Build something real

By working at Shared_Studios, you will help expand a global network of physical structures that bring communities together – Portals.

When someone steps inside a Portal, they’ll be connected with someone they would never otherwise meet. Inside, they can talk, dance, or play – as if in the same room.

Together, these Portals form a network that stretches around the world.

Grow with us

Shared_Studios is growing and evolving, and we want to help our people grow, too.

To fulfil that potential, we need people eager to learn, adapt, and become the best they can be. We offer a wide range of employee benefits, and emphasize flexibility to suit each team member’s needs.

A social network you can touch

Portals form a global network of physical locations, each hosted by a Curator who connects their Portal to their community and their community to the world.

Think of Portals like a library. Neil Gaiman, the author, wrote that “Google can bring you back 100,000 answers. A librarian can bring you back the right one.”

A Portal is like that. The internet has no shortage of voices, but a Portal Curator will help you find the right one. The Portal carves out time and space to hear each other’s stories.

And a global community

In Portals, we’re creating a global public infrastructure. Portals are a resource for every community – and every community has something to give, and something to receive.

To build it, we need your help.

Developing a public resource on every continent means speaking the languages of numerous communities — literally and metaphorically.

It means building systems to support an ever-growing communications infrastructure.

Join our multidisciplinary team

We’re a growing family of artists, philosophers, entrepreneurs, and technologists dedicated to a common mission.

Most of us work from Brooklyn’s New Lab – but not everyone. Emma and Lela, our curatorial team, like to brag about the surf in Moro Bay, California, where they “work.”

When you join Shared_Studios you join a close-knit global community. By the time you’ve settled in, you’ll have friends from Gaza to Honduras, Sweden to Nairobi.

To have an immediate impact

Shared_Studios has a bit of a problem. We have thousands of ideas and only 24 hours in a day.

Everywhere we look, we see exciting possibilities, tricky challenges, and communities that deserve access to the Portals network. For every opportunity we chase, there are five more we leave behind.

The good news? Every task you work on is a chance for you to make a huge impact. Every project is a chance to shape the organization. There’s no shortage of what we can achieve together; we’re just getting started.


Help us build something that lasts — a human infrastructure for our interconnected age.
