Come create with us!

Moment is a collection of photographers, videographers, designers, and engineers who believe the world is a better place when you get lost and follow your lens. We started on Kickstarter by making lenses for phones… but now we do more than that. We make gear, develop apps, and guide trips that help people to get out and follow their lens.

We’re always looking for people who want to build a company that matters. Through the customers we touch, the work we do, and the impact we leave behind.

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 30 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 delivering 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. One of our recent offsites was to Zion National Park, Utah.

In between the offsites we break the tri-mester 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 25 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.

+ Equity in the company.
+ A salary.
+ Medical or $550 a month to do what you want.
+ A free Moment Trip every year.
+ Free Moment Gear.
+ Annual equipment budget of $500 for your own gear.
