Minted opened up shop in 2007 to offer independent design artists a place to promote and sell their work. Since then, thousands of artisans have sold their wares online to consumers all around the world.
They are one of the earlier examples of the crowdsourcing model. And it is something that they still use in their business today. People submit their work online where it is voted on and then the highest-rated works are sold.
Working for Minted means you are working for one of the largest online art curators and dealers out there. It means you would get to have a hand in spreading great artwork. And you get to do it with a team of talented and passionate art lovers just like yourself.
Minted puts a strong value on highlighting the accomplishments of its people. They are proud of the people they help and proud of the people that help them achieve their goals.
The company is all about providing the capability to discover new things and giving hope to talented people who have struggled to find a place for their work. They value people who are committed to helping with the cause. And when they find the right people, they are all about promoting from within.
Minted highlights 4 main principals that staff members become very familiar with during their time with the company:
Minted believes that great ideas can come from anyone or anywhere. They really emphasize thinking outside of the box for creative solutions and fresh ideas. And when you've got an idea, share it. They even have special boards and areas for idea sharing and generation.
Past and current employees have pointed out the beauty of working somewhere where the employees support the mission. Because when you have people who believe in the mission, you get people who want to add to that mission in some way.
Whether it's innovating new technologies, streamlining processes or changing the way that the artists get represented, this is a group of highly motivated and passionate people that love what they do.
The executive team takes a keen interest in all employees. From entry-level to senior-level employees, everyone has the same learning and growth opportunities. Whenever a position becomes available, it is almost guaranteed that internal people will be considered before an outside search commences.
Minted is made up of a very tight-knit group of workers. But it is a very warm, welcoming and inclusive environment as well. New hires love the happy hours and social events to get to know everyone a little better. Weekly social events create a very open and honest workspace.
Communication from top to bottom is also very open and efficient. People at Minted cut right to the chase, so to speak. There is no time wasted on unnecessary processes. That definitely doesn't mean that the occasional brainstorming session isn't kindly received.
If you are someone who enjoys collaborative environments, then you just might fall in love with Minted. The workspace is very collaboration based. You are almost expected to solicit and consider input from others. Staff is also expected to offer constructive criticisms as well as take them. It's what keeps everyone operating their best.
Aside from being a part of one of the world's largest art markets, you'll also be a part of a company that offers amazing benefits. Minted has comprehensive health care packages for employees, along with stock options, a 401k plan, and performance bonuses.
Some really great extra perks are:
Additionally, when artists come to visit the office, which is prone to happen weekly, you get to see first hand the positive influence you've had on their lives. That joy radiates throughout the entirety of Minted.
And the office itself is another huge perk to working at Minted. The headquarters is located in the Embarcadero neighborhood of downtown San Francisco and overlooks the bay. Not only is the location of the office beautiful, but the inside of the office is as well. An arts and design company was never going to allow their office space to be anything but expertly designed, were they?
The interview process with Minted has been reported to be a little longer than most, taking around a month. The reason for this is that Minted really wants to get to know you first, they want to make sure that you will be right for their very dynamic culture.
But they will definitely put your skills to the test. Software people come prepared to talk and show code. Some current and former employees have stated that is was an exhaustively rewarding process.
The Organization’s MissionMinted supports the personal development, creativity, and careers of the best independent artists in the world. Who defines the "best?" We have built meritocracy to uncover exceptional creative talent as objectively as possible. We pride our selves on eliminating bias.
