empowering you to create the content that connects us
We believe in the power of video — in its unparalleled ability to reach and connect people. And we believe that video, like life, is more captivating and rewarding when seen from multiple perspectives and shared in the moment. We want to bring people together to create and consume video content that matters.
We’re Creating Something Great
We think big — big growth, big product improvements, big impact — but we stay nimble, recognizing that we reach greatness through agile changes. We prioritize what’s important, letting data guide our decision-making. We refuse to stagnate.
We Learn From Our Customers
We work not for our customers but with them. We strive to create simple, accessible solutions for our customers’ needs, and we do this through actively listening to them, empathizing with them, and working alongside them. We win when our customers win.
We Build Each Other Up
We are a team, one whose members are committed to helping each other grow and succeed. We work collaboratively rather than competitively, highlighting others’ wins. We foster healthy relationships and continuous personal development to ensure everyone flourishes.
We Are Open And Honest
We are open to debate, open to feedback, open to changing course. That means speaking up — to and for each other — and doing so with respect and integrity. It also means admitting mistakes and having the hard conversations, knowing they make us better.
We Win Through Diverse Perspectives
We value having multiple points of view, not just in our videos but also in our decision-making. Seeking out different perspectives allows us to challenge our thinking, bringing nuance to our understanding and ultimately leading to the best business outcomes.
I get excited about designing simple solutions for complex tasks. I strive for quality and efficiency in all that I do. I’m a music nerd and a foodie. When I’m not working I’m spending time with my family, my pets, walking, kayaking or taking a nap.
I’m leading the software development team in Switzerland. I’m also involved in the product definition, taking care of selecting the right technical solutions to answer market needs.
By 2014 — before Meerkat and Periscope and Facebook Live — Switcher co-founders Nick and Dan were all in with live video. For four years the guys had run an agency that helped businesses create and stream online video. But they’d noticed a problem: Going live — and doing it well — was prohibitively expensive for most businesses. Their clients kept losing steam when they saw how costly and tricky the video equipment could be.
Nick and Dan set out to change that. Partnering with fellow co-founders Ernesto, Matt, and Gabe (a video app developer in Switzerland), they launched Switcher Studio, a mobile video-creation platform, later that year. Switcher helps creators and companies produce stunning, polished live shows with the devices they already owned. It could sync up to 4 iOS devices (now 9), letting creators switch angles, edit live, and stream anywhere. Within the year, Facebook Live launched — a major milestone in bringing livestreaming to the masses — and Switcher Studio was named an official Facebook Live launch partner.
Switcher continues to grow. We’ve added new partnerships with Microsoft Stream and LinkedIn. Our original team of five has grown to 40+ team members, with offices in Louisville, Kentucky, and Yverdon-les-Bains, Switzerland. And our original passion for live video has spread as well. Switcher now has users creating amazing videos in more than 118 countries, and we think that is just the beginning.
