DescriptionWhat We Do: At Famous we are passionate about pushing the limits of interfaces, experiences, and design. Our design software, called Famous Studio, creates powerful creation tools for Instant Apps, Instant Ads, Instant Videos, Instant Articles, and Instant Presentations that reduce creation time from months to minutes. Famous Studio enables creators of all types to turn their existing Photoshop, Sketch, Adobe XD designs, into live production-grade applications instantly.
Founded in 2011 by Steve Newcomb and Mark Lu, Famous is based in San Francisco and has partnered with brands such as McDonald's, Adidas, Best Buy, Walmart, and Target to deploy engaging web experiences. Famous Studio is currently in private beta. You can sign-up for our beta at Famous.co
Why We Do It
We strive to evoke change. Change that drives the web toward becoming a more beautiful and thoughtful place. Our goal is to put this powerful design tool in the hands of every creator. We want Famous Studio to push the limits of interfaces, experiences, and design, on every device including mobile, tablets, wearables, desktops and televisions. We like to think of Famous Studio as the modern-day equivalent of Microsoft Office, but for today's internet needs.
Another factor that sets us apart from other companies is our engineering approach. Most companies heavily rely on the inventions of others and build upon those existing inventions. Famous' engineering department has an aversion to third party libraries, and they invent for the purpose of staying ahead of the market.
How We Interview and Hire
We take the time to truly understand each candidate and let them interview us as much as we are interviewing them. Interviewing is a two way street! We believe that working with a person on a real project is the best way to get to know them, and we structure our interviews to be as close to a working session as possible.
