Advertising doesn’t know what you want, but your friends do. And their recommendations are more welcomed than any advertising algorithms out there.

This is the future, and we’re at the very forefront of this trend. This inspires us to take a holistic approach to each eCommerce brand we work with; study their customers and then integrate our referral and loyalty programs seamlessly to create an enhanced user experience; ultimately, instilling long-term brand affinity. Customers are the heartbeat of any brand, let’s give them something to talk about.

The History



Talkable was founded in Berkeley, California as the first referral program software provider by Ruby on Rails developers and serial entrepreneurs Allan Grant, Jeff Yee, and Nori Yoshida. Within a week of launching, Talkable had already been integrated into several online stores across the US.


Completed & backed by Y Combinator

After successfully completing Y Combinator in 2011, HQ moved to San Francisco, California, and became a hot topic among investors. The founding team quickly expanded to include Dominic Coryell and Bradley Kam in the US, and Bogdan Gusiev in Ukraine.


Established office #2 in Kyiv, Ukraine

This team defined the values that make Talkable what it is today: quality in everything, focus on the long-terms, and stability to drive customer value.


Go Ahead Ventures invests in growth

In 2017, Talkable attracted $2M from Go Ahead Ventures to support multi-product development and overall organizational growth.


Adds Loyalty solution to suite

Talkable remains a key innovator in advocacy and loyalty marketing. With 2 offices, 80+ employees, and 250+ clients around the globe, Talkable is positioned to enhance on-site experiences for the world’s top eCommerce brands.

Changing the Way Consumers Shop Online

We are on a mission to change the way consumers shop online. Gone are the days of multiple popups and one-size-fits-all approaches to marketing onsite. Today’s consumer expects an individualized shopping experience that’s tailored to their needs and wants.

Talkable’s mission is to do exactly that: create a curated customer experience that allows shoppers to discover new products and services and spread the word, ultimately creating powerful brand advocates.

In order to deliver upon this mission, Talkable has banded together a team of creative, dedicated and warm individuals who are creating a transparent, welcoming, and inclusive environment for our colleagues and customers. We believe that our job is to serve our customers first and foremost and we encourage everyone to share their ideas and help to make Talkable the best company it can possibly be.
