Who are we?

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. Contributing to a global ecosystem of products that bring joy to people's lives.

In less than four years, we’ve sold over 2 million products worldwide, including Phone (1), which was listed on Time Magazine's Best Inventions of 2022 for Innovative Smartphone Design. In 2023, we released two second-generation products: the powerful audio companion Ear (2) and the highly anticipated Phone (2), marking our US debut. We also launched CMF by Nothing, our sub-brand focused on making wonderful design accessible to all. In March 2024, we welcomed our third smartphone, Phone (2a). A powerfully unique device that enables even more people to experience the best of Nothing innovation.

Our Culture

Radical spirit drives everything we do and spans seven offices around the globe. Our 4 core values sit at the heart of everything we do:

Be the change - we are proactive, action orientated and drive change, stepping outside of our comfort zone

Pride in the product - we obsess over detail, always improving and staying curious about tech and the world

Thrive on Diversity - we welcome differences, listen & communicate with respect and collaborate to build strong teams

Survive - we empower everyone to act as an owner and understand the business as a whole which leads to delivering exceptional results
