Lead Product Designer
Piñata Farms is a team of 25 who have been responsible for some of the biggest cultural and tech successes of the last 10 years, spanning mobile, social, video, AR, gaming and music. We are backed by the top Silicon Valley VC's and some of the most influential strategic investors in media, tech, and pop culture. We have been quietly building this company for over a year and are currently in beta with very promising early engagement metrics and strong buzz in the high school and college communities ahead of our launch this winter. Our app is a completely novel creative video platform and will be the next great cultural phenomenon -- in fact, you may have already seen some of our work racking up millions of views for Diplo, Marshmello, Kendrick Lamar’s team, Benny Blanco, Lil Dicky, the Jonas Bros…even getting this comment from “🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣” from LeBron.
While we are staying confidential about our product until launch this winter, our mission is driven by behavioral research into how today’s connected communities work. From our insider’s view of digital media and social communities, we’ve helped establish new norms and know what’s coming next. More than half of our team is dedicated to developing novel and proprietary computer vision technologies that differentiate us from the same old commoditized and shallow video apps. We’ve brought the best technologists and best people in pop culture together - PF will change the mobile video game forever.
