careers at playbit

Come be part of a small, focused team who deeply care for each other and our craft. Playbit is building a new operating system for software creatives. We believe that the future does not limit your logical computer to your physical hardware.

With Playbit, your computers are always available and can even be shared with others. You can have as many computers as you like, without the need for dedicated hardware. This is accomplished by workspaces which are like virtual machines, synchronized across all devices for all participants using local-first technology. Your workspaces can even be accessed on the web, powered by WASM & WebGPU.

At Playbit we believe that great work comes from trust and passion, not just academic excellence. We believe in being effective and efficient; working hard but not working more than necessary. Life is about more than work and we respect that in each other. We believe that great things can be built without "doing the grind." We believe that caring for each other makes a fantastic team which ultimately leads to great products.

We are just getting started. Adventure awaits.

the playbit vision

A better OS for software professionals & hobbyists. For people pushing the status quo of computing. What Mac OS X was, but catering to today’s needs.

At the core of Playbit is the “Workspace”, a space for a topic or project. Workspaces can be shared with other people and are fully stateful. It is like having many computers inside your one computer.

Workspaces are fully stateful and can be suspended and resumed at any time without any data loss — apps, open windows, scroll positions, text selection, files etc are all persisted with a workspace.

You can access your workspaces on any computer.

A shared workspace can be a simpler substitute for version control like git: with integrated snapshotting at the filesystem level you can quickly explore or roll back older versions of your workspace. You can even duplicate—or “fork” if you will—a workspace in case you want to try something without affecting the current workspace. This can also be used for template workspaces. Beyond workspaces, this system provides services fundamental & relevant to today’s software, like data syncing APIs, payments APIs, etc.
