Careers

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 40 person team that is spread around the US. 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.

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 40 that is passionate about 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.

+ 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.

Visual Designer (Creative Direction + UX)

Be an experienced visual designer on our content team. The role is bigger than the title.

On one side you’ll be working with filmmakers, photographers, and writers, creating compelling advertising campaigns for the gear, apps, and trips we offer in the Moment Shop. This includes the creative direction and advertising production for the platform of choice within each campaign. At scale, this introduces interesting design problems to be solved based on how familiar customers are with our brand. On the other side you’ll be a UX / UI designer, directing the traffic you bring into becoming customers, subscribers, and engaged readers. Here you get to re-image our online publication and how our 1M subscribers can rely on it as a resource for both inspiration and learning.

We’re looking for a designer who is both creative and methodical in their approach. And like all the designers at Moment, you’re able to go from understanding the problem through to shipping with final visual details.

What you will be doing:

  • Understanding our customer, why they buy, why they subscribe, and why they return.
  • Creating unique advertising campaigns with writers, photographers, and filmmakers.
  • Producing all of the ads in each campaign.
  • Working with analysts and engineers to publish the ads and landing pages.
  • Concepting and prototyping new publication features and testing them with the team.
  • Working with engineers to iterate from prototype to final features we ship.
  • Reading data and coming up with ways to improve conversion and retention.
  • Customer service, because everyone on the team does a day per month.

You need these qualifications

  • Publish your work. We believe that the best designers are part of the design community, putting their work out publicly for others to learn from.
  • Designing and shooting (yes you have to be good with a camera).
  • Visual talent. Sorry we can’t teach this, but we do have a high bar for aesthetic detail.
  • Experience working in a content production or creative / advertising agency.
  • Experience designing and creating effective social posts, especially IG stories.
  • UX experience working with engineers, shipping new features, and tracking their results.
  • Have motion graphics skills or willing to learn quickly.
  • Direct experience working with content creatives is a plus.

Why Design At Moment

We believe design wins. Co-founded by a designer, we’re building a talented team of designers who help one another get better. You can see some of our product work here on Behance, our constantly evolving e-commerce UX work here on our site, and some amazing things people are capturing with our products here.

Most importantly we teach you how to independently ship, measure, and iterate. We believe that design wins and therefore teach designers how to go beyond solving the problem to making fast, iterative decisions.

Compensation And Benefits

The Moment culture is about ownership so the more you take on the more you make. Otherwise we keep compensation simple...

  • Equity in the company.
  • A salary.
  • Medical insurance or $550 per month to do what you want.
  • A free Moment Trip every year.
  • Moment gear.
  • A $500 stipend per year to spend on your own equipment.
