At plyfe, our mission is to make your digital life as rewarding as your real life. Users complete challenges, earn tickets, and win real-world prizes and once-in-a-lifetime experiences. We’ve integrated multiple social APIs (Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, Instagram, etc.) and built a rewards engine that turns your online actions into real-world rewards.

We’re partnering with Fortune 500 companies and international nonprofits to craft games that millions of people will play. We have some interesting problems to solve: implementing fun challenges crafted by our game designer, interacting with various social APIs for our game mechanics, building out our own API, and — the biggie — scaling.
