Role Description

Our web team is two full-stack developers building the React & Node.js application that powers unsplash.com, working in collaboration with designers and the API team. As the third member of the web team, you’ll work on a variety of tasks. We strive to maintain a healthy balance between work that directly impacts the company’s product, and infrastructure work necessary to keep the codebase healthy as we move forward.

About Unsplash

Unsplash makes high-resolution photography freely available for any kind of use. Anyone can share photography that anyone can use however they want.

Today, Unsplash powers more products than any other visual search engine in the world, distributing photos to more viewers than any other platform, including Instagram. Millions of creatives of all types, professions, and demographics download more than 50 million photos per month, making Unsplash more used than Adobe, Getty, and Shutterstock combined.

Our API powers not just our own products, but also some of the largest creative platforms including Medium, Adobe, Squarespace, and Google, as well as products like Codepen, Product Hunt, Square, and Invision.

Despite Unsplash’s large community, our product team is a small group of engineers, designers, and data scientists distributed throughout the world.

The photos are free, so how do you make money?

Creativity is becoming mainstream and everyone needs access to high-quality visuals, whether it's for presentations, blog posts, social media, websites, or art. As this has expanded the size of the visuals market to hundreds of millions of creators, it creates a new business model to best supply this audience.

Due to the open nature of the photo license and the internet, Unsplash can distribute a photo further than any other visual platform in the world.

We work with our photographers and high-quality brands to distribute strong visuals to build brand awareness and associations authentically. This is a win-win for everyone involved: creators get access to high-quality free visuals, brands have a platform to distribute authentic and non-invasive visuals across the internet, photographers are paid, and Unsplash builds a business that matches our mission, team, and the future of creation.

Company Culture

Our team is made up of people who enjoy making things people love. We designed our company in a way to get as much of the stuff that’s not the creative work out of your way, so you can do your best work.
