Provide leadership, coaching and direction to a team of product managers
Named Australia's Coolest Company for Women & one of the Best Places to Work
We’re so happy you found us. Since you’ve come this far, it’s safe to say you’re curious about our story and what career opportunities exist, so we’d love to start by introducing ourselves.
Then & Now
Our story starts in 2006 with three founders in a Sydney garage (no, we’re not kidding). Born from a desire to earn a living doing what they loved, with the flexibility to do it from anywhere, Envato set out to create an online community for buying and selling creative digital assets. Nearly 13 years later, we’re profitable and still totally bootstrapped. This allows us to stay super experimental and totally focused on the best interests of our authors & customers around the world.
We’ve built marketplaces where anyone can buy and sell the creative assets they need to complete their projects faster. Our community can now buy millions of different kinds of assets on Envato Market , or subscribe to the #1 unlimited subscription service for creatives, Envato Elements . Every day, these products continue to help everyone from freelancers to small business owners and agencies get their creative projects done.
While we are known and loved within the digital professional community globally, where our authors have earned over $750 million , we also want to be a place where anyone can Make with Envato. Alongside Market & Elements, our portfolio also includes Milkshake , a website builder for Instagrammers, Placeit , a smart template tool for logos, mockups, graphic design & more, Mixkit , for free stock footage and animation, and most recently, Twenty20 , a stock-photo subscription service.
With over 600 people globally, we have offices in Guadalajara, Mexico & Los Angeles , alongside our funky Melbourne HQ. We pride ourselves on being super remote friendly, with a staffing population just as diverse as the global community that use our products. To keep this sustainable as we scale, we support people to work from anywhere, whether that’s the beach in Croatia, on the Mornington Peninsula, or from their living room.
