Jobs at Darkroom

📱 The iPhone is the most important shift in photography since the advent of the digital camera. Help us build the tools for this new era.

We are a small team of photographers, designers and developers who love working on creative tools. We are building an independent business that is honest about its commitments, and a place for creative engineers to thrive.

By being bootstrapped, our incentives are aligned with the photographers we are trying to serve, not with investors who want a big return.

By focusing on real problems faced by real people, we’ve been able to thrive and offer market-rate salaries.

By holding ourselves to the highest standards, we’ve been recognized by Apple with an Apple Design Award, Best of the App Store, App of the Day, Editor’s Choice, and more.

We are constantly trying to improve our infrastructure and keep it fresh and up to date so we can maintain our position at the forefront of Apple’s technologies.

We value an environment that empowers individuality, empathy, and innovation, and we’re looking forward to what you’ll bring to the table.
