The Songbird Mission

Current media players such as iTunes, Windows Media Player and Zune are proprietary, single-vendor, vertically-integrated silos, excluding any competitive services and devices. If Web browsers had been designed like current media players, Internet Explorer would surf only and run only on the Xbox.

In contrast, Songbird is a media player that is as open as a Web browser. We’re building the open source, open standards, open Web user-agent for digital media. Our vision comes from Tim Berners-Lee’s original vision of the Web:

“Keeping the medium and the content separate is a good rule in most
media. When I turn on the television, I don't expect it to deliberately
jump to a particular channel... I expect my television to be an
impartial box. I also expect the same neutrality of software...”

We believe that Songbird dramatically lowers the barriers to entry for new services and devices, and will augur a vast, diverse and innovative Media Web.

Life at Songbird

We believe a creative environment invites team members to pursue their talent and passion. Our office is a beautiful brick-and-beam full floor in San Francisco’s SOMA district. Our kitchen is fully stocked from Whole Foods 24/7/365. Many of our employees walk, bike or CalTrain/BART/MUNI to work. All ‘birders receive a competitive salary, benefits, and stock options.
