We believe the world can never get enough of magical products and experiences. Making them requires a balance of art and technology, as well as a maniacal focus on delivering joy to the people who use them. When a product is truly special, it leaves an indelible mark.The people who make those products are creative, high-energy, and have a sharp intellect. They are technologists with the heart of an artist. They have imagination, guts, and drive. They have unique insights into how people work and play, and they aim to touch the lives of hundreds of millions of people. They might be equally as likely to be inspired by the work of Frank Gehry and Jeff Koons as Jonathan Ive and Yves Behar or Larry Page and Elon Musk. We think working with those people is about as much fun as you can have in this world.
