The boundaries of the Internet are moving beyond the desktop computer into tablets, mobile phones, televisions, smart-watches, cars, and every other electronic medium imaginable. It is becoming impossible to predict the context in which your content may be viewed. This creates a major problem for web images as they require special preparation and optimization to be displayed properly in each situation.
imgix solves this problem by providing a service that makes all of your images responsive. With imgix, you get the power and flexibility of responsive images without having to build the complex infrastructure it takes to support them. Simply configure where your images live and then use the domain we provide you with to access them. Getting started is that easy.
Our company was founded in 2012; our CEO, Chris Zacharias, was developing a lightweight video player for YouTube when he came up with the idea for imgix. He went through Y Combinator shortly thereafter, and imgix was born. We are a small, but growing team of passionate folks looking to change how the internet sees visual content. Our team comes from companies like Google, Xerox, Foursquare, and Dropbox, and we work with companies like Zillow, Kickstarter, Eventbrite, and The Guardian. Every day at imgix is an opportunity to be a part of something great, and we're looking for some dedicated team members to help bring us there.
