Where will your work resonate?

What we believe​

At First Resonance, we believe we’re on the verge of a new dawn for the way we build hardware. A day when the power of artificial intelligence, connected devices, and skilled workers combine to manufacture paradigm-shifting technology faster, cleaner, and smarter than ever before. Where data flows from human-to-human, human-to-machine, and machine-to-machine. The things of science fiction made real.  

To realize this vision, we are  empowering the next generation of hardware builders to break through the barriers set by 20th century systems and processes, so that the boundaries of what we build tomorrow are not constrained by the limitations of today’s tools.

Because we believe that, together, we can build a brighter future.

We exist to empower builders to ship hardware -
Quickly and Reliably

Origin Story

If you can’t find the tools you need, you sometimes have to build them yourself. That’s how First Resonance came to be. As former engineers who have worked at companies like SpaceX and NASA, we needed a platform to support rapid engineering and manufacturing iteration. We felt the pain of terrible UIs and systems that slowed us down and knew there had to be a better way. So we formed First Resonance.

You can find First Resonance nestled in the ever-shifting skyline of downtown Los Angeles—the same skyline we’re working to help modern manufacturers change. We’re engineers, artists, foodies and music fans, and we’re on a mission to build the platform that powers the future.
