Shutterstock is looking for top technologists to join our software engineering teams and help drive the future of our platform. You will be working with highly-motivated and extremely talented engineers on backend services with quality, performance, and scale in mind at every step of the way.

  • Able to clearly communicate to technical and non-technical audiences.
  • Has a good understanding of continuous delivery, writing unit tests, and automated testing.
