You’ve got questions and we’ve got some answers for you. If these don’t help you can always email us here.

What stage is the product at?

WOMBO launched on the app store on February 28th. We've crossed 50 million downloads in less than 3 months, making us the fastest growing consumer app in Canadian history.

This is just the beginning.

We have several incredible features on our roadmap and are happy to share details during interviews.

Where is WOMBO located (Can I work remote)?

Most of our team is located in Toronto. We ideally want new hires to be based out of or willing to relocate to Toronto. However, we are ok with remote employment for top talent.

Currently we are only hiring remote employees in U.S. & Canada due to timezone convenience.

What’s the interview process like?

We’ll likely do a quick 30-minute phone call just to make sure we’re on the same page. After that, we’d love to work on a process together that feels fair.

Generally, there are two options:

1. Our preferred situation is that we get to work together for several weeks on a project (of course, we’d pay you whatever you think is fair). Often working together for a bit is a great way to determine whether there’s a good match as future teammates and it can give you a lot of transparency. We understand, however, that’s not always possible for everyone. (4 weeks).
2.
2. A formal but practical interview--no trick/puzzle questions. (1.5-3 hours)

What is work/life balance like at your company?

We usually leave work around 6 PM to have dinner with friends or family. As an early stage startup, we don’t want to hide this reality to prospective candidates: raw hours make a big difference in the impact we can make right now. This won’t always be the case but it is at present.

We often find ourselves working later on in the evening and on the weekend, but it’s mostly driven by personal ambition. We don’t have any expectations of anyone to do so.

Have you raised any money?

Yes - we have raised $5.7M

Some of our investors include Shervin Pishevar, Josh Buckley, Global Founders Capital, Sound Ventures and Guy Oseary

How does this product technically work? 

Our technology is based on GAN (generative adversarial networks) methodology. The model is already trained to detect facial features/motions in our “driving video” (the video performance behind each song in our library) and apply them to a user’s still image to animate it.

As a result, the user receives a video output of their still image performing a lip-sync/dance to the chosen song.

What’s the technical stack that you’re working on?

We are using Python for our back-end, Swift 5 for iOS and Kotlin for Android.
