The Story Behind Volley
Mike Murchison, Co-founder
What inspired Volley?
Our team is committed to making technology more human. Volley is a community of developers, designers and entrepreneurs all helping each other make better things.
How did you get started?
Volley began as an email list called Project Connect. We used email to test our assumption that people in our extended network would facilitate introductions for each other around short requests. It didn’t take long for us to realize that these introductions were creating a lot of value and that the product deserved a standalone experience. We called this Volley. We’ve taken a very iterative approach to our development and our team usually thinks first about what features we can remove, not which new ones we can add.
