About Descript

Descript builds simple and powerful collaborative tools for new media creators. We strive to eliminate the tedious work that often stands between an idea and its expression, so that creators can focus on developing their craft instead of their usage of tools. Descript was founded in San Francisco in 2017.

If you'd like to learn about how the company got started, we wrote a post about it. Descript has raised a total of $50M from Andreessen Horowitz, Redpoint Ventures, and Spark Capital.

The team is 40 people and growing. Visit our careers page if you think you might want to work here.

Work at Descript

Join our team and be part of building a new class of AI-driven tools that push the limits of how we create media.

Descript is building the next generation platform for creative tools, making audio and video creation as fast, accessible, and collaborative as Google Docs. We are a team of 70 people — with a proven CEO and the backing of some of the world's greatest investors (Andreessen Horowitz, Redpoint Ventures and Spark Capital). Descript HQ is in San Francisco, and our AI team (formerly Lyrebird) is based in Montreal.

Descript is the special company that's in possession of both product market fit and the raw materials (passionate user community, great product, large market) for growth, but is still early enough that each new employee has a measurable influence on the direction of the company.

As a small startup, Descript relies on employees who thrive in an environment where they are regularly called upon to translate high level goals into day-to-day priorities, and are regularly presented with technical and business challenges that extend beyond their comfort zone.

Benefits include a generous healthcare package, catered lunches, unlimited vacation time, equity, and an ample supply of a few healthy snacks.
