Kapwing empowers creators. It’s an online image and video platform that people make, edit, and collaborate on multimedia projects for work, school, and life. We’re enabling modern storytellers, entertainers, educators, and visionaries to express themselves and design in the “4th dimension” (content with a timeline). Our vision is to become the go-to multimedia editor for teams to collaborate and meet demands for content quantity without sacrificing quality.

With remote work, remote learning, an economic downturn and the rise of social media as a political advocacy channel, video and media entrepreneurship have never been more relevant for the world. Join a company that's democratizing creative tools and inventing the future stack of video creation. We value velocity, growth, and impact, plus a strong community of coworkers who support each other and collaborate.

We’re also a Series A startup founded by two X-Googlers/Harvard/Stanford and backed by CRV, Kleiner Perkins and other top VCs. We've grown to millions of monthly-active creators through purely organic channels. Read more about Kapwing in TechCrunch.
