We don't take ourselves too seriously

Some of us have four legs, some of us live on the west coast, some of us have never seen Seinfeld, and some of us are passionate mayonnaise haters (they’re wrong—mayo is just misused and misunderstood). But all of us believe that you can do your best work when you don’t have to spend your day searching for information.

How Guru got started

(and where we're going)

Before the days of series A and series B and hundreds of employees spread across offices on each coast, Rick Nucci and Mitch Stewart set out with one goal in mind: to create a product that would give people the knowledge they needed to do their jobs.

Like all good SAAS origin stories, their dream was born out of an experience they lived while scaling their first company, Boomi, feeling the pain of a growing enterprise that didn’t have a way to easily share important information. A few long nights later they had their first version of Guru: A Chrome extension that worked exclusively with Gmail.

Fast forward a few years, iterations, product updates, and gray hairs and we have a product that is used (and loved) by some of the biggest companies in the world. Guru has been the secret sauce for many category leaders. Watching companies like Spotify and Zoom build and sell their products with the help of Guru has confirmed Rick and Mitch’s suspicion: You can do amazing things when the knowledge you need to do your job is "right there." 😉
