Help create a world where creators can make a sustainable living through storytelling

Top Five Reason You Should Join Tales

Waking up in a cold sweat realizing you have to join the team

Fun

The intersection of media/technology is inherently fun. You are not building a payment processor here (nothing wrong with that if that's your cup of tea).

Innovative

You'll be building mixed media and interactive content creation tools creatives have never seen. This is why veteran interactive writers around the world (TellTale, BioWare, Ubisoft, EA, Blizzard, PocketGems, Nexon, Choice of Games, etc) have already started creating original franchises on our platform.

Impact

You’ll be the hero of creators who will be able to make a sustainable living by reaching their fans directly on our platform. When they succeed in creating household names, you'll know you had an integral part in bringing that to life.

Risk

We’re early enough where you’ll have a hand putting us on the map but far enough along that we have largely solved product/market fit.

Upside

What’s the value of building a more profitable, engaging version of Kindle or Netflix? We’ll let you decide.

What We Believe

Level Playing Field

Too often we see media distribution gated by "expert" gatekeepers. We believe success should be dictated by talent + hustle + data; it should not be a reflection of who you know. We build systems that level the playing field.

Antifragile Systems

We don't just solve the problem, we always investigate the root cause so we can make systemic improvements. Every customer service message is a valuable piece of feedback that leads to growth.

Growth Over Titles

Our founders don't have fancy resumes; we're used to being the underdogs. We're an amazing team because of what we can accomplish. We will always prioritize hiring a team member with high growth potential vs. an impressive title.

Trust & Leadership

We believe creatives and developers can be self-managed if provided the right environment, dashboards, and tools. Come here if you miss building something with your own 2 hands. Not the place for big titles and armies of reports.

Bias Towards Action

Prove it, toss it, make it work, make it right, make it fast. There's no need to have lengthy debates on ideas that are easy to test. We'll pick faster release cycles over overengineered solutions any day,

Unexpected Insights

We believe many of the best insights come from connecting disparate ideas together. We like well-rounded people who have interests outside of work so we can tap into inspiration from unlikely places.
