Careers

Come create with us!


Moment is more than a job, it’s a journey to build a company that matters. Through the customers we reach, the work we deliver, and the social impact we leave behind.


We started this journey because we believe that the future of photography is in your pocket. What began as a Kickstarter project in 2014 has grown into the best products in the world for mobile photography. Making your phone a better camera is just the start.




Why Moment


We believe that building a great company is about fostering a team of people to deliver above their individual abilities. To do this we want to create a culture where people can make decisions, be empowered, and deliver their best work. We live by three values:


+ Deliver on our promises.

+ Listen patiently, act quickly.

+ Desire to improve.




Where We Work


Wherever you want. We are a 20 person team that is spread around the world. Most of us work out of our Seattle studio, but physical location is secondary to your love for mobile photography and your ability to deliver exceptional work.


We are building our culture to be remote as we recognize mobile photography happens wherever your camera takes you.




How We Work


Three times a year we spend an entire week together building deeper relationships, getting better, and following our lenses. Our last offsite was to Lake Quinault, WA.


In between the offsites we break the semester into bi-weekly sprints. Relying on tools like Slack we stay connected through chat and the occasional phone call. This allows us to focus on our work with minimal distractions. 


Different than traditional companies we are not functionally organized, instead we rally around a handful of core areas that we want to be the best in the world at. It allows us to create culture where everyone is empowered to make decisions and go faster. It also means that each team is a mix of different disciplines, providing creative growth for everyone on the team.




Who Works At Moment


We are a team of 20 that is passionate about mobile photography and empowering people. Each of us brings a unique background, which creates for a deeper, more diverse set of perspectives.


What bonds us is the quest to improve. We take great pride in our individual work and the collective results we can deliver.

Compensation


We keep it simple.

+ Everyone receives equity in the company.

+ Everyone receives a salary.

+ Everyone received $300 per month for medical benefits.

+ Everyone receives $2K per year to travel the world with their camera.

+ Everyone receives $500 a year for their own equipment.

+ Company off-sites three times per year.

+ Unlimited vacation.

If you are looking for a long list of stuff, then you should look somewhere else. Our goal is pay people well and create the best place in the world to work.




How To Apply


We are always looking for new people to join the team. More important than ability we are looking for people who are passionate about mobile photography, which means don’t forget to send us your Instagram account.
