Join the Artery Team


We’re as connected as we’ve ever been through our devices, but we’re also becoming increasingly isolated from one another in real life. Artery is a community and platform designed to bring people together for intimate cultural experiences.

We are tackling the next frontier of the sharing economy – culture. Our platform allows anyone to open their private spaces and self-organize intimate performances (music, dance, theatre, food, wellness, talks) that happen in their living rooms, backyards and storefronts. The concept is as old as sitting around a fire, but we’re introducing algorithmic relevance and social trust to scale this like never before. Here’s what journalists say about us.


We want to be a place where a diverse mix of talented people want to come, stay and do their best work. We’re fully focused on equality and believe deeply in diversity of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, national origin and all the other fascinating characteristics that make us different.
