We visited Jodel’s Office in Berlin.

Have a look inside Jodel’s office, see the team and their startup office.

What is Jodel? Jodel App is designed mainly for college & university students. Members can post news, and the community can vote, which of these news are worth to talk about on campus. These “Jodels” (Posts) can be down or up voted by the community.

‘The hyperlocal app’ Jodel is a social media application for anonymous messaging developed for mobile phones. Founded by Alessio Borgemeyer in October 2014 the company is based in Berlin.

Core Business

Communicating with other people you could meet just around the corner is what Jodel is aiming for. The social media application for messaging allows to publish anonymous posts which are visible for other users within a radius of 10 kilometres.

A post can be a photo as well as a text message with a limited length. Every post can be commented and rated by other users.

Core features of the app are the local aspect as well as the fact that there are no public profiles. In the meantime, Jodel has introduced channels that do not only filter content on a location-specific basis but also by interests. To upload a post, no registration is required. Public profiles do not exist. 

The service is available in three different languages: German, English and French. Using the app is free of charge.

Though just for two enterprises, Sky Deutschland and Spotify, the company has started to place advertising. Yet it is also clearly stated that a user may not see more than one advertisement in 24 hours. For the future, more brands will follow.
