About Limitless 👋
At Limitless, our vision is to free the human mind from its biological limits. Limitless is a web app, Mac app, Windows app, and a wearable that records what you've seen, said, or heard and makes it useful. For example, if you’re in back-to-back meetings you don’t have time to take notes, track action items, and draft follow ups - Limitless automatically does all of this for you.

The product we have today is just the first step toward our audacious vision. We have raised over $33m from top-tier investors including Sam Altman, First Round Capital, Andreessen Horowitz, and NEA to help make that vision a reality.

Why Limitless 👀
Working at Limitless will be the most impactful job of your life. Our team is small and everyone plays a huge role. The work you’ll do will have tremendous impact on not just our company, but how the world works. We believe the best version of the future is one in which we augment - not replace - human intelligence with artificial intelligence. This is the key to unlocking humanity’s full potential, and you will play a critical role in helping us get there. Come join us.
