Although the library itself is developed and directed by one person, it's surrounded by a thriving community of open-source and commercial users.
Millions of end-users use JUCE-based software every day, in the form of applications, plugins, embedded firmware, and who knows what else.. The library's pervasiveness in the multimedia industry means that pretty much every piece of music, film or TV made in the last few years will have involved a JUCE-based piece of software at some point in its production or delivery.
The JUCE job-market
Knowing your way around the JUCE library is becoming a marketable skill in the world of C++ jobs – see the "JUCE Jobs" section on the forum!
