Medium

We make Medium: A Publishing Platform.

 
 
Medium is rethinking how ideas and stories are shared with the world. We believe:

– Great ideas can come from anywhere
– People create better things together
– Design matters at a deep level

We also care deeply about how media shapes the lives of individuals and the decisions of society — and we think it can be better.

We have a world-class engineering and design team, which we are looking to grow slowly and deliberately. Let us know if you’re interested.
