Descript HQ is in San Francisco, and their AI research team, Lyrebird, is based in Montreal. The company is the special company that’s in possession of both product market fit and the raw materials (passionate user community, great product, large market) for growth, but is still early enough that each new employee has a measurable influence on the direction of the company.
