What if you could help millions of people use a tool that has a real impact on their everyday life? That's the opportunity with Envision's small but passionate team. We build impactful, design driven tools for humans that leverage the latest in computer vision technology so everyone can have faster access to information. We wish to be the pioneers in enhancing and augmenting human vision that unlock potential beyond what one can see.
Envision empowers visually impaired people to become more independent by speaking out the visual world around them. The Envision app and Envision Glasses use artificial intelligence to read all kinds of text from any surface, recognise faces, describe scenes, find objects, scan barcodes, detect colours and so much more. It is the best all-in-one tool in the pocket of a blind or low vision user for all of their visual recognition tasks.
Over the past year, Envision has organically grown to thousands of paying subscribers, all around the world. 🌎

Envision Glasses brings our award wining software to smartglasses, enabling an unprecedented experience of hands-free and unobtrusive experience of accessing the visual world. 🕶
The core backend of the Envision App and Glasses has grown significantly in the past year. The backend consists of Firebase and is built on GCP. The backend hosts our ML models and also consists of micro-services that power the App and Glasses. There's a fair amount of automation that needs to be happen and new services need to built on top of it.
Also, Envision currently uses Webflow for all our web development needs. We do have a few really exciting projects that we'd like to build with Webflow and integrate with our existing backends.
