Streamlabs TLDR

Hiring for many roles - details @ https://angel.co/company/stream-labs/jobs

  • Priority roles are: marketing, C++, business lead, product
  • If you want to join us, but we are not hiring for your role/skills - please reach out
  • careers@streamlabs.com

What do we do

  • We make products for live streamers (i.e. streamlabs). This is the core business today, but we are building to support all creator verticals. We are building a company that is to content creators what Nike is to athletes
  • Examples of new things we built that are public: https://oslo.io/ http://melonapp.com/ http://lucra.live/
  • Many failures along the way (8 other moonshots in last 16 months that did not find product market fit and that's okay)

Mission

Empower creators to do more

Why does this matter

  • When you power someone's creative process - you touch them in their heart. That's a special connection.
  • Creator economy is the future. Average size of the firm is shrinking: agricultural revolution -> industrial revolution -> tech boom -> creator revolution (avg size of 1)
  • Live streaming: (1) 1B+ viewers and growing, (2) live video streaming is estimated to grow to $70B segment by 2021 (est. @ $30B in 2016), (3) large market that will continue to grow
  • How we interact with the people we admire (high engagement) and how we consume content (live) will continue to evolve and continue to be a bigger and bigger part of our lives
  • Creator/influencer ecosystem is much larger if you go beyond live streaming to other content verticals: static VOD, patronage, writing, podcasting etc.
  • In short, we are fueling the creator economy by building essential products for creators. We will enable these creators to grow, to build communities, and to connect with 100s of millions of fans (i.e. scale).That's impact!
