London, UK
Posted on Thursday, August 10, 2023

We’re a London-based tech company on a mission to remove barriers between people and technology. To do this, we’re crafting intuitive, seamlessly connected products that improve our lives without getting in the way. We think tech needs a change. In a world where products all look the same, we don’t want to just make the same thing as everyone else. What we want is to create iconic products that we’re proud to share with family and friends. And that means we have to do things differently. This is the spirit that drives and sustains everything we do.

“Nothing is the most hyped tech company in years” - GQ

“Nothing has brought a breath of fresh air.” - Hypebeast

“The most exciting startup in consumer tech” - Input

Here at Nothing, we’re building a world where tech is fun again. Remember a time where every new product made you excited? We’re bringing that back.

To get there, we’re gathering the creative and the curious. Those that are passionate enough to question the old and embrace the new. In return, you’ll be part of a movement. A disruptor in a world that’s craving change, contributing to a global ecosystem of products that bring joy to people's lives.

Our radical spirit spans seven offices around the globe. We've sold over 1.5 million products worldwide, including Phone (1), which was listed on Time Magazine's Best Inventions of 2022 for Innovative Smartphone Design. In March 2023, we released our most powerful earbuds yet, Ear (2), and in July, we launched the highly anticipated Phone (2), marking our US debut and our first second-generation smartphone.

Our mission is backed by renowned institutions like GV, EQT Ventures and C Capital as well as leading entrepreneurs and creatives like Steve Huffman (CEO and Co-founder of Reddit), Kevin Lin (Co-founder of Twitch), Swedish House Mafia, and Casey Neistat.
