Our mission is to make every company in the world customer-centric.

Many companies receive a staggering amount of customer feedback every day – so much that no human could fully comprehend it all by hand. Product managers either attempt to manually scan through thousands of reviews and customer conversations or, surprisingly often, this information is just never used. Spiral, on the other hand, scans all customer feedback in minutes using AI and provides product managers and customer support leaders with specific problems that directly impact customers. This enables businesses to fix the problems that matter most, creating a better product and a happier customer.

Founded by two former Amazonians, Spiral takes customer obsession to the next level. It provides companies with a scalable solution that shows the true north of what customers want, boosting the company’s revenue and customer satisfaction. We are a Techstars-backed company that raised $3.8M to date from world-class investors such as Trilogy Equity Partners, Bezos Expeditions, Techstars, Amazon Alexa Fund, Alumni Ventures Group, and others.

If you are driven, aren’t scared to own a large component in our stack, are excited to experiment with crazy ideas, learn quickly, and would love to join a promising fast-growing startup, come join us at Spiral to help thousands of companies make sense of their customer feedback!
