SaneBox filters out and summarizes unimportant emails - not spam, but legitimate messages that just don't need to interrupt your day and can be processed in bulk. We do lots of other things to help you deal with email. You can learn about them here.
Because we read these posts and were immediately transformed with purpose:

Remember when "You've got mail" was something to look forward to? Today we dread opening our Inbox. An average person spends 13 hours a week just reading and processing email. We think that's crazy, so we decided to build SaneBox to help you fall in love with email again. We believe that email isn't going anywhere, and we want SaneBox to be the must-have tool for anyone overloaded with emails. (Update: looks like we're succeeding - 43% of people who receive 60 or more emails per day decide to stay with us after the free trial!)
Stuart, Dmitri, Nick, Peter, Jason, Garvin and Shirley work on this full time. A few more wonderful folks help once in a while.
We've worked together and apart at the following places:
Our global headquarters is in the heart of Boston's fashion district at:
211 Newbury Street, #3Boston, MA 02116
Our LA office is located on the somewhat gritty Venice Beach at:
1600 Main StVenice, CA 90291
OAhhh.... now this is the magic. Can't tell you everything or it would ruin the surprise, but in a nutshell SaneBox analyzes the relationship trees in your email history (without ever looking at the content of emails) and decides what's important to you. Best of all, SaneBox works wherever you currently read your email - on any email service device or client, with nothing to download or install.
Our computing is done on HP and CISCO blade systems housed in a hardened colocation facility in Wisconsin. We develop on Mac Pros with 30" studio displays, and a couple of Mac Airs. The production software is Unix, Ruby on Rails, jquery, mysql, capistrano, puppet, and monit (not necessarily in that order). We're always looking for great engineers, so if you're familiar with these systems, and would like to work on solving one of the biggest problems in the modern workplace, send us your resume.
