WHO WE ARE

We have offices around the world and are running operations out of Hanoi, Vietnam. Pixelz employs 350 staff in Hanoi and another 300 in Da Nang, Vietnam; and we collaborate closely with external strategic collaboration partners that are considered as highly integrated part of the Pixelz production team.

We run a Digital Lean Production with a virtual assembly line, where photo editors on several locations are specialized in doing a specific part of the final product sent to customers. This unique and highly technical approach in creating visual content offers great transparency in the workflow that allows the lean philosophy to thrive.

We put a strong emphasis on innovation, continuous improvement, and making data driven decisions. Our staff are our most important resource and we work diligently to provide them appealing Western-style office spaces, soft skill & technical training programs and professional opportunities to grow, both within our company and as individuals.

We are proud of our core values that are daily exemplified by our employees. Thus, if you cannot identify yourself with our three core values below, Pixelz is not the right match for you.
