✨ About us ✨

PhotoRoom provides photo editing software powerful enough to create outstanding images yet simple enough to be used without any training. We leverage deep learning to translate pixels into objects, drastically simplifying non-creative tasks such as removing backgrounds from images.

Our mission: enable entrepreneurs and small businesses to compose images that stand out.

Founded by Matthieu Rouif (10 years of experience in mobile apps, built apps used by 100+ million users) and Eliot Andres (4 years of experience in large-scale computer vision), PhotoRoom was selected by Y Combinator in 2020. Talented engineers, designers and marketers have joined the team since then, coming from Apple, Algolia or Google among others.

Today, PhotoRoom is profitable and is used by more than 5 millions of users every month. We improve our product and our technology with the support of world-class experts in the field like Yann LeCun, Roxanne Varza or Holger Seim. PhotoRoom was featured by Apple as one of the most innovative photo apps in recent years.

As a small tight-knit team, our priorities are impact and iteration speed. We ship new versions every week and talk to our users daily. There is nothing we enjoy more than working side-by-side with another team member to improve our users' experience.

Become one of the first hires in a fast-growing start-up and make your mark on a product used by millions of people.

✨ Your life at PhotoRoom ✨

PhotoRoom is used and loved by millions of users on iOS and Android. Time has come for us to develop a web/desktop version (we receive daily requests for that). We already developed a proof of concept and the goal is to gradually offer the same editing experience on the web as on iOS and Android.

- You own your work from A to Z: it goes from working on the architecture and coding features, to polishing top-notch interfaces in order to bring a delightful experience to our users.
- You get fast feedback from our users and iterate quickly (we ship a new version of the app every week). You follow the usage of the product and make decisions based on that.
- You work within a small multicultural team composed of 14 passionate, friendly & committed folks.

Technologies we use (we don't require you to know them before joining): React, TypeScript, Next.js, WebAssembly, Vercel, WebGL.
