At Heroic Story, we're building the AI engine for creative work.
These are the postings we know about, but there's always a million things happening and there are tons of things we could use help on that we don't even know we need help on yet. If you're curious and smart, and have an idea of how you might be able to contribute but it's not on this list, send us an email anyways. [email protected].
our co-founders - the brothers Rosenkrantz. We've shipped VR games, built virtual influencers on Twitch, and launched popular entertainment across all media including film and television.

We're a remotely distributed team of engineers, designers, product managers, community builders, gamers and storytellers from all over the world (everywhere from Los Angeles to Austin, New York to Germany!) We're all united in the dream of turning the creation of stories into a cooperative game, and helping storytellers — the most under-rewarded creators in history — capture more value from their creations.
As a team we are tackling two major problems.
1) Writers and artists create much of the value at the beginning, but capture very little of it at the end.
We think AI technologies, when combined with thoughtful interface design and community co-development, can flip the script and offer creators new ways of building connected experiences and earning with their fans.
2) Creating stories is lonely, frustrating, and emotionally exhausting.
What if the future of worldbuilding were more social and connected? Instead of work feeling draining, it felt supportive and energizing, even therapeutic?
Kindness, curiosity, proactivity, feedback-rich, transparency, and conquering challenges are some of the key words that define us. We're incredibly collaborative and embrace failure and experimentation. We bias towards cool side projects and interesting people over impressive credentials.
We're building a team that can amplify each others' creative energy and make every single day feel fun and rewarding; the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
