Jobs

We’re a fast-moving, well-funded internet publisher that is pushing boundaries in the way content creation and technology converge. Yet our business is simple: We blend original, in-house, licensed and freelanced content with the highest quality photography on the market to deliver an overall informative and entertaining experience. And we do so on a massive scale, with three comScore top ranked consumer sites: Zimbio.com is a Top 10 Entertainment News site, StyleBistro.com is Top 10 Fashion & Beauty site, and Lonny.com is a Top 20 Home Design site. Our offices are casual places where good ideas and strong opinions are pretty much mandatory. We encourage everyone to brainstorm and share any and all new ideas with each other. There are no cultural walls: the engineering team collaborates with the marketing team who collaborates with the editorial team and so on. And we’re all obsessively tuned-in to pop culture and fashion. We’re located in San Carlos, CA and New York City. We offer competitive base salaries, health/dental/vision benefits, and stock options.
