VSCO® is an art and technology company empowering and inspiring people everywhere to create, discover, and connect. Founded in 2011, VSCO is headquartered in Oakland, CA, with an additional office in New York City, NY. VSCO also acquired Denver, CO-based Artifact Uprising® in 2014.
We equip modern creatives with tools and build experimental projects to innovate and inspire. Every product we create must be something we love and would use. At VSCO, we set the bar high for ourselves, and aren’t content to land any lower.
Strength in Unity
If we win, we win together. No matter if you are a Developer, Designer, Writer, part of the Community Development or Support Team, we work together for the greater good of VSCO and the creative community.
The Working Life
At VSCO, everyone works hard but also takes the time to enjoy life outside of the office. Balance is really important to us, and we have flexible time off and competitive medical leave benefits to support our employees and their families.
Whether we are featuring top-tier creatives on VSCO Journal, hosting workshops, photowalks, or gallery exhibitions, supporting the creative community is of utmost importance.
We value generalists over specialists, spaces over tabs, and people over process and tools. Our technology stack includes Ansible, AWS, Chef, Ember, Go, Java, Mongo, Node, PHP, Rabbit, Swift, Ubuntu, Vagrant, Varnish.
When it comes to design, UI, and UX, we aren’t interested in the status quo. We push boundaries in order to create compelling experiences.
We don’t have “users”; we have creative peers. Our Journal Editors, Support, and Community Development teams are integral in growing a creative community with an “artist first” mentality.
