An Insider's view of Screencastify

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

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

Keith

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.

Don't go to the burrito place in our building. Just trust me.
