Pre-Series A

Generate videos, slide decks, and podcasts from data for customer facing teams like Customer Success, who need to proactively present frequently to their customers for onboarding customers, product adoption, retention, renewals, up-sells, cross-sells, etc. Plaid, Google, Yelp, Pure Storage, HP, typically can only support 10% of their customer base using Customer Success professionals. The rest get reactive customer support.

In the time they create a presentation for one high-paying customer, they can create videos and slide-decks for all their customers including the thousands from long-tail or lower-account value segment of customers.

We package a virtual presenter with the presentations.

Engineering at Cast

Engineering team and processes

We are a team of fast moving developers, hackers, architects, and product designers. We like to ship code daily and turn ideas to product features within days. We maintain an extremely high bar for the quality of what we create and how we interact, We share our learnings, experiment with new technologies, and constantly test, add, and remove features.

You will be one of the first three employees, and have a chance to create an ideal environment.

Technical Challenges

You will work on enhancing our generative vector videos (patented technology) and make them more engaging, realistic, and delightful.

You will use program synthesis to generate realtime videos. Everything from the spoken language to the user interface is shaped on the fly based on device and orientations.

You will help reduce video generation time from a few seconds to milliseconds.

Projects you might work on
  • Contribute to a React App, Cast Designer to generate and publish videos and slides.

Working at Cast

We believe the best way to succeed as a team is to be transparent, have two-way feedback, and promote a culture of innovation that values and rewards risk.

We are driven by first principles, logic, common sense versus formalized policies. We are young, dynamic, and fast moving. And regardless of how big we become we will always value strong ideas versus who they came from.

Here are two quotes that describes us.

“Culture is simply a shared way of doing something with a passion.” – Brian Chesky, Co-Founder, CEO, Airbnb

“Customers will never love a company until the employees love it first.” – Simon Sinek, author, Start with Why

Diversity and Inclusion

From day one we wanted to have diversity in our company and yes including the cap-table and board! Our lead investor and board member is Shruti van dyke Gandhi of Array Ventures. The CMO of Girls Scouts is also an investor. Also, take a look at our product advisory board at: https://cast.app/cast-product-advisory-board

We think building a strong company means having a naturally diverse team.

We are obviously an equal opportunity employer and we have diverse investors and board members. We were part of Techstars and our batch was the most diverse group of entrepreneurs.

We are more focused on what we can do together versus as where you come from and who you identify as.
