Pond5 is the world’s most vibrant marketplace for creativity. We operate the world’s largest collection of royalty free footage and other media assets, with over 60,000 contributors in over 150 countries. As we seek to provide more value to current and potential customers, we are looking to add world-class talent to our team who can help us with the design and implementation of a brand new marketplace.
The ideal candidate strives for excellence, is a continuous learner and a natural collaborator, and is eager to join a small, nimble “startup within a startup” working on an exciting new project, guaranteed to be a revenue generator. Our team is based in Santa Monica, CA, but we’re also open to professionals working remotely. If you are passionate about writing good code, understand modern web architectures, are knowledgeable in best practice software development processes, and have the right mindset to keep up with our rapid-growth, high-volume pace, we want to hear from you. This is a cool opportunity to be involved from the start in building a rational, data-driven marketplace experience. You won’t be inheriting someone else’s tech debt. You’ll get to create something brand new, from scratch. And we want to hear your opinions about how to do it!
This is a permanent, full-time position operating out of -- or directly managed from -- our Santa Monica office. You must be authorized to work in the United States. Occasional travel may be required to one of our other offices. All candidates may be asked to undergo a practical test to demonstrate their abilities.
