The Dawdle Mission
To make it moronically easy for gamers to buy and sell their video games, systems, and accessories online. There's no reason for people to take less money than their stuff is worth from a massive game chain or fight with someone across the country over ten bucks.
We make it safe and easy by handling all payments, having a 100% money back guarantee, no listing fees, and the quickest and easiest listing tools around. We don't favor our big sellers over our small ones. We have a level playing field where everyone can play.
Our online marketplace platform uses our patent-pending Intelligent Matching Engine to match buyers and sellers. In short, it's eHarmony for e-commerce. We don't have auctions, so there are no snipers, and we don't have back-and-forth offers between buyers and sellers haggling over pennies. We make it quick and easy for people to buy in sell. Get your game or get your cash quick.
Our team is made of veterans of venture capital and web application development shops. We have experience with massive national brands and integration with third party providers. We all love to game, although everyone has a different favorite next-generation platform. Two of us like drinking, and one doesn't. Only one of us is engaged. We all love Chicago.
Life at Dawdle
Everyone works from home, but we have an office in the West Loop where we use the conference room every once in a while. We pay rent in beer. We are in constant contact over IM and Skype to keep each other motivated.
