My name is Ryan Gilbert and I'm the QA Lead at Descript. I decided to join Descript because they were doing something totally new and original in the world of media creation. The way they were putting together a variety of tools into this creative suite was just something that I don't think we really had a language for before.
And we're developing features where I try to find an analog to something I've used, say in ProTools or Ableton Live, or Logic, or whatever, and then I realize that there isn't an analog to what we're building, and it's just really exciting.
It's a very creative workspace, both in the sense that people here come from creative media production oriented backgrounds, but also just our internal sort of approach to problem solving is very creative and everyone has input. And the product is really evolving right before our eyes.
And so the energy is really high and we're always really excited about what's happening next.
