    At Journal, our mission is to help people focus and bring new ideas to life.

    Much of our personal and professional lives run on apps. Yet these tools create boundaries between our activities, require constant checking, and have enabled a culture of interruptions.

    Journal will give individuals and groups a focused “space” to find, remember, and share all the information they need to have fun and do good work.

    We’re looking for awesome new people to join our team. We value communicating new ideas with first drafts, using diverse perspectives to guide decisions, and trusting each other’s potential to solve big problems.
