About the role

imgix is building the future of visual media on the Internet. It operates the premier solution to deliver impactful, engaging, highly responsive, and super fast imagery to eyeballs around the world. The service consists of a top-tier image delivery platform tightly coupled with imgix's proprietary, on-demand image processing pipeline. It provides customers with great design flexibility while reducing the engineering investment required to serve state-of-the-art visual media. imgix enables our customers to greatly increase the value of their imagery and get back to building awesome things.

We are looking for a full stack engineer to help our team expand our collection of platform-specific integrations for imgix. You will be joining the team responsible for managing and iterating on imgix’s open-source SDK — comprised of client libraries, plugins, and other helpful tools. The individual components of the SDK span a wide variety of programming languages, frameworks, and platforms; providing an easy way for customers to integrate imgix into their own services and applications. While the ideal candidate won’t know all of these languages already, they should feel comfortable learning as they go with support from the team.

In this role you will have an opportunity to iterate on the ecosystem of integrations available to imgix users: think browser extensions, plugins for various e-commerce platforms, or anything that will help get imgix into the hands of more users such as designers, builders, and content creators. This is an opportunity to make an immediate and tangible contribution to a product that powers the processing and delivery of image content for some of the Internet's largest sites and most popular apps.

What you'll be doing:

  • Build, test, and deploy integrations that will allow users to easily integrate media from imgix into various platforms on the web
  • Work with the product team to identify, prioritize, and implement feature improvements or new products that offer high value to our users
  • Collaborate with the design team to construct intuitive user experiences for interacting with imgix services

What we're looking for:

  • Prior engineering experience building integrations or web applications
  • Strong knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript/Typescript
  • Experience with, or interest in learning, any other languages used on projects listed in https://docs.imgix.com/libraries
  • Empathy for user experience and an interest in building tools that optimize for it

Nice to have:

  • Experience working with e-commerce or content platforms such as Shopify, Magento, Contentful, etc.
  • Experience with SQL or any relational database management system

imgix is a remote-friendly company with an office located in downtown San Francisco, close to BART, Caltrain and a really good sandwich place. Employee benefits are comprehensive (401k, medical, dental and vision), perks are generous, vacation time is flexible, and salaries are commensurate with experience. We also provide employees with anything they (reasonably) need to be effective in their work.

Why you should join imgix

At imgix, we are building the "graphics card" for the Internet. We provide image and visual media processing on-demand via a URL-based API. We connect to a customer's existing images (e.g. S3 bucket) and then provide a domain they can use to access those images dynamically, creating any number of sizes, crops, adjustments, and other variants of those images. Think of it like Photoshop's "Save for Web" feature but for a million images at a time.
