Who We Are:

At Juxta Labs we work to make real life better for teens. We're a Series A funded startup working on a social mobile app that will be on everyone's phone and change the way we get together. We're funded by top–tier funds in Silicon Valley, Utah, and Los Angeles, and over 50 million people have used our apps. Our founding team has worked together for 16+ years and has had multiple exits. We're still small (18 people) so there's plenty of opportunity to become part of the family and have a major impact. Help us make something happen.
