What defines a great Pangaea photographer? 
-------------------------------------------------------

1. A great Pangaea photographer knows everything there is to a photoshoot. He or she knows what equipments, light settings and props to use when given a list of photos that the team needs. An amazing Pangaea photographer can also create videos.

2. A great Pangaea photographer knows how to juggle multiple tasks. He or she is responsible for sourcing the ideal models, arranging the necessary environment and coordinating closely with the brand team to provide all necessary visuals assets. While the visual acumen is very important, deadline-oriented execution is equally as important. Because he or she will be working with multiple photo shoot at any given time, he or she should be used to fast-paced, startup environment.

3. A great Pangaea photographer is very, very creative. He or she should challenge the brand team on stretching its creative imagination and sit during web UX meetings to contribute his or her opinion on what's possible and what can go above and beyond. While Pangaea prides itself in building awesome products, much of its success depends on visually exciting our customers. It starts with visual assets.

4. A great Pangaea photographer knows where the visual assets are presented. Millions of consumers around the world will see his or her work, and it's very necessary to understand where the images are going. Will it be an ad on Instagram? Will it be a product photo on the website? Maybe it will be a offline event campaign for influencers. A good photographer understands directions. A great photographer understands context.

5. Typically, a great Pangaea photographer has :

---- Expertise or experience in conducting end-to-end photoshoot under an extreme time constraint. If we need a photoshoot within 2 days, how well can you execute?

---- Familiarity with web UX. Majority of the work he or she will be producing will be used on our websites. Therefore, understanding UX structure will be imperative.

---- Timeline-oriented mindset. Any past experience working with product managers in a high-pressure, fast-paced environment is a plus.

---- Enjoys taking dope photos even when no directions are given.

---- Is hungry and constantly learns new skills. This is the case with all Pangaeans.

Why are Pangaeans working on Pangaea? 
-------------------------------------------------------

#1. We firmly believe DTC (direct-to-consumer) is the better way to conduct online commerce. Imagine working on a product where only price and bullet points are important. We think it's more rewarding when we are able to present our unique and compelling products to the customers with an ultra-quality, end-to-end experience that we own.

#2. Everyone in world deserves better products at value prices. Traditionally, urban consumers in first-world countries got their first dibs on new, innovative products. Now, digital access and mature logistics are changing how people purchase around the world. We find it rewarding to be the equal opportunity artisans of the world.

#3. Personal growth. To broaden our multi-cultural mindset as a team, we offer free foreign language lessons to promote open-mindedness. We encourage everyone to purchase or borrow books from our mini library. Similar to how startups are evaluated, future personal growth dictates much of the current value.

If you are interested, we would love to hear from you. Feel free to reach out with questions or comments and looking forward to building together!
