About Us

Life360 is the largest family service in the world with over 50 Million registered users. Our mission is to help families feel together even when they are apart. We build technology that extends the realm of safety beyond the front door so that families feel safe and synchronized no matter where they are.

In an ever mobile world that has unleashed a torrent of efficiencies in many aspects of our social and working lives, families have been an afterthought. At Life360, we appreciate the potential of technology to reinforce our most cherished relationships and believe that to succeed we must fortify the dynamics that make families strong. It starts with location as the foundation that helps families find their rhythm, liberating them from the tyranny of minor worries and the mundane task of chasing or finding their loved ones.  On top of location, we are building services that will augment family life in new and exciting ways, from ensuring loved ones are safe when they’re behind the wheel to providing confidence when children are out late, from simplifying coordination of family activities to securing their home.

Drawing on a decade of experience serving families and our expertise in location, our service recreates the serenity of knowing that those closest to you are safe, even when you’re far apart. Life360 is peace of mind that you can carry with you throughout the day.

We’ve raised over $75m in funding from Google, Facebook, BMW, ADT and other venture investors.  The service is available on iOS, Android and Echo devices around the world in more than 15 languages.

Now is the perfect time to join our 75 person strong team based in San Francisco. Not only is our user base growing at a fast pace, our upcoming product releases are some of the most exciting in the company’s history.
