Play transforms the traditional design and development process by empowering teams to collaboratively design, build, test and share mobile products—directly from their mobile device.
Play was founded by four partners: JoonYong Park, Michael Ferdman, Eric Eng and Dan LaCivita, who all come from different backgrounds and disciplines. We all worked together for over 15 years at design and technology agency, Firstborn, which was founded by Michael in 1997. After creating hundreds of digital experiences for clients, we shifted our focus to rethinking how teams could design and build digital products, in search of a better way.
We’re on a mission, not just to build another design tool, but to create a new paradigm that empowers product teams to create more thoughtful and impactful digital products.
Play is an equal opportunity workplace. We are dedicated to equal employment opportunities regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, marital status, disability, gender identity or veteran status.
