Come work with us! You’ll love it.
Stocksy is looking for a Front End Developer to join our growing team.

About us…
Stocksy is an artist-owned stock photography + cinematography co-op run by relentless creatives and risk takers. We are motivated by a shared love of visual art, working together to inspire and elevate design that challenges convention. Because every artist, photo, and video at Stocksy is hand selected, our collection stands worlds apart from other stock agencies.

What we offer...
We love what we do — and it's evident in our workplace.

Awesome environment - Work downtown in historic Market Square in an open rustic workspace that includes a patio to escape to in the dog days of summer. Woof! We're also dog friendly.

Vacation - We believe and support healthy work/life balance and live up to “work hard to play hard” by offering Unlimited Time off to our team members (including 2 weeks off every Christmas for an office closure).

Stay healthy - We keep a stocked kitchen with healthy snacks, caffeinated beverages and other indulgences; cyclists can store their bikes in an on-site secure storage facility. We also offer stand-up desks to keep you active even when you’re working.

Great benefits & perks - Enjoy full medical, dental and extended health coverage (including MSP) along with a tuition reimbursement program.
