Product Photographer

San Luis Obispo, California, United States Part-time

Product Photographer

iFixit is a small giant in DIY repair. Over the last several years, our online reach has exploded—we’re now helping more than 10 million people learn how to fix their electronic devices and other belongings every month. Our repair guides and Q&A forum are totally free: no ads, no paywall, and no login required. We sell repair parts and tools to help accomplish the repairs detailed on iFixit.com. And our quality parts and professional repair tools have developed into a brand in their own right—with professionals and DIYers seeking out our products at major retailers online and off.

We’re looking for a Product Photographer to help us grow and improve our product catalog with visually descriptive product photographs.

This is your opportunity to make a huge impact at a growing online retailer. We’re on a mission to teach the world how to fix everything they own—and we want you to join our team.

  • Photograph our parts and tools in context
  • Touch up raw product photos in photo editing software
  • Follow existing design standards and, equally importantly, help develop better layouts and guidelines

Qualifications:

  • Self-motivated, proactive, and mindful of deadlines
  • Extreme attention to detail
  • Able to work independently
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills

 

This position is located at our San Luis Obispo, California headquarters. Part-time, full-time, and temporary summer employment opportunities are available and hours are flexible. Please specify whether you are seeking part-time, full-time, or temporary summer employment in your cover letter.
