Working at Flickr

Flickr lets people share their life in photos and is the best place to discover amazing photos and videos on the web. It's one of the most well known brands on the internet and is visited by over 90 million users every month.


Flickr engineering is based on the principles of rapid development, continuous deployment, and individual responsibility. We're looking for passionate and motivated developers to help us make Flickr bigger, better and faster.

Flickr is BIG

Flickr processes millions of photos and videos every day, with billions of photos already online. We serve billions of pageviews and more than 7 billion API requests monthly for over 75 million registered photographers.


As part of SmugMug, Flickr provides market-leading employment benefits.


We are located in one of the most beautiful places in the world: San Francisco; a short walk from Market Street, Union Square, the SF MOMA, and SOMA.
