Bottom line: You’ll be core in our ambition to build a category-defining experience, and your equity stake will reflect this.
Our origin story.
In addition to being backed by Y Combinator, our investors include a leading venture fund (not yet public) and a number of notable angel investors, including Emmett Shear (CEO, Twitch), Brit Morin (Brit + Co, Offline), David Lieb (Head of Product, Google Photos), Sander Daniels (Co-founder, Thumbtack), Amy Mohraime (Co-founder, Dreamhaven), Michael Mohraime (Founder, Blizzard; Co-founder, Dreamhaven), Michael Seibel (CEO, Y Combinator), Eric Kinariwala (CEO, Capsule), Kevin Lin (Co-founder, Twitch), and Shiva Rajaraman (VP Shops, Facebook, Fmr. CTO, WeWork)
One of our co-founders, George Quraishi, was previously the founder of Howler Magazine, which The New Yorker called, “A testimony to the beauty of print.” We appreciate that great design is core to what we are building at Artifact.
We are all working remotely at the moment. The right person for this role will be +/- 3 hours, by time zone from San Francisco (e.g., NYC is totally fine).
Here's a little Artifact-style introduction to the company.
I look forward to speaking with you!
Ross | Co-Founder & CEO
Artifact makes it easy to record stories with the most important people in your life.
We set them up with a professional interviewer through our marketplace and we make it easy, from scheduling interviews to delivering a polished edit that wouldn’t sound out of place on NPR. We then host their stories in shareable, interactive listening experiences.
Since launching, we’ve facilitated thousands of interviews in multiple languages across six continents, and have been named by the Wirecutter (NYT) as one of the best family gifts for two years running (2020, 2021). We’re well-capitalized.
Here’s a full Artifact we are allowed to share publicly—most are private—with two sisters reminiscing about a wild bat mitzvah!
We believe that a world where everyone builds their story with Artifact is a world where everyone’s story is heard.
