Lifestream is a AI-enabled video analytics company that has its sights set on building the best next generation of consumer intelligence and data. Through our industry-leading video-technology system, we bring to life authentic human behaviors and experiences for the world’s leading brands.
Our history began with carrying an inflatable sofa around the streets of London and asking people to share their stories, on video, with no predetermined set of questions or responses. Just a conversation about what mattered in their lives.
Since the days of an inflatable sofa, we’ve built technology and innovative approaches that stand at the intersection of data and empathy – illuminating trends, behaviors, experiences and insights that would otherwise go undetected. With our video technology, brands have gained access to data, analytics, and insights at scale which are more authentic and valuable – the next frontier of consumer intelligence.
Welcome to the future of consumer intelligence.
At our core, we exist to highlight true human behavior from the spaces & places it naturally occurs — and our methodologies are developed to highlight the true human experience.
When our technology intersects with data from real consumer lives, we open a window into insights that more authentic and valuable than other research methods could ever offer.
Authentic video data reveals what people do, not just what they say they do. It means we can illuminate trends, behaviors, and insights that would otherwise go undetected.
We are hellbent on providing the most valuable consumer intelligence platform today. And, we believe that’s impossible to do without thinking about what’s next. We are constantly improving and expanding our system’s capabilities.
Integrity is the defining quality of our people and our work. Whether it’s our contribution to corporate social responsibility and research, or our relationships with our clients and our employees, we strive to act truthfully and authentically. We’re unafraid to meet life with a high standard of ethics.
We believe in the importance of continuous improvement and pushing the boundaries of the norm. Curiosity is at the forefront of our business and we strive to improve our product, our people, and our technology.
Innovation is hardwired into our products and our people. As pioneers in video technology and analytics, we are shaping the next frontier of consumer intelligence, putting human experience and behavior at the heart of businesses and brands.
We are fascinated by what technology and human endeavor can achieve. We build and improve our technology to aggregate human diversity in a way that uncovers its shared patterns while doing justice to its heterogeneity. We combine the best of human and machine intelligence to deliver new data streams and better solutions to our client’s business needs.
We have no open roles at this time, though are always interested in connecting with skilled individuals who are interested in what we do.
As our name hints at, Big Sofa’s story began with carrying an inflatable sofa around the streets of London, with no predetermined set of questions or responses – simply asking people to share their stories on video, and a conversation about what mattered in their lives. What we realized is that observing and understanding people is far more powerful than leading conversations and asking questions, and that there is an incredible amount of human experience data available that brands want access to.
Since the days of an inflatable sofa, we’ve built technology and innovative approaches that stand at the intersection of data and empathy – illuminating trends, behaviors, experiences and insights that would otherwise go undetected. We use that data to help businesses optimize the human experience, whether that is in-home or out-of-home.
Big Sofa brings to life authentic human behaviors and experiences for the world’s leading brands. With our award-winning video technology, brands gain access to data, analytics, and insights at scale which are more authentic and valuable – the next frontier of consumer intelligence.
Locations: Big Sofa is a ~35 person company with the majority of people working out of London, UK. Our Americas team is growing in size, and we all work remotely. We’re open to hiring in the greater Philadelphia area; the Charlotte NC area; or remote.
