Welcome to the team! Here are some resources to get you started as you think about building successful campaigns for us in the coming year. This is a mixture of things you asked for, information we think might be useful, and unpublished/in progress things that give you an idea of how our current messaging is running. If there are any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to me. Looking forward to working with you!
Imgix is the leading provider of on-demand image processing for websites and mobile apps. Imgix’s API gives developers the power to perform nearly any transformation they need to an image hosted online-- from simple crops and compression down to complex things like changing color profiles and adding watermarks-- in real time before an image is served. This means images load faster and look better on every screen while saving bandwidth and storage space.
Imgix is venture backed, with about $10 million in investment, and was launched through the famed Y Combinator accelerator program. Its customers include: Dropbox, Reddit, Lyft, Kickstarter, Coursera, Bonobos, The Guardian, Brit + Co., Bustle, and many others.
Chris Zacharias is founder and CEO of imgix. Prior to that, he was one of YouTube’s earliest web developers. He created YouTube’s HTML5 video player and Feather, an ultra-lightweight version of YouTube that loads quickly in parts of the world with slow Internet connections. These experiences drove Chris to recognize a need for tools that let developers build great visual experiences without adding bulk to their apps. In 2010, he founded imgix, a real-time image processing service that enables businesses of all sizes to deliver rich visual content with highperformance and easy setup.
