Welcome to the Panda Squad!

We are a San Francisco based company working to shape the future of visual storytelling and communication using the power of voice. That's why we're helping you turn the stories you tell into short animated movies staring you! Panda puts the power of a full animation studio in your pocket and makes incredible storytelling accessible to everyone.

Our tight-knit and growing team comes from a range of diverse backgrounds and industries. In former lives, we built self-driving cars, designed buildings, and covered breaking news events. Together, we’ve spent over a year making Panda a reality and now we need YOU for the next revolution in how people tell stories.

As a Product Manager at Panda, you will work closely with our CEO to implement our roadmap that empowers our users to tell meaningful stories in a way that has never been done before. Working on our product team, your ideas will be integral to helping us figure out how to turn the human voice into an incredible new visual communication tool.
