At Conference Hound, our goal is to create products that make it _easy_ for people to discover and connect with conferences, including the activities related to and surrounding conferences.

We care less about your resume and years of employment and more about your competency, attitude, and cultural fit. It's much more important for us to have the right people join us, than it is to have the most experienced. It's a fast-paced startup environment and we work really hard, but we never forget to keep it fun!
