Chess.com is #1 in online chess... But who are we? Where did Chess.com come from? Where are we going?

The Beginning
Chess.com started in 2005 when two friends — Jay and Erik (that's me!) — decided the world needed a better chess website. We met 10 years earlier in college, where I first became addicted to chess — and Jay was the chess club president. We became friends through our shared passion for the game.

There were places to play online, but none of them felt like home. We imagined a site where people could build their chess home online and all in one place: to play in a safe and friendly environment, find friends, save their games, tell their chess stories, share ideas, and learn from each other.

I was mid-way through a graduate degree at Stanford and all of my classmates were taking jobs in finance or hot tech companies. But I turned down job offers (including Facebook!) to follow the dream of building the greatest chess site the world had ever seen. And I convinced Jay’s wife to let him join me! Luckily enough, we found out that “chess.com” was coming available in a bankruptcy auction, and we bought the name.

Over the next several years, Jay and I poured our life savings, our hearts, and most of our waking hours into building Chess.com. But we never imagined what it is today!

 

Chess.com Today
- Chess.com hosts more than one million chess games every day. It’s crazy. Even we can’t believe it!

- Chess.com employs more than 40 people as programmers, content editors, and member support. This team is entirely virtual (no office) and represents 12 countries!

- Chess.com supports more than 20 world class chess players, coaches, and professionals by paying them to create awesome content.

 

Our Values
Chess.com tries to be more than a chess site. We strive to be a community where chess fans from around the world can feel safe and happy while they grow as chess players. Here's what we believe in:

- Kindness: We believe that everyone deserves to be treated with respect. We encourage everyone to follow the golden rule of treating others how you would like to be treated. Be kind!

- Learning: You never lose when you learn! Life and chess are both about learning, growing, experimenting, failing and then getting back up again with greater knowledge and understanding.

- Joy: We believe in fun, smiles, laughter, and in creating enjoyable experiences for everyone. Chess can be pure joy! The beauty of the game and the pure satisfaction of moving chess pieces around a board… exhilarating!

SUPPORT

shaun Shaun - Director of Support & ChessTV

I wear two hats for Chess.com. First, I'm here to make sure technical problems do not get in the way of your chess experience. Secondly, I edit the chess news articles to make sure their content sparkles. In my personal life I like to play tournament chess (badly), write sci-fi and fantasy literature (slightly better than I play chess), and enjoy long walks on the . . . wait, what is this blurb for again?

patzer24 Matt (Patzer24) - Billing & Member Services

I am the man who takes care of your every billing and membership need. I also do a lot of behind the scenes tasks in the up keep of the chess end of things on the website. Chess is my life, that is why I am here, duh! When I am not on here doing what I do you will probably find me at a real life chess tournament.

calamondin Amelia (Calamondin) - Member Support

I help out with member support along with my amazing teammates on Chess.com. We are like the Three Amigos, except there are more than three of us. Wherever there is injustice, we'll be there, whenever there is disconnection, you will find us. . . here. I am highly motivated by gratitude for a job well done. I enjoy mountain biking, going to the beach, hanging out with my nieces, and teaching Public Speaking at the college level. I like collecting jokes, listening to music, and sharing meals with friends. I am a cancer survivor. My ultimate idea of a good time is a spontaneous dance party where there is endless guacamole.

jaclyn Jaclyn - Member Support

I work on the small things to keep everyone happy so that you guys can focus on your skills :) Outside of work, I like spending time with my two dachshunds (Schnitzel and Luna) and keeping up with new technology trends.

Kayt Kisha (Kayt) - Member Support

Hi! Dobry Den! Hola! Hallo! I've been playing chess (F2F and on chess.com) since 2008. (Hey, that rhymes...) I'm a global kind of girl. I'm Panamanian-American! My second home is Czech Republic! I have lived all over the world. Traveling is my second love. My first, of course, is chess :D When I'm not online at chess.com I am probably: playing my guitar, looking for the next great band, writing your favorite viral web content, editing magazines, knitting, doing yoga, cooking some vegetarian meal, training for half marathons, or running through some terminal in an airport. Really, I'm just your typical girl next door with a chess obsession.

I love helping people and making them happy :) I'm here to help you whenever you have a question. I also am a firm believer that in order to be happy at life, you should be nice and have fun.

BrotherJosh Josh (BrotherJosh) - Member Support, Live Chess Presenters Director & ChessTV

 

Kirkwood Matt (Kirkwood) - Member Support

 

Blackenne Naomi (Blackenne) - Member Support & ChessKid.com

Hey Chessers! I’m just your friendly, neighborhood member support person, here to help you in any way I can. I love to create smiles and hopefully will be able to solve any of your problems =) About me? I love my job, my kid, my dog, my life! I don’t have time for much else but if I did, I’d be out riding my motorcycle to the local billiards club to school some boys in 9-ball. Afterwards, I’d sing some karaoke and dance the night away, then fall asleep reading about flying a dragon ;)

The secret to life = be content with what you have, in this, you will find happiness.

david David - Site Moderator and Abuse Monitor

Helping to Keep It Clean by identifying and removing stuff we don't want, like fake spam accounts and other material that I encounter on my chess.com virtual travels.

mathguyma mathguyma - Abuse Detection Monitor

I love playing chess and interacting with various people from all walks of life. Look forward to making new friends.


CONTENT

DanielRensch IM DanielRensch - VP of Content & Professional Relations

Try to say "I do chess for a living..." and not smile. You can't. It's impossible. Seriously, I'm the luckiest guy in the room: A Chess Professional who somehow managed to turn his love and knowledge of the game into the best job in the world! Though I don't play much actual chess myself these days, I'm proud to be the guy in charge of all the chess content you enjoy here. I take every chance I get to record videos and host Chess/TV shows myself, but "in between sets", I'm fortunate to work with an amazing team of amazing people doing amazing things.

Love the wife. Love the kids. Love the life.

mikeklein FM MikeKlein - Director of Content

FM stands for Fun Master. My favorite chess piece is the pencil on the scoresheet. I like writing about chess more than playing in tournaments, and Chess.com weirdly allows this blasphemous mindset. I'll take it! I report on tournaments, do live commentary, edit lots of videos and articles, and keep Chesskid.com running smoothly. I'm like a slightly older, less loquacious, lower-rated version of Danny. I like to travel, play tennis, bike, and play with my kitten, Ipso Facto.

peterdoggers CM PeterDoggers - Director of Content

Besides many different "little things", I am responsible for keeping you updated on the chess news. As a chess fan I can hardly imagine a better job, so I feel lucky and privileged to be able to do this for a living! I founded ChessVibes.com in 2007. In September 2013, Chess.com "proposed" to ChessVibes, and ChessVibes said yes! My site was acquired, and I was hired full time. The result? A great chess platform with great content (ahum). I live in Amsterdam with my girlfriend and Miep, our lovely cat. I like outdoor activities and (rock) music. And chess, of course!

ChessKidGirl Christine (ChessKidGirl) - ChessKid.com Director of Scholastic and Educational Development

I reach out to schools and youth organizations across the country & around the world - to introduce them to ChessKid.com and show how their students can learn and connect through chess. If you work with a large scholastic program, I'm here to help get your program organized, active, and make ChessKid.com easy to use. I'm also lucky to represent ChessKid.com in person at on-site events and tournaments. Stop by & say hi!

pete Pete - Editor

 

mjpennywark Michael (mjpennywark) - Video Editor

As a video editing guru, I put together the videos and make ChessTV better.

I also direct short films and enjoy writing for a variety of publications. I'm often found in the gym when not playing chess or spending time with my awesome wife. 

SamCopeland NM Sam Copeland - Assistant Editor

For as long as I can remember, I've been enthusiastically blundering pieces. Gradually, my zeal for chess has lead me to more opportunities as a chess coach, instructor, and writer. In 2014, I started a company, Strategery: Chess and Games, to teach children in my hometown how to play the royal game.

Chess.com has been both my favorite place to play and train chess and my best resource for private and group coaching, and I'm excited to work for the Chess.com team, helping to edit and write some of the great content chess.com puts out every day."

bcurtis Ben (bcurtis) - Director of Engineering

I'm one of the website developers, coding on Chess.com since just a few months after it was born. I fix things and build foundation-level stuff, and if I do it right then you won't notice much except a general increase in awesome. Outside of work, I write screenplays and am finishing my first novel — it must be a long-term passion, because I've been "finishing" it for years now. :)

Every specialist has their own priorities at work. The most important principle for me is to be detail-oriented. I am sure that the sense of easy intuitive interface is in details. Each pixel plays its own role.

echosa Brian (echosa) - Developer

I’ve been programming for fun since the mid 90’s and professionally since 2000. I enjoy learning and trying new languages and software, and I always find something new to apply to what I already know.

Outside of work, when I’m not programming for fun, I’m a musician, a lyricist, a dragon collector, and occasionally a haiku writer. I also enjoy curling, Dota 2, and tea… lots and lots of tea.

kwaamkit Jacob (kwaamkit) - Java & JavaScript Developer

Apparently, I write code much better than I play chess. I love them both though and that's why I work here at chess.com -- as a developer not a GM -- with our amazing team! Outside of chess, I love lounging out at tropical beach paradises or riding motorcycles through beautiful mountain terrains. I also love learning languages and am currently getting pretty proficient at reading/writing and speak Thai.

roland

Roland - Director of Research

Among the many many qualifications that typically do not appear on my resume, I:
- have managed five winning political campaigns
- can operate a patch clamp and a flow cytometer
- was expelled from Johns Hopkins and disqualified from Jeopardy!, which both start with J
- have an Erdős number of 3

I also consider myself to be a professional yodeler, because someone once bought me a drink after karaoke, which is technically compensation.

Nathan

Nathan - Engine Master

As a kid, I was given an Apple II computer, and I haven't stopped programming since. I've always enjoyed playing chess, but I was never all that good, so I decided to make a chess engine instead. Here at Chess.com, I have the tremendous blessing of getting paid to have fun tinkering on chess engines.

I grew up in the Midwest, but I've spent the last few years living in beautiful parts of Asia. Besides chess and programming, I love spending time with my wonderful wife and kids.

Gus

Gus - JavaScript Developer

I'm part of the frontend team creating new features. I started programming when I was twelve and my first major project was a chess app, on which I spent a disproportionate amount of time fixing issues with the Bughouse variant (the clue is in the name). I work from my home office in Hull, England. Before Chess.com, I did odd web development jobs for local companies. I like walking long distances and camping, ideally with a backpack that's big enough to sweep everything off the shelves whenever I happen to find myself turning around in a small shop.

Martyn

Martyn - Front-end Developer

I'm Martyn Chamberlin, a 22-year-old software developer. I graduated this spring from Northeastern State University with a bachelor of science in computer science, and married my best friend Abigail in July!

I'm a Chess.com iOS developer since December 2014. Back when we started, we worked with the Chesskid V2 app, building it from scratch.

PRODUCT

deepgreene Michael (DeepGreene) - Projects & Social Media

In return for helping to design cool new features, I get to play with them first - and then tease everyone about it on Facebook & Twitter. I actually do still enjoy chess quite a bit, but I also love to stay a few steps ahead of my inner lazy slob by running at least 20 miles a week.

ignoble Dallin (ignoble) - Web & Interaction Designer

I do my best to help make Chess.com simple, easy, and fun to use. My passions in life include spending time with my wife and kids, running, cycling, snowboarding, hiking, camping, sushi, experiential learning, and creating cool stuff.

    Hi. Thank you. Sorry I to so long to reply. I am so happy to make your aquaintance. I am a high school science teacher in Miami, Florida. I am a much better teacher than I am a chess player; but I love the game so much.

    Hi Guys,

    I'd like to support chess.com.

    Only that I don't have a credit card.

    I have a savings account (debit card) with one of the banks here in the Phiippines.

    I'm willing to pay from this account.

    Why not have all the countries on the page "group and team"? Or in this web site selective list of countries?

    My grandmother has taught me chess and count from one to ten before I could read and write.

    At the college I played many chess games and chess tournaments – I had many joy due to the chess.

    After graduation of the college, the work and family absorb the time. new other events and interesting things occupied the life.

     

    When my dear family vanished into thin air and my work began to be the joyless work.  I felt what I become more alone and really now I am alone all over world. As I am as a painter (I made the art-painting), I painted my feeling - I am the bench under rain. See it.

    Art-painting helps me to get my head above water and to keep some joy.

    When I became a Member at Chess.com with grand honour of a free Diamond Membership (Monthly) at Chess.com, (special thanks to Leo) My feeling became highest, my mood is highest.

     I feel enjoy, greatest enjoy of the world of the chess.

     

    It is like see it

     

    I see Chess.com is full world of chess : learning, play, tourneys,  games archive and modern events, TV, video and articles and so on and so on , all things what chess player , what  I want.

     

    I thank Chess.com!
