I love Burner - how does it work in the backend though? do you just have a lot of numbers and you cycle through them
Greg CohnMakerHiring@gregcohn · Co-Founder & CEO, Burner
@kar2905 we prototyped on Twilio and now use several providers on the back end that can serve us clean phone numbers and provide other telephony capabilities at carrier scale. Old-school virtual number services used to have to do a lot of work to manage this part of the infrastructure on Asterix, Freeswitch, etc., but telephony is going the way of services like AWS. This is great for us -- we get to spend our time focused on the experience and user-facing features.
