Company description
CastTV is working to build the web’s best video search engine. CastTV lets users find all their favorite online videos, from TV shows to movies to the latest celebrity, sports, news, and viral videos. Our proprietary technology addresses two main video search challenges: finding and cataloguing videos from the web and delivering relevant video results to users. Our goal is to index every video online and provide the best experience for finding and discovering these videos.

We’re funded by DFJ, Ron Conway, and Marc Andreessen and our smart, experienced team is advised by Rajeev Motwani and other notable industry veterans. Our founders are Stanford alums who sold their previous company to Oracle. We are hiring entrepreneurial folks looking to make an impact and help build an amazing product. CastTV is based in the SoMa neighborhood of San Francisco, CA.

Business model
CastTV licenses our video search technology to customers. Our own video search site (available later this year) will be ad-supported.
Competitive advantage
There are significant technical challenges associated with video search, including crawling and indexing the videos and returning relevant results to user queries. CastTV has developed unique and automated technology to address these challenges.
