We are located in downtown San Francisco, close to BART, Caltrain, and a really good sandwich place. Because of COVID, we are working remotely and will be remote-friendly going forward even after we can return to the office. Employee benefits are comprehensive (401k, medical, dental and vision), perks are generous (catered lunches, paid rides home, the occasional team outing), vacation time is flexible, parental leave is available and highly encouraged, and salaries are commensurate with experience. We also provide employees with anything they (reasonably) need to be effective in their work: funky keyboards, standing desks, a desk cactus, and maybe even a laptop. The troposphere is the limit.
imgix is the leading provider of on-demand image processing for websites and mobile apps. imgix’s API gives developers the power to perform image transformations at scale — from simple crops and compression to changing color profiles and adding watermarks — in real time before an image is served.
