Who is Bytedance？
Bytedance is a technology company operating a range of content platforms that enable people to connect with, consume, and create content through machine learning technology.
Driven by a passion to connect people with information, Yiming Zhang founded Bytedance in 2012. With a natural instinct for new technologies and social trends, Yiming saw an opportunity to combine the power of artificial intelligence with the growth of mobile internet to revolutionize the way people consume and receive information. This made Bytedance one of the first companies to launch mobile-first products powered by machine learning technology.
Our vision is to build highly inclusive and diverse platforms—we aim to not just deliver information but also serve as a creative hub,hosting and nurturing creators. This belief guides our strategy in product development—alongside our flagship product, Toutiao, the largest content discovery and creation platform in China, we have also developed a diverse portfolio of products that are popular around the world, most notably musical.ly and TopBuzz.
As of the end of 2017, Bytedance had over 10,000 employees, of which 3,000 are engineers, researchers and product managers.
