Career

Jamie is the founder of Ring. Therefore, Ring is the world’s first Wi-Fi video doorbell, aimed at preventing and solving neighborhood crime. In the year 2018, Amazon purchased Ring in a $1bn deal – its second-largest acquisition ever. This personality is a lifelong inventor who founded several other successful ventures prior to Ring.

Therefore, these include PhoneTag, the world’s first voicemail-to-text company, and Unsubscribe.com, a service that helps users clear unwanted commercial emails from their inboxes. In the year 2011, he came up with the concept simply as a way for him to see the delivery person at the front door while working in his garage.

Then, called Doorbot, he soon realized the gadget’s potential to transform a family’s home security system. Therefore, its technology not only granted convenience but gave the security to safely answer the door from anywhere. Moreover, it was described by Jamie’s wife as being like ‘caller-ID for the front door’.

Over the next few years, it proved difficult for him to find the investment to bring his creation to market. Similarly, in the year 2013, the ‘Sharks’ on ‘Shark Tank’ did not offer his desired investment. Nonetheless, Jamie persisted with the concept and built on the publicity generated through his appearance. However, despite coming away empty-handed, Ring remains the largest company ever to appear on the show.

And, as Ring continued to grow, the company soon attracted the attention of Amazon. Likewise, seeing it as a vital addition to the smart-home market, in the year 2018, they made the smart-camera-equipped doorbells their second-largest acquisition to date. Additionally, this person has since returned to ‘Shark Tank’, this time as a guest judge.
