We’re building groundbreaking adaptive music technology, are working with top artists from major labels Warner and Sony, and will be launching a partnership with a global fitness brand later this year. Our first product, Weav Run, is a musical running app that seamlessly adapts the tempo and timeline of hit songs to match your stride and workout.

  • Prefer working on world-changing products in a small startup environment
  • Thrive in fast-paced environments and produce stable features at breakneck speed

- Love music! And maybe running, too :)

  • A never-seen-before adaptive music streaming server
  • A content management system for our adaptive music production and usage reporting
  • Integrations with external music partners’ technologies
  • .….lots more, depending on your interests!

We have an endless supply of world-class coffee made with our red La Marzocco , which has traveled with us to our successive offices in London, LA, & NYC. We take pride in fostering an inclusive culture, and strive to ensure everyone maintains a healthy work/life balance.
