Squiggle is startup funded and incubated at Night Labs, a creator-driven venture studio that builds venture-scale businesses around some of the top digital creators on the planet. Night also manages 30+ of the Top 100 Youtub’ers, Tik Tok’ers, Instagram personalities and Twitch streamers. When you work at a Night Labs company, you work for a start-up with venture-scale speed and a massive distribution advantage from the get go. To date, we’ve launched four venture backed businesses with top operators across food, gaming, marketplaces, fintech and more. This new stealth company Squiggle is their latest incubation, and we’re building out the founding team!
What Is Squiggle All About?
We believe that anyone can be emboldened to create digital art that supports self-expression and wellbeing. We want the creation of art to take someone through a journey of discovery, wonder, and delight. In partnership with YouTube creator Moriah Elizabeth, who has a strong and vibrant art community, we seek to create an encouraging and motivating space that makes digital art feel accessible, rewarding, and provides human connection. We are just beginning our own journey to design and build this brand new experience - if this journey peaks your interest, we want to hear from you!
We are looking for our very first Engineering leader to help us define and bring to life our vision for this unique experience exclusively on mobile. We are looking for someone who loves digitally native mediums and tools and is fascinated by ways they can be brought together to create new definitions of digital art. Bringing together experiences that are fun to engage with session after session, combined with ways to help our artists form bonds with other budding artists and Moriah, is at the heart of how we want to connect with our audience. You will be expected to have a strong point of view and be able to bring others in and build upon broader feedback. This is an exciting opportunity to join as one of the founding members of the team, reporting directly to the CEO, and building a brand new mobile experience from the ground up.
