It’s going to take you 5 minutes to read it, but it is 100% worth it. Let us explain. A quick history of media production
Over the past 100 years, media production went through cycles of innovation that impacted the production, distribution, and consumption of media in ways that we couldn’t predict. Things are changing quickly, technologies grow and evolve in multiple waves. One of the ways to think about how technologies emerge is that stuff tends to begin small and slow. There is an early period where the technology isn’t quite working. It’s emerging from university/corporate labs, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to be very useful or important. But then, it reaches a point where the growth accelerates upwards. Everything starts working. It moves from the period when it was kind of a crazy idea to a period of excitement and growth. Look at the S-curve below and think of PCs, smartphones, etc. Image credit: https://waitbutwhy.com/2015/01/artificial-intellig At Synthesia, we believe the future of media is synthetic, and we are on a mission to turn cameras into code and make everyone a creator. Not sure what’s that all about? Check this article from our CEO and Co-Founder, Victor Riparbelli. (If the hyperlink doesn’t work, search for synthetic media victor riparbelli on Google ) It’s kind of a crazy idea. But, after 4 years of research efforts and a rollercoaster of wins and fails, here is a graph showing the number of AI-generated videos by our customers at Synthesia. Not that crazy of an idea anymore, huh?
P.S. If you scroll up and look at the S-curve, you understand how early we are, right? P.P.S This is like building internet applications in the early ’90s. It’s super-duper early ⚡️ About The Position We’re hiring a Product Manager, someone that will shape in a significant way our product and strategy.

It’s a creative tool, used by a community of passionate users (from freelancers to content creators working in fortune 500 companies) on a daily basis and growing quickly. They love and depend on it (see our G2 reviews), they also provide us a ton of feedback. That level of engagement is rare and it’s a constant source of motivation to see and hear from our users how much of a difference the product makes for them. From a product perspective, you’ll get to tackle complex and novel problems, inventing the future of synthetic media, a very recent technology, for which the limits and use cases are constantly expanding.
