We pack cutting-edge AI technology into beautiful products to help thousands of creatives do their best work every day.
We believe great products are built with heart and soul – the culmination of thousands of tiny decisions made by engineers, designers, writers, and support folks doing the real work every day. It requires deep understanding, unrelenting focus, and obsessing about the details until they’re absolutely perfect. It means we talk to customers until we understand their workflows better than they do, and then painstakingly mold sometimes finicky technology until it’s seamless. There is no room for ego, hierarchy, or politics – just an unflinching focus on our customer and product.
We start with a great user experience and work backwards from there. There’s no better feeling than starting with a blank canvas, molding and remolding something until it works, and then polishing it until it’s iconic.
Here’s a few of the unique ways photographers, designers, and other creatives are using our technology.
Our product and user focus has helped us double our impact every year, but we’re still far from where we can be. Accelerating growth means exciting projects and unbounded opportunities for the folks who work here. You’ll be able to make a fundamental impact on our products and culture while quickly growing your own skillset.

Because of the nature of our company and culture, here’s some of the things that keep us up at night.
There’s inherent tension between cutting-edge AI vs. user experience.
AI is transformative but also difficult and finicky to work with – especially on consumer desktop computers. It’s one thing to reproduce a few impressive results from a paper somewhere. It’s much more difficult to build production-ready software loved by creatives all over the world.
When our products work, they work really well. But the nature of living on the cutting edge means that we can often fail spectacularly too! From product to design to marketing to customer success, we’re striving to become the best in the world at navigating this balance to make the best user experience possible. We’d love your help in exploring this even further.
Our impact grows faster than our team size.
We’re not willing to sacrifice our craftsmanship-first culture or product quality just to “step on the gas” by hiring too quickly. We’re self-funded and profitable since inception, and we’ve been fortunate enough to massively grow just by keeping relentless focus on the product and customer experience.
There’s two sides to this coin. On one hand, because we’re very selective about who joins the team, you’ll likely work with some of the smartest, most dedicated, and most capable people here that you’ll ever meet. On the other hand, our growth rate outpaces our hiring rate, so we need to ruthlessly prioritize and continuously grow as individuals in order to get everything done. There’s no “helpers” at our company to take up the slack – each of us owns an area of responsibility larger than our comfort level.
This kind of environment is not for everyone, but we’ve found that certain people absolutely love this fast-paced and ownership-centric kind of culture. Send us a note if that’s you!
Our success depends entirely upon fantastic execution.
AI is growing faster than even the early Internet. We’ve been able to use it to create jaw-dropping results for our customers, but we’re not the only ones trying. The success of our product and business relies upon consistently executing better than anyone else.
Because our space is moving so fast, we work amidst significant ambiguity and constantly must push ourselves to be faster and better. We don’t expect to keep our current technology lead if we don’t continuously accelerate.
We don’t have all the answers yet. The majority of our impact has yet to be built, almost certainly by someone reading these words. We’re constantly pushing the cutting-edge at our company, so we’re looking for high-trajectory people to help us get to the next level. It won’t be easy or relaxing here, but you will have the opportunity to move fast, learn quickly, and do work that matters. We can’t wait to see the impact you make on our company and our industry.

We approach hiring a little bit differently than some other companies might. We’re a small team that loves what we do and values craftsmanship and quality over all else. While we’re always excited to welcome new team members, we have no external pressure to grow our team quicker than necessary. Our highest priority is to ensure that new team members will love working here and that we’ll love working with you.
We’ve found that mission-driven people who believe in craftsmanship generally find the most joy in our culture:
Do you absolutely love what you do? Do you pour yourself into their work with heart? Are you obsessive about making an impact?
Are you unreasonably good at what you do? Are you on the path to greatness? Will you use the opportunities at our company as a platform to achieve it?
If this sounds like you, we’d love to chat even if none of our open roles quite fit. Please apply for one of our open jobs and let us know what resonated about our culture. Really hope to hear from you soon – we can’t wait to have you join us!
