News from All Sides


To deliver the world's quality information to the people who need it!

We've developed an ML-driven news aggregation app, focused on personalized discovery over personalization. We work on challenging and critical problems while focusing to consistently deliver accurate, quality news.

As Spotify did for music and Hulu did for TV, SmartNews is creating an entirely new model for the news industry. Our Google-sized mission is to evaluate (in real-time) what makes a quality story and deliver the stories that matter to people who need it.


For the Common Good 

There is a strong focus at SmartNews to contribute to society by delivering quality, accurate, and up-to-date information. We strive to make a direct commitment to building a better world and helping the content ecosystem thrive.

Be the Owner

SmartNews employees take ownership in not only solving essential problems, but stepping up to accept challenges that we may face in doing so. Our team acts with responsibility to contribute to our mission.

Have Appreciation

At SmartNews, we believe that it is important to recognize our fellow team members in their successes. Having appreciation for the effort others put forward helps to establish a more collaborative culture that promotes creative problem-solving and teamwork. We work hard to understand diverse perspectives of both our users and partners.

Diversity & Inclusion

At SmartNews, we strive to promote democracy and empathy all over the world.

In order to achieve this lofty goal, we need to ensure that we're fostering diverse viewpoints and experiences within SmartNews that are reflective of the users we serve. Our team members come from many diverse backgrounds and we encourage everyone to share their own personal experiences in fostering an inclusive environment where we can learn from one another.


SmartNews promotes culture and team building in many different ways. From office-wide boba runs, game nights, happy hours, and more, SmartNews culture encourages collaboration and an appreciation for all its members!

"I love working at SmartNews, because it embodies such a collaborative culture. Everyone here is so encouraging and truly wants to band together in order to contribute to our mission, which fosters a "togetherness" I have never felt at any company before."
