Work hard, play hard. Growing a company isn't easy, but we have a ton of fun going for it.


Customer Support Specialist

What projects are you most excited about?

We just launched the alpha version of a browser-based video editor. Not only was the backend tech a major breakthrough - I really feel that it's the simplest, most convenient tool of its kind. The editor alone can take this company to new heights.
