At GIPHY, we run a lean ship and a small team, so you would be contributing in a big way. We are early-adopters and are among the first to integrate new technologies into our products in a meaningful way. For example, GIPHY was chosen by Apple to be one of the featured iMessage apps for the iOS 10 launch. The ideal candidate would always be on the lookout for ways to leverage new frameworks and platforms to get All of the GIFs in all of the places.
Our products are a direct reflection of our unique and fun culture, and people really, really love working here. We can offer a creative environment made up of of humble, funny, GIF-loving internet enthusiasts.
