We rebuilt the inbox from the ground up to make you brilliant at what you do.

Number of employees


Our customers get through their inbox twice as fast as before; many see inbox zero for the first time in years.

Come shape the future of email, communication, and productivity!


At Superhuman, we deeply understand how to build products people love. We incorporate fun and play; we infuse magic and joy; we make experiences that amaze and delight.

It all starts with the right team — a team that deeply cares about values, customers, and each other.


We're not solving a small problem, and we're not addressing a small market. We're going after email; the one activity that consumes more of our work day than any other.

Our ambition doesn't stop there. Next: calendars, notes, contacts, tasks. We are building the productivity platform of the future.

At Superhuman, you will have massive impact: you will define product strategy, and translate big ideas into experiences that delight our customers. You will create gorgeous products that millions of people use for hours every single day.


We have created the frameworks for how to build product market fit and redefined the narrative of how to onboard customers successfully. We have shown the world it’s possible to build a premium productivity brand. Our investors include Andreessen Horowitz, First Round Capital, IVP, Tiger Global Management, Sam Altman, and the founders of Gmail, Dropbox, Reddit, Discord, Stripe, GitHub, AngelList, and Intercom.

Our latest financing was led by IVP, and we welcomed Ajay Vashee to our board. Our prior financing was led by Andreessen Horowitz, and we welcomed Marc Andreessen and David Ulevitch to our board.

This time, we’re swinging beyond the fences and fundamentally rethinking how individuals and teams should collaborate. We are building a household brand and a worldwide organization. We are here to do the best work of our lives, and we hope you are too.

Life at Superhuman

Our workdays reflect our product: we incorporate fun and play; we infuse magic and joy; we create experiences that amaze and delight.


This weekly event is our longest-running tradition and a company favorite! Every Friday, the entire team gathers together to share what they've accomplished during the week. It's a time to wind down, connect with each other, and celebrate our achievements as a team!


In your first week at Superhuman, we pair you with an experienced team member outside your team to help you settle in and show you the ropes. You always have someone to talk with and answer questions.


Every Wednesday, we split the team into random groups of two or three to grab lunch outside the office. This helps us get to know each other, build meaningful relationships, and discover new favorite spots.


We love to celebrate each other! Whether it's customer love, a work milestone, or major life event — praise is fundamental at Superhuman. The best part: figuring out how to surprise and delight your teammates!
