rmbr is a funware application that combines the best of social multiplayer games and digital photography to maximize fun, stickiness and virtual item revenue. Unlike current photosharing sites, rmbr is designed to be easy and engaging: it works with existing social networks, automatically synchronizes your photos while ensuring the best ones come to the surface, and allows you to instantly message, doodle and play photo games with your friends and family. The company was founded in April 2007 by veteran startup technologist Christopher Cunningham and online game pioneer Gabe Zichermann. rmbr is headquartered in New York City.
Gabe Zichermann (CEO/Co-Founder):
Gabe Zichermann developed the concept for rmbr in early 2007 after realizing that he had stopped enjoying the process of dealing with his friends' online photos, and that a game-centric approach might fix the problem. Gabe is a ten-year games industry veteran, having previously worked for CMP Media on the Game Developers Conference, Gamasutra and Game Developer magazine, as well as helping to launch and guide Trymedia Systems from start to sale as its head of Strategy and Marketing. Prior to joining the games industry, Zichermann held roles with Cisco, CheckPoint Software and Nortel/Bay Networks. Now residing in New York City, Gabe frequently muses about why the city that has everything can't make a good burrito.
