Make work simpler, efficient and more employee focused.

Haystack is today’s modern employee intranet. Our software helps companies connect their workforce by streamlining internal communications and forging employee connections.


Our Story

After spending time building products at leading technology companies like Google, Snap & PayPal, Cameron Lindsay and Haibo Zhao came together to answer the one question that had consumed them for years; How can we use software to make big companies feel smaller?

The pursuit to achieve this overall mission statement led our team to a number of other burning questions: How can we help distributed employees feel more connected to their coworkers? How can we use information accessibility to promote an inclusive culture? How can we deliver mission-critical information in a secure way? How can we give admins the ability to manage how information is presented to their employees? 

The Haystack platform is the result of our efforts. Haystack connects your company’s people, knowledge, and communication to a single, secure location. Our customers improve alignment, increase engagement, scale culture, and onboard new hires faster. We’ve raised $8M+ from world-class investors like Coatue, Greycroft, and BoxGroup as well investments from the founders of Twitter,  and more.
