Haystack is today’s modern employee intranet on a mission to make big companies feel smaller.

Haystack's software helps companies connect their workforce by streamlining internal communications and forging employee connections.

Haystack was founded in 2019 by Cameron Lindsay and Haibo Zhao. The company is headquartered in Los Angeles, California.


Haystack offers universal search capabilities that allows anyone to search for any content across all their conduits — this is perhaps one of the core components of the Haystack platform.


Haystack's customers improve alignment, increase engagement, scale culture, and onboard new hires faster. The company targets larger companies with at least 300 employees such as NerdWallet and Chime Bank.


Haystack was launched with $8.2M in funding on Mar 23, 2021. Backers included Coatue, Greycroft, BoxGroup, Day One Ventures and others.
