Job Description

Finding the right professional filmmaker or photographer is a hard problem. In the US, the annual market is $15B, with the biggest player owning less than 1%. SmartShoot seeks to solve this problem by finding the right, high-quality professional for brands and consumers that need personalized work. In 2013, our creative community earned over $4M on our platform, shooting in every state in the US and in many cities around the world. Having made a profit last year, and with the support of some of Silicon Valley’s best investors and advisors, we want to take these great customers and build to scale.

We’re looking for self-motivated individuals to join our small engineering team as we grow our business. You’ll be a key member of a small, flat team of smart engineers architecting and building out the SmartShoot platform for SEO, lead gen and management; contract, billing, and payment systems; digital asset review and management; and partner integration. You will have a large impact on the future systems we build and room to grow with us as we scale. The role is hands on coding in a collaborative environment where you are expected to bring your A game to the table and contribute to the architectural decisions and implementation recommendations. We are building new features in a fresh Python stack as we migrate away from our PHP origins. We are looking for talent that has a strong computer science background, agnostic about languages and who is excited about building a web application that will be a next-generation internet landmark.
