Engineering at Imgur
Engineering team and processes

Our engineers work in dedicated two week sprints. They work extremely close with product management and designers. Because our CEO is an engineer himself, don't be surprised if he sits down next to you and helps bang out code. We practice agile throughout engineering.

Technical Challenges

We have over 250M users and everything we build instantly touches millions of people. We operate across four platforms and introduce new product features to all four. Scaling video and personalization has been a lot of fun and a huge challenge as we continue to build on that. Additionally, we are engineering a new vertical of products that will continue to help Imgur reach new people and play with new technologies.
