstory
Circle's founders are ex-Teachable ($250m exit in March 2020) and ex-Gumroad — two notable creator platforms that have helped creators earn over $1 billion in revenue for their brands. Sid and Andrew joined Teachable when they were at $50k ARR, and helped them scale to over $25m ARR in their time there.
- Sid Yadav (CEO) was Teachable's first designer, and then the VP of Product.
- Andrew Guttormsen was Teachable's VP of Growth, responsible for Teachable's growth engine.
- Rudy Santino has 20+ years experience as a designer, and spent time at Teachable + Gumroad working closely with dozens of top creators.
We've raised ~$30m from Tiger Global, Notation Capital, Box Group, Harry Stebbings, Todd Goldberg, Scott Belsky (CPO, Adobe), Jason Warner (CTO, Github), Dharmesh Shah (CTO Hubspot), and the founders or CEOs of Zapier, Superhuman, Teachable, Gumroad, ConvertKit, Morning Brew, Rent the Runway, Codecademy, Front, and ProductHunt.
We’re a fully remote, international team 🗺️
Circle is a team of around 100 (and growing!) based in countries all over the world. We meet twice per year for a company retreat at the most beautiful places we can find. Here are some photos from our recent retreat to Cancun, Mexico (February, 2023) 😎🌴

Values that guide us
💻 We trust in autonomy
We’re building a company in which team members set their own quality bar, take pride in their workmanship, and are trusted to do their life's best work without supervision.
📈 We see work as positive sum
We believe that shipping software is a positive sum endeavor; there are no winners and losers at Circle. No bureaucracy and paper pushing. No interpersonal scorecards. We play together as a team, and we win as a team, and we're working really hard to keep it that way.
🏃🏽♀️ We believe this is a marathon, not a sprint
Building a meaningful company that has a massive impact takes time. We plan to run to the last mile, and do it with great care for health and wellbeing. As important as work is to us, it isn't everything.
💪🏽 We do our best to live by these values
It's easy to say these words, but it's hard to live by them. We make it a real point to try!
