Mission: We’re dedicated to solving the problems internet businesses face when talking to customers—by helping them better connect in authentic, human ways. Since 2011, we’ve been fundamentally changing how the industry works, influencing and replacing ...
Who are we?
We’re a team of builders, makers, and life-long learners. Humble at heart. Ambitious in application. Unified in our vision.
We’re about using our creativity to make things happen.
How do we work?
We put thought into everything we touch, because our end goal is better relationships between people and businesses. We are disciplined in our approach to making things based on needs rather than on trends. And we focus, focus, focus.
What do we value?
A sense of comfort through change. An ability to ditch old playbooks.
Of course we agree with what every other company says it values. But for us, that’s table stakes. We want to know you’re willing to adapt with us as we expand into areas and industries that have yet to be tapped.
What do we do?
We’re dedicated to solving the problems internet businesses face when talking to people by helping them better connect with their customers in organized, authentic, human ways.
Why do we do it?
At some point, we’re all customers. So we know how it feels to have a good business interaction versus a bad one. We built Intercom for ourselves as customers who expect more from companies, and as a business knowing there is realvalue in it, primarily and profitably. It’s the right thing to do overall.

In 2011, Eoghan, Des and the other cofounders were building Exceptional, a bug-tracking company. During this time, they frequented a local coffee shop, 3FE. They were envious of how Colin, the owner of 3FE, knew and engaged with his customers in a personal, authentic way, every time they came in. Exceptional had thousands of customers, but Eoghan & Des had only ever met a handful of them, and certainly didn’t know them well.
In an attempt to replicate their experience at 3FE, Eoghan & Des invented an in-app messaging tool (the first in the industry) that let them communicate with Exceptional customers while they were logged in. Because the chat tool was inside of a web app, they could send customers personalized messages based on exactly what they were doing, versus bulk emails that felt spammy and stiff.
The tool worked so well, they decided to offer it externally under the name of “Intercom”, and it took off. This tool was the beginning of Intercom: Eoghan moved to San Francisco to open the first office that year. The rest is history.
