About the Opportunity:
Stocksy is an artist owned stock photography and cinematography cooperative. (Think more artist respect and support, less patchouli.) We believe in creative integrity, fair profit sharing, and co-ownership, with every voice being heard.
We offer all employees a collaborative open floor plan, a generous vacation and benefits package, a fully stocked kitchen, and a relaxing rooftop patio. We work hard, we play hard, and we dare you to keep up! (Seriously, we’re talking solid nerf battles when the clock hits 5:15pm.)
Based in beautiful Victoria, Stocksy HQ operates out of the historic Market Square building.
