About MarkUp

MarkUp is the leading visual commenting platform for images and live websites. It’s the perfect companion in your creative process to bring teams together, helping close the feedback loop for anyone that works with multiple collaborators on a project.

Within just 12 months, we have signed up over 50,000 users, winning two awards on Product Hunt. 2021 is already looking to be a bright year for MarkUp as we grow out our nimble product team.  

Our customers include some of the world’s leading brands such as Verizon, Herbalife, Getty Images, BDO, Colliers, AIG, Rosetta Stone, Johnson & Johnson, and Dolby.

We are owned and operated by our parent company Ceros— a design platform that empowers the creation of bespoke, immersive digital experiences without code. As we share the same DNA as Ceros, we’re also passionate about helping companies transform their approach to creating and managing digital content. 

We are well-funded and institutionally-backed by prominent investors including Sumeru Equity Partners, Grotech Ventures, Greycroft, and Starvest Partners.

The Role

Building a product that can ingest and render well any website is no easy task! We require the best-of-the-best, those who are ready to get creative and find solutions to complex problems across multiple browsers, stacks and platforms.

After a strong first year of nailing down product basics and building a foundational user base, we’re now expanding the product in numerous ways. These include but are not limited to building out our paid tiers, integrating with a multitude of other products (Asana, Jira, Trello, Slack, Figma, etc.), and improving upon the overall user experience with greater stability and performance of the MarkUp product. Our goal is to make MarkUp an integral part of anyone’s creative workflow. This is not just about making marketing or creative teams more efficient. It’s about empowering content collaboration across the entire organization. 

The MarkUp codebase is 92% TypeScript, comprising multiple services and packages, predominantly NodeJS based. We use libraries like React, Express, Lerna, Webpack and Jest. We believe in using the right tool for the job, our infrastructure runs on NodeJS, Redis, AWS Aurora, Kubernetes, Terraform and Ansible on AWS.

The Team

As part of the MarkUp team, you’ll be working with a small, cross-functional group of the most talented people you’ve ever worked with. We hire only passionate and creative people with a proven and unquestionable ability to execute, and every member of the team is equally responsible for moving the product forward.

We have a dynamic company culture that collaborates daily. We care deeply about the user experience, and we debate passionately about our ideas. When you work at Ceros, you check your ego at the door, and you aren’t afraid to be honest, especially to yourself. We take our jobs seriously but ourselves not so much -- whether it’s cracking jokes in the chat room or poking fun at the Ceros CEO’s atrocious spelling.
