Twenty20 is bringing stock photography into the modern, mobile age.  Our global community of over 250,000 creative mobile photographers have contributed over 45 million photos for sale, making us the largest crowdsourced commercial image catalog in the world.  We sell those images to companies like Google, Uber, Thought Catalog, and other leading brands/startups/agencies who are looking for a more authentic alternative to traditional stock imagery.

We are a small, autonomous, 7-person team based in Los Angeles, Marina del Rey working as part of the larger Envato family.

At Twenty20, we're working hard to build a marketplace that connects amateur and professional photographers to brands and agencies that want to buy photos of real people, having real emotions, doing real things.  We have tons of massive challenges in engineering and product over both a short timeline as well as over a longer time horizon. We work with massive amounts of unstructured data, and we’re constantly learning and building new ways to help our customers tell their stories with images from our photographer community.

Every team member touches every part of our code base, and we care deeply about fostering an environment that allows us all to teach and learn from each other, regardless of your role or area of expertise.  Our engineers work closely with product owners and designers to understand our unique community of artists and buyers, and use that understanding to build highly scalable systems, software, and tools to make them happy and productive.  

We work to solve hard problems around photo classification, community management and data analysis, just to name some of the domains we deal with on a daily basis. Lucky for us, we already have an amazing team. We’re looking to add a few members -- if you think you might fit in, we’d love to hear from you.
