We are empowering a new economy of creators to launch businesses, pursue their passions, and turn their dreams into reality. Our mission is to empower everyone to gain creative and financial freedom. Our approach is through great design.
About the Design Studio
This is an opportunity to join a new kind of design studio—one that truly invents. It's an opportunity to work on a product that unlocks creativity. A chance to shape a product that represents a radically better internet—pushing the envelope of cultural relevance in a way that is common in fashion but unheard of in technology.
Finally, it's an opportunity to join a company that lives on the internet. Universe is a distributed team—we have over 40 employees across the US.
