WORKING AT IMGUR
One Imgur family.
Like many tech startups, we've got humble beginnings. We went from one dedicated guy writing code in his dorm room to a scrappy team of about a dozen people.
Imgur is organized into tight-knit teams that form one cohesive, fantastic whole. Whether you're a nerd, jock, introvert, or extrovert, you're welcome here. Our company culture is a mesh of casual, silly, supportive, and honest. Our leadership is transparent in everything they do, and “corporate speak” doesn’t exist.
Come grow your career, indulge your hobbies, and be your best self at Imgur.

OH WAIT, A FEW MOAR PERKZ
We know you've got dreams and ambitions that stretch beyond the cubicle walls, and we want you to pursue them.
Every year we give you a big ole chunk o' change to spend on your interests, be they travel, hobbies, academic, sports, or something else entirely. Here's a look at how a few employees spent their fund.
Charisse, People Ops Manager
I chose to use my passion fund on the human that I chose to spend the rest of my life with. On October 1st my husband boarded a plane for a 24 hour flight to Ethiopia to help build homes for the elderly, help women rehabilitate from prostitution, and help kids in school.
Isaac, Technical Support Rep
As a Canadian who has lived across the country from my parents for 6 years, I have not been able to spend many special moments with my family. Last year I worked with my father on a special plan. I would fly up and surprise my mother when she arrived home from work on her birthday.
Kevin, QA Manager
I'm a pilot and an engineer at Imgur! One of the cool benefits we get for working here is a passion fund which can help pay for things you're passionate about (If you think that's pretty cool, you should check out our job openings.) As most pilots will tell you, we're passionate about flying and it is not cheap, so it makes for a pretty good fit.
We love our users and our users love us.
Imgur's content is created and curated by members of our community. As a result, we've formed a tight-knit bond with the millions of Imgurians across the world, and we are proud to say the love is mutual.
Massive thankS to Imgur for making my dream comes true!
I just wanted to say a MASSIVE thanks to you imgurians! A bit more than a year ago following a few personal issues I decided to do something silly: to quit my job to create the game of my dreams - having no prior experience making games professionally. It was a bold decision, sometimes it was hard but I never looked back. A week ago I finally launched my game on kickstarter (not quite ready for a full release): it was funded in just 16 hours! Without imgur I would never have made it! So a massive thanks to all the people that supported me over here.
To the imgur chat developers
Thank you. Thanks to you and your work I've found someone very special. It started from casually talking on imgur chat to me moving to another country to be with the person that I care so much about. It sounds silly but without your work and imgur chat I don't know if I would have ever met her.
See what its like to be an imguraffe
