Our team is growing. Welcome Radhe, Jacob, Jørn and Rune!

Since our November 2017 launch we have experienced strong growth in our user base and our community. Building a community of developers who love using Sanity when working with content is at the very top of our list – and something we constantly work on!

Building a strong team is a prerequisite for creating strong user experiences. It gives us the resources to keep on creating an engaging product that we communicate clearly. We are therefore pleased to announce four new hires – four passionate individuals that add great new drive, perspectives and skills to our team, continue to develop our culture and that will contribute to move us forward, bringing the best of Sanity to our user community.


If you would like to consider joining our team, take a look at our open positions.
