Remote friendly
India, India
In today's world of limited attention spans, the only way to get someone's attention is by making your message relevant, timely, and, most importantly, visually-appealing. Every business is trying to get our attention and this problem gets harder each day as we split our time between more apps.

Businesses are now using banners and videos at every customer touchpoint, beyond the obvious use in ads. Open your 5 favourite apps and see how many creatives they use in them to get a sense of the scale of creative content that teams have to make. Multiple products, offers, languages, platforms,....all make content creation a massive challenge for businesses that Photoshop and other pre-Internet era software were just not designed to solve.

Rocketium is building what today's fast-moving, high-growth businesses need - rapid creation, massive scale, intuitive collaborative features, creative analytics and more. Rather than focusing on Adobe or competitors, we focus on our customers - some of your favourite brands. We help them grow by using visual content to run more relevant campaigns faster with a 50x lower design effort.
