Textile is a lab dedicated to building and exploring new technology to help decentralize consumer applications. Our mission is to radically change the way people control their data with technology — we believe that the world’s most valuable future technology will be built on a new model where individuals have complete agency over the data they create.

We have become known for creating an early IPFS-based photo-sharing application, Textile Photos. More recently we have built a following around our suite of freely available tools to build apps more generally on IPFS. The suite of tools includes a decentralized database, real-time app data, communication tools, remote backup and recovery, identity tools, and encryption tools available over APIs and in cross-platform SDKs. Our technology already powers a diversity of applications from collaborative writing apps to patient-doctor chat apps.

From our work, we plan to support a network of applications, connected through interoperable data, that will allow users to own and control their data in a new way. Nothing like Textile has ever existed at scale before, and we now have the potential to rewire the internet and allow for new forms of apps and services.

We are a small, fully remote team (Twitter list) aligned in our vision to change the relationship between technology and personal data.

Are you passionate about technology and want to have an big impact on its future? Then join us! Our passion, vision, and product make for an exciting place where self-directed, collaborative, good people will thrive.
