About Us

Zoobean's flagship products help people achieve reading goals by tracking reading and participating in reading challenges. Over ten million readers use our platform, Beanstack, to track their reading, earn incentives, and stay motivated to read. We serve over 10,000 public library and school clients in the United States, Canada, Australia, and beyond.

Our Shark Tank appearance brought us Mark Cuban as an investor. We have since picked up Kapor Capital, Militello Capital, AlphaLab Gear, RevUp Capital, and the AT&T Aspire Accelerator as believers and backers of our cause. Our customers include the Los Angeles Public Library, Toronto Public Library, Orange County Public Schools, and the Hawaii Department of Education.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We believe diversity breeds innovation. We're building a product that helps librarians, educators, and families everywhere, and to do that well, we need a workforce representative of the population we serve. We are actively looking to add members to our team who will bring diverse backgrounds, new perspectives, and a willingness to challenge us to improve the work we do every day.

From the Heart

At Zoobean, we live out three core values that are represented in our logo:

  • Love: We are passionate about our work and give everything we can to our customers, investors, and each other.
  • Inclusion: Our company grew out of a calling to help children and families see themselves in the books they read. That same commitment to diversity runs through all we do and allows us to express ourselves while feeling a sense of belonging to a larger community.
  • Awesomeness: This one speaks for itself.

Come work with us if this hits you in the heart and mind.
