Tango instantly turns what you know into step-by-step guidance—no videos, meetings, or screen shares required.

With Guidance, you can:

⚡ Turn automatically captured how-to guides into on-screen, interactive walkthroughs

✅ Give step-by-step guidance asynchronously, with built-in context and curated insights

🎉 Minimize interruptions so you—and everyone around you—can stay in flow and get sh*t done

As a product-led series A startup, Tango powers processes for 500,000+ team members at companies like IBM, Salesforce, Netflix, Nike, and Verizon. We’re backed by leading venture capital firms, including Tiger Global, Slack Fund, Salesforce Ventures, Atlassian Ventures, Wing VC, General Catalyst, and GSV Ventures. And we’re growing fast.

We’re building a future of work where processes are easier to document and faster to follow. Where teams can give and get the right answers, in the right place, at the right time. Where to-do lists are easier to tackle—making space for the work that matters most.
