Anchor Keeps Expanding Its Payroll

After hiring a Head of Production they now have a Operations Manager:

…Ryan will be helping the Anchor team to move more quickly than ever by automating operations, continuing to improve Anchor HQ, and freeing the team of distractions.

You will recall that Anchor took $10M in Series A funding last year and this hiring spree is part of that.

I’m still not sure what to make of Anchor. It seems a confusing mishmash of casual audio creation tools (I’m still very skeptical that people actually want to create or listen to this kind of content), a social network and a few creator tools (such as the Audiogram creator, a slick text-based audio editing interface and also now a podcast hosting service). I’m still waiting for that ‘a-ha’ moment when I get what Anchor is.
