At Projector, we’re on a mission to help people communicate with purpose to effect positive change. We’re building a graphic design platform where anyone is invited to turn their ideas into beautiful visual stories, with tools that are powerful, collaborative, and pure fun. From content creators, to small business owners, or creative teams looking for a better way to work together, we want to make it easier for more people to meaningfully connect with their audience through good design. 
It’s an exciting time at Projector, and we’re looking for a Product Web Engineer to join our team and help us tackle the technical challenges of bringing professional-grade graphics, GIFs, videos, presentations, social posts, and more, to a real-time collaborative space on the web.

What you'll do

    • Work closely with our design team to define and understand the product we’re building.
