We are a real-time, on-demand image and video processor and server. We serve billions of images a day for some of the largest sites on the Internet.

JOB DESCRIPTION

Software Engineer: Developer Tools

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 programming generalist with a passion for building software used by other developers. 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 users 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.

By iterating and improving the imgix SDK offering, you'll have 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: 

  • Grow and improve our portfolio of open source libraries and integration tools
  • Work with the product team to identify, prioritize, and implement feature improvements or new products that offer high value to our users
  • Help cultivate a growing developer community that is excited to use imgix and the SDK across a variety of industries
  • Pioneer higher standards for how developers construct, and interact with, images on the web
  • Monitor trends in the developer ecosystem to determine when new libraries or tools would be of benefit to imgix’s customer base

What we're looking for:

  • Prior engineering experience building tools used by other developers
  • Comfortable with JavaScript or any other language used on projects listed in https://docs.imgix.com/libraries
  • Excitement to learn new languages and frameworks, and a particular focus on adopting language specific idiomatic design patterns, test methods, and package deployment processes
  • Empathy for developer experience, and an interest in building tools that optimize for it
  • Desire to build healthy communities around imgix’s open source offerings
  • Nice to have: prior experience with modern web frameworks (React, Vue, etc)

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.

If you'd like to help us build the future of visual media on the Internet, submit your resume / CV and cover letter for consideration. Principals only please. We look forward to hearing from you!

INTERVIEW PROCESS

  1. Initial phone conversation with engineering manager to learn about candidate experiences and share details about company/team/position.
  2. Take-home assignment: tightly scoped (1-2 hour) project to assess how candidate approaches packaging code used by other developers. Project can be completed in whatever language candidate feels comfortable with.
  3. Four virtual interviews with rest of engineering team: will include a mix of technical and non-technical exercises. Technical exercises will follow a "pair-programming" style of interview to closer mimic day-to-day working dynamic on the team.

DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION

At imgix, we hire smart, motivated people who are aligned with our goals, support and empower them, and then trust them to do what they do best. We believe diverse teams build better products and have hired people from different backgrounds who bring varied experiences to their work every day.
