PopSockets LLC, designs, manufactures and sells innovative lifestyle products. Our flagship product, the PopSockets grip, was invented by philosophy professor David Barnett, with the first grip sold in 2014. The business has since sold over 40 million grips around the world and this year was ranked as Inc. 5000’s second fastest growing company in America. Our product is a collapsible grip and stand that provides secure one-handed holding for any mobile device. Customizable, repositionable, and addictingly fun to pop, PopSockets products embody the company's mission to create empowering, personal, and magical products.

It doesn’t take a lot to realize that PopSockets isn’t your average company. Sure, we’ve got pretty sweet products to thank for that. But we’d be hard pressed not to give most of the credit to our people. Which is why we strive to bring in folks that can help make us even better - people who are selfless, customer obsessed, responsible, impactful, passionate, innovative, and courageous. These are the same traits that define who we are as a brand. We work smart and play hard.
