Originally founded in 2003 as a social bookmarking service, Delicious was acquired from Yahoo! in early 2011 by AVOS, a company helmed by YouTube founders Chad Hurley and Steve Chen. The site was rebuilt from the ground up and re-launched in fall 2011 with a new focus on curation and discovery.
Delicious is headquartered in a cozy San Mateo, California office within convenient reach of some of the Bay Area’s tastiest ramen. The California team is joined by engineers in China, New Zealand and Australia who enjoy creating stacks about Jonathan Ive and Geelong Cats rugby. Among other things.
