About us

Our mission is to allow for richer human communication: people represented with their faces, voices, and emotions intact. To do this, we’ve created a cloud video platform that anyone can use—if you can write a text document, you can search, edit, and share video with Reduct. We aim to create the human record: a searchable, editable repository of lived experience.

We are based in a beautiful office in San Francisco’s Mission district. We welcome visitors, and would love to treat you to homemade bagels in the morning or sparkling conversation into the evening.

As a Front-end Engineer, you will lead implementation of our online video editing interface that feels like magic even in its MVP state. Ideally, you can make the browser do a backflip and land on its toes, all without dropping a frame. Experience with large front-end codebases and mobile apps is a plus and love of implementing good design is a must.
