We are a small, bootstrapped startup founded by ex-Apple engineers. Our tools Astropad Studio and Luna Display are used by tens of thousands of creative pros, and some of the largest animation studios in the world, and we are just getting started!

Our team includes interdisciplinary contributors from a variety of cities and backgrounds. Still, we all see something of ourselves in each other. An Astropad team member is kind, honest, a little contrarian, and obsessed with quality.

What it's like to work for Astropad

Remote-first 
Since our start, we’ve always been set up as a remote-first company. With teammates across North America, we’ve struck a balance between video calls and asynchronous communication. We encourage team members to unplug from Slack to sink into deep work. 

We’ll set you up with the tools and tech you need for your home workspace, along with a coworking stipend for when you want to get out of the house. Twice a year, we all get together for a week-long company retreat. 

Wellbeing and rest
We offer health, dental, and vision insurance for you and your family. Take the time you need with unlimited sick days and mental health days. All new parents get paid parental leave. 

We see deep value in stepping away from work. You’re never expected to work more than 40 hours per week. We have a tiered paid time off structure with up to five weeks of vacation time, plus a one-month paid sabbatical after five years. Every teammate has access to two days off annually to volunteer. We also do a one-week company-wide shutdown over the holiday season.

Competitive pay 
We have a competitive, non-location-based salary structure — so your pay isn’t dependent on what city you’re in. Every teammate has the opportunity to share in the company’s success with stock option grants and bonuses. 

Benefits 

  • Flexible work schedules
  • Competitive pay + equity
  • 401k with matching up to 4%
  • Coworking space reimbursement stipend
  • Health, dental and vision insurance
  • 8 weeks paid parental leave for all new parents
  • 3 weeks vacation
  • Challenging and creative work
  • High impact work with significant responsibilities

The Astropad Manifesto

At Astropad, we value creativity. We build products that encourage it, and we seek out team members who do too. Because creativity is like wildfire. When we work in an inspired way, we create products that rouse others to do the same.

1.  Go against the grain: Don’t do what everyone else is doing. Instead, swim upstream and question what’s out there — because we value the unexpected, and the unexpected is often born of dissent.

2.  Cross the canyons first: Don’t save the biggest challenges for last; attack the biggest challenges first. Build the bridge over the canyon before the simple road leading up to it. What do you gain by building what you already know you can?

3.  Experiment confidently: Acquire information through experimentation. Have a lot of ideas, the courage to try the best ones out, and the confidence to move on if they don’t work.

4.  Listen to customers: We don’t take outside investment. We are funded by our customers. We grow by supporting and listening to them, by identifying the “extra mile” that will enhance their experience — and then by delivering it.

5.  Under-promise, then over-deliver: Exaggerated claims and products seem to go hand in hand. But the truth always rises to the top, and the products that speak for themselves when in the hands of users will always win out.
