1 year ago we tested the first photo upload to an app we called Codename. A little less than 3 months after that, in October, we launched Instagram to the public. Now, 9 months later, over 6 million people have shared more than 100 million photos with one another on Instagram. Thanks for being a part of the Instagram community, and here’s to 100 million more photos!
More than 6 million users have joined the Instagram community, and we’re just 4 people. Now we’re looking for extraordinary engineers and designers who want to help us build and scale one of the fastest growing companies in the social web. You can read about what we’re looking for in candidates on our Jobs page, but first we wanted to share a few photos with you to introduce ourselves and show you what it’s like to work at Instagram. Take a look through our photos, check out our Jobs page, and send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you think you’re a good fit for our team!
Hi there! L to R: @mikeyk, @shayne, @kevin, @josh
Our users are awesome — they make all kinds of cool stuff based on Instagram, like scarves. It’s exciting to make things for them.
We do fun things together, like go to the Grammys
We have these in our refrigerator (along with a lot of Mexican Coke and Red Bull)
We get espresso delivered to us every week from the best micro-roasters in the US (@kevin and @josh used to be baristas)
Sometimes we have bacon maple glazed donuts in the morning
So many great lunch spots around the office, including HRD, a Korean-American diner featured on the Food Network
This is our (growing) camera collection
This isn’t actually our company truck, but maybe one day…
Have good ideas? Help us design and build Instagram
