RoleManagement and Finance
We are Pixellu, a software company on a mission to simplify professional photographers’ lives. We are seeking a talented, detail-oriented individual to join our accounting team.
🚀 About Pixellu:
At Pixellu, we know professional photographers are frustrated with all of the tedious work required to run a successful photography business. Many get so overwhelmed, they end up quitting on their dream of having a photography career. That is why we create easy-to-use, time-saving software that simplifies photographers’ lives so that they can spend less time in front of the computer and get back to doing what they love.
Pixellu was co-founded in 2010 by two wedding photographers. Faced with the challenges of long hours and endless tasks, we began asking ourselves, “How can we save valuable time, make more money, and get our lives back?” Our answer was technology. We started Pixellu with the idea that we could make money by providing an honest service that helped photographers save time and live more fulfilling lives. We believed that, by focusing on a great product and great service, we could build a business that not only does well but also does well.
Team happiness is a priority at Pixellu and we are happy to say that our eNPS score is 92! Today, we are a team of 40+ team members spread across 10 countries, serving tens of thousands of photographers in over 100 countries.
