Sourcebits Studios are discrete practice groups with focus in specific areas from Mobile Enterprise Applications to Web Gaming. Each is headed by a highly qualified Studio Director who is responsible for driving their Studio’s projects from initial client engagement to final delivery.
Studio Directors are industry leaders in mobile, cloud, and UX design—from the former CEO of the world’s largest open-source mobile platform, to an Apple Design Award winner.
As a Director you’ll share completely in the success of your studio, and have full authority to run it as your own business unit—with unlimited potential. At the same time, you’ll have access to all of the resources Sourcebits provides as a global company backed by Sequoia Capital and IDG Ventures. Sourcebits gives an unprecedented level of support and trust to Studio Directors, and Directors return that trust by delivering spectacular service and results for their clients.
You’ll work with amazing people throughout the company who care as deeply about the success of your clients’ projects as you do. Because Studios work together, clients have access to the best minds in mobile, web, and cloud development across multiple platforms and disciplines. At the core of Sourcebits Studios you’ll find more than 400 Sourcebits employees, each whom bring their extreme passion and focus to client projects across a wide range of talents and skills.
We’re looking for a few people who share that passion and focus and can back it up with a track record of success. If you think you have what it takes to lead your own Studio, get in touch below to learn more.

Redeﬁning E-Commerce by Selling on Both Sides of the Brain
The world's best retailers use design and emotion masterfully to drive sales in their retail stores. However, most of today's online shopping experiences have all the ﬂair and excitement of a local library.
Sourcebits set out to change the face of e-commerce with an online shopping experience called Nerve. We created a UI that is exceptionally engaging and immersive, but extremely easy to navigate. The drag-and-drop interface lets users scroll through products, pull items off the shelf, and drop them into their carts — delivering the same satisfaction as a “real” shopping experience. The end result is a stickier shopping site that customers want to explore — which leads to more time on site and higher conversions.
Breaking Gmail out of the Browser
One of Gmail’s biggest original limitations was the inability to work offline quickly and easily. Sourcebits solved this problem by breaking Gmail out of the browser, with GeeMail.
GeeMail allows users to work with the familiar Gmail interface, but in an application that keeps working even you’re not connected. The application runs on Adobe Air, and is signiﬁcantly faster than Gmail’s official offline solution. The application showcases Sourcebits’ ability to build solutions that seamlessly integrate with existing data and provide a superior user experience.
Along with high-end Web apps, we also specialize in gorgeous, fully appointed websites.
Delivering the Web for a Legendary VC Firm
When Sequoia Capital needed a new corporate website, they called on Sourcebits to deliver a site that would be ﬁtting of their role as the leading venture capital ﬁrm in the Silicon Valley.
Sourcebits realized immediately that the project wasn’t about ﬂashy technology or showy design. Instead, we designed a minimalist site with a clean design that allows for engaging, interactive exploration, but makes Sequoia’s portfolio companies the stars. UI features like elegant hover actions and multispeed scroll enhance the user experience, but never dominate it. The end result is a site that showcases Sequoia and the companies it has helped build, rather than the underlying technology.
