Our Vision is that you can open Jodel at any time and anywhere in the world, to easily talk and connect with people around you.

How we work

The people behind Jodel are as diverse, creative and friendly as our users. We are a 60 people strong team with over 15 nationalities represented in our Berlin HQ. Each individual brings a different perspective and approach to the table - but all have the same drive and motivation to create the world’s hyperlocal community. Together, we are building the most successful social media platform in Europe, while still enjoying ourselves in this exciting journey.

Our Story

Jodel was launched in 2014. The idea of Jodel started when we realised that despite countless products in tech, there was no fast and simple way to connect with people around us.  

From the start, Jodel’s mission has been to let users instantly engage with the community around them. A focus on staying local kept content relevant. The absence of profiles allowed Jodelers to be their most authentic selves and made it faster and easier to connect with relevant people around them.
