Society6 is a print on demand marketplace whose goal is to empower its community of incredibly talented artists to create and sell art online through over 60 unique product offerings. Our focus is on creating high quality products that bring joy into the homes and lives of our large and growing customer base. We take pride knowing our artists make a living by selling their artwork and designs through Society6.
Our team is located in Santa Monica, CA, and we’re looking for the next generation of tech leaders who understand that simplicity and reliability are aspects of a system to be carefully calculated with every decision made. The ideal candidate is passionate about engineering, great user experiences, and is excited to work on initiatives that help build our business.
