About Konsus

Konsus is The Fastest Online Create Service. The company was founded in 2015 and was part of the Y Combinator Winter 2016 program. Konsus raised $1.7M in a seed round in 2016 from Sam Altman (lead investor), Slack Fund, Paul Buchheit, John Collison and other Silicon Valley investors. Konsus grows 10-20% monthly, is cash flow positive, and has a team of 16 full-time people and ~100 freelancers on the platform with Konsus as their main source of income. Konsus is a partly decentralized company: everyone on the platform is working remotely and half of the core team have remote locations. We are currently building an ‘on-location’ engineering team in Oslo, but we are supportive of flexible arrangements. Konsus has 3200+ customers, with most of the recurring business coming from ~100 or so large enterprise clients. Konsus is led by Fredrik Thomassen (CEO), Jing Kjeldsen (CTO), and Haakon Heir (COO).
