Tumblr is a New York City start up that empowers creators and explorers. Founded by David Karp in 2007, Tumblr is now home to more than 90 million tumblelogs and 40 billion posts across a wide swath of communities and topics. From our headquarters near Union Square, our highly caffeinated engineers work in an open, positive and collaborative environment.
