The Giftly Story

"I really wanted to treat my Mom to dinner at Sarducci's, her favorite restaurant in Vermont, and a movie at Savoy, the local indie theater. I wanted her to know that I was thinking about her all the way across the country. Nothing existed that felt personal but made this easy, so Giftly was born."

- Tim Bentley, Founder & CEO

Meet the Team:

Tim Bentley

Founder & CEO

Before founding Giftly, Tim was the first employee at Aardvark, managing operations and the early product prototype for the groundbreaking social search engine acquired by Google in 2010. Aardvark had acquired Tim because of his first startup, 1(800) KNOW-NOW, a real time search company based in New York, which Tim founded in 2006.
Before entering the world of technology, Tim was an investment banker at Cowen and Company. He has a BS in Engineering and Physics from Brown University.

David Tan


After 7 years on the Trust and Safety team at Google, David brings his engineering chops to Giftly, building out scalable infrastructure and developing rich user interfaces. He mentors and coaches new and aspiring software developers, helping them thrive in the technology industry.
An avid traveler, David has backpacked in New Zealand and hiked through the jungles of Thailand. He has visited 49 U.S. States and eagerly awaits Alaska.

Ann Stefan


At Giftly, Ann oversees fraud detection, corporate programs, and all things customer-facing. Previously, she built data-driven marketing software as a product manager at venture-backed startups CommandIQ and Quantifind, and spent several years as a biodefense consultant to the US Government. She is a track and field coach at Del Norte High School in San Diego and is a co-founder of the Kinetik Foundation, a nonprofit providing free injury prevention and rehabilitation to underserved high school athletes.
Ann has a BS in Chemical-Biological Engineering from MIT and is a founding member of MIT's First Generation Alumni group.

Balen Gore

Engineering Advisor

Balen comes to Giftly after six years at Google, where he honed his geek street cred as well as his love for all things gadget and G-related. He is a little bit more than excited to unleash his coding prowess to help Giftly revolutionize the gifting experience.
Pre-Giftly, Balen grew up in Eugene, Oregon and thus has an immense and consuming love for the Oregon Ducks. In his spare time, he enjoys exploring San Francisco, playing soccer, and expanding his tie-dye t-shirt collection.
