Transform the future of hardware design with us

Zoo is leading a revolution in hardware engineering, and we’re looking for curious and ambitious self-starters to join us.

A collage of images from our team hanging out together, some goofy and some with us collaborating on work problems. Most are from our first team retreat (KittyCAMP) that took place October 2023 in Malibu, California.

A team of tech enthusiasts and problem solvers

Our team is made up of founders, entrepreneurs and tech enthusiasts with a shared motivation to push boundaries, embrace challenges, and turn ideas into reality. We bring expertise from 3D Printing, Hardware Manufacturing, Computer Graphics, Machine Learning and beyond, and we’ve experienced firsthand the challenges our customers face with the current state of hardware design tools.

Working at Zoo

(verb) /work·ing ət zü/

We’re a globally-distributed, remote-first team with the flexibility to maximize our impact and manage our schedules in ways that are most suitable for us.

We operate autonomously while fostering team collaboration via our weekly team syncs, lunch & learns, gaming sessions, and our various Github repos and Slack channels.

We’re empowered to take ownership, express opinions, and make decisions, and we see our team’s impact come to life everyday.

We work hard and we nerd snipe, and we do so with a genuine sense of camaraderie.
