ABOUT PIXELZ

At Pixelz, we help brands and retailers effortlessly retouch product images for e-commerce to boost their online sales and reduce returns.

We've spent years investing in people and developing software to create post-production’s greatest ever timesaver, S.A.W.TM, a digital production platform and traffic control system powered by AI and specialized retouchers. The result is a retouching service offering unprecedented speed, consistency, and scalability.

We’re trusted by leading brands in every category and have retouched 30 million product images and counting. Pixelz was founded in Denmark but is now found locally, thanks to offices in 6 countries hosting a team of 700 people globally.

Our vision is to change the way product image editing and studio management is handled in organizations the world over, leading to transformational change for our customers, from the bottom line to effective time management. Driven by Pixelz core values, we are passionate but always ‘Let Data Decide’, we ‘Build Genuine Relationships’ by treating colleagues and customers openly and honestly and we ‘Own it” by empowering each other to act when we see opportunity and taking pride in our work, presenting our ideas and challenging the status quo. Our goal is excellence: in design, in business processes, in time management, in employee quality of life.

THE ROLE

If you are familiar with the pains of managing post-production for editorial imagery and if you are excited about leveraging technology to change the way it’s being done, here is a unique opportunity for you!

During the last 10 years, we have been focused on building the leading platform and retouching service for e-commerce that helps studios optimize the entire process from capture to online. We’ve made it, and now we want to leverage all our learnings and a suite of innovative technologies to build the leading service for editorial imagery as well!

Managing the retouching workflow for editorials is typically a very manual process with inefficient communication, lack of transparency, and production bottlenecks. This is no different from the pains of e-commerce operations, but there are added complexities in creating editorial content and those are the challenges we want to tackle. To do that, we need an experienced Product Owner to take the lead and help us refine the platform and services in close collaboration with our clients, leading fashion brands and retailers.

In this role, you will be leading the launch of the first editorial retouch service that leverages AI and other automation technologies to deliver high-quality editorial content faster than ever before. On top, we are offering workflow management tools and communication interfaces that allow studios to streamline their workflow and remove tedious manual tasks, and instead let them focus on creating great content that elevates the brand.

This role requires deep knowledge of and experience with managing the post-production for editorials. We assume you have a background in photography and have photo studio management experience. You are curious, analytical and technology-driven, you are excited about finding ways to automate and streamline workflows, and you would be great at working closely with both clients and internal teams. Taking ownership is natural to you and you thrive in executing several projects with ambitious deadlines simultaneously.
