Facet powers visual storytelling at scale through creative and supportive AI. We are a collective of engineers, product designers and artists, aiming to redefine and humanize the creative process. Our thesis is simple: While media becomes increasingly personalized and topical, the process of making compelling visual art remains frustratingly manual. We use machine intelligence to amplify human creativity, allowing artists, designers, and creatives of every stripe to take control of their process and focus on exploration and art direction.
Facet is currently in Early Access and is being used by thousands of creatives around the world. You can see examples of their work on Instagram and Behance. Facet is backed by Accel Partners, Slow Ventures, Basis Set Ventures, South Park Commons, and a diverse group of designers, product thinkers, and AI luminaries from Google Brain, Salesforce, and FAIR.
About the role
Visual storytelling is at the heart of what we do. We’re looking for a multi-disciplined Production Designer to create stunning content that informs and inspires early users.
Facet is a browser-based, pro-grade image editor with collaborative features. Our tool elevates visual design through features like auto-layering, batch editing, and aesthetic transfer, and more. Our users are designers, photographers, retouchers, visual artists, and more. So, your audience will have as discerning an eye as yours, for taste and quality.
As a Production Designer, you’ll help identify the right storytelling mediums, collaborate with internal partners, and then, produce the story. That means creating mixed media content, including but not limited to: product tutorials with your technical input, product demos featuring images you’ve sourced, and motion graphics for the website. Not only will you use the tools you are already expert at, but also, you’ll learn how to create in Facet. You’ll be the ultimate pioneer as you use Facet to create visuals that the world should see.
Our product seeks to unmask a new era of artistic capabilities, and you’ll be at the forefront of this. Your day-to-day will include partnering with A-players across Marketing, Product, Community, Design and Engineering. Together, we’ll craft the Facet story and shape the next era of cutting-edge design tools.

Working at Facet
Consensus goals, independent execution. We value collaboration on goal setting and technical/company direction while giving individuals latitude and ownership over how these goals are achieved.
Marathon, not a sprint. Creative AI is a rapidly blooming space, so we need to move quickly to build product and grow our market. We all juggle multiple roles and we’re in it for the long haul. At the same time, we understand downtime is important. We don’t have an explicit vacation policy, but unlike other startups we expect you to gauge your level of stress and take one when you need it.
Sane experimentation. We're exploring new territory and building a new product category. We need to experiment and try new things while maintaining a stable foundation for our future work. Our product should make the world better, and we shouldn't break anything we’re not sure we can fix. Facet is partnering with artists and designers to develop a powerful, ethical approach to our technology, democratizing artistic expression in a safe, responsible way.
Creative + technical. Facet is about making technology a partner in the creative process. We enjoy product design, engineering, and research—but also photography, music, art, and cooking.
Diverse backgrounds. We’re solving a completely new problem and need a diverse set of viewpoints and voices to fully understand its scope and extent. We’re building a company and culture that can responsibly and respectfully integrate a plurality of voices.
Tea and baked goods. We’re really into tea and baking & think these are good things. You might disagree with us (cf. “diverse ideas”), but you should be aware.
