Spun out of MIT, co-founders Karan Kashyap, CEO, and Matt McEachern, CTO, had a vision about how the world interacts with AI technology. Four years later, they’ve built a product to serve people with a top-notch team.
Just a year ago on Posh’s third birthday, our employee count was shy of 30. Today, we have 70+ employees with no plan of slowing down! Furthermore, in 2021, Posh was serving 32 clients, which has now grown to 50+ clients in just a few more months!
Even more exciting, in the past year Posh's bots have handled 5.5 million chats across all products. It's been an exciting year with more growth, collaboration and of course, serving our phenomenal clients across the financial institution industry.
“It's rare that a company can align a fantastic challenge with a meaningful purpose. Rarer yet, tackling that challenge and executing on that purpose with supremely passionate, friendly, and intelligent teammates,” Matt said. “We've got a lot to be thankful for.”
“When we started the company a few years ago out of MIT, we had a vision that conversational AI would not only transform financial services but fundamentally change how humans interact with computers,” Karan said. “Humanity is still in the early days of conversational AI, and that excites the hell out of us because there is so much opportunity to create. We're already adding meaningful value to the financial institutions we're fortunate to partner with, and this value will only compound as we continue to build.”
In honor of Posh’s birthday, here are some fun facts about where Matt and Karan started to where we are now.
“Stubborn on vision. Flexible on details. We're betting on a future in which Conversational AI is a primary mode of human-computer interaction,” Matt said. “How will that future look, precisely? Well, that's for our current and future teammates to determine. We're riding the bleeding edge of this space.”
“We're thankful for the dozens of passionate Poshies who've joined us on our mission so far: they believe in the future of conversational AI and are dedicated to delivering value to our partners,” Karan said. “Together, we're helping to advance not only the financial services industry but also the field of conversational AI.”
Happy Birthday, Posh!
