Perka is my second startup. I was formerly the UX designer at Zenbe, an email/productivity suite that was acquired by Facebook in 2007. After the acquisition, three of us began to explore ideas for a new startup. We built and deployed a few experiments in location-based apps, one of which became Perka.
Perka is a customer loyalty platform for businesses of all sizes. Since 2011, our mobile and web apps have made millions of days a little brighter in free coffees, yoga classes, ice cream cones, and thousands of other ways of saying thanks. In October 2013, we were acquired by First Data—the world’s largest payment processor—as an independent subsidiary. www.getperka.com
