About Banter

Banter is focused on creating culture building tools for remote teams. 

We believe that the future of work is distributed and asynchronous and we’re building tools to enable culture in that future.

Our first product is Banter bot, a chat bot that sparks spontaneous group conversations with ice breakers that develop trust, sharing, and friendship in remote teams.

Made by this guy

Hey, I’m Raymond. 

I’m the sole founder, designer, product, marketing, and support team at Banter.  

I’m based in Toronto, Canada 🍁.

Making friends at work, work

I’ve worked at a bunch of high growth startups in the last 10 years.

As teams moved remote, I noticed that culture took a big hit, the opportunities for teams to bond just weren’t there anymore.

A lot of my work relationships were forged in the everyday, chatting about random stuff (is 🍍on 🍕 acceptable?) at the proverbial and literal watercooler.

Banter bot is my way to bring that spontaneous dynamic to remote teams. 

Holla at me 🙋🏻‍♂️

I’m working on Banter a bunch, making product decisions, designing new features, answering support questions, and writing the ice breakers. 

I’m working in public. Check out my Blog and Twitter. Or connect with me on Linkedin.
