Our goal is to build the photo platform of the next 10 years, designed from the ground up for people's larger and larger photo collections, and today's photo taking patterns.
We have infrastructure scale (millions of full-res photos synced per day), cutting-edge photo science like nowhere else (3 level deep convolutional network type of semantic image analysis), and pixel-perfect design. We also have revenue and above average subscription rates.
We're looking for backend devs (Python + MySQL + Linux), sys ops (AWS) and Android devs. Sorry position descriptions are not posted yet, but if you're interested, ping us at info_at_everpix.com!
Also, I'd suggest adding (or switching to) a different model for pricing instead of mirroring Flickr's model. Something more oriented around charging for adding new photos so that if someone "lapses" on their subscription all their old stuff isn't suddenly inaccessible. For example, charging $100 a year for permanent image hosting for anything uploaded while under that subscription and then adding some sort of rate limit for adding new photos if the subscription lapses, or something like that.
Second, the site design is great but I think it could be improved significantly by making more bits actionable. For example, clicking on different parts of the pricing widget should take you to the appropriate page.
- REALLY needs an Android uploader
- I'm using Picasa on the desktop. The sync tool works if I direct it to my Picasa folder, but things like photo rotations aren't applied. My lens doesn't record orientation so I have to manually rotate some photos in Picasa - this info is lost in the uploader so some of my pictures in Everpix are sideways - this is a showstopper for me.
Solve those two things, and take my money!
BTW the onboarding user journey is first rate, as is the creative and design work - great job.

Are you planning to allow mass export? I understood that you are using propriety image compression, thus mass export might be quite heavy operation, However, it's a kind of showstopper for me, if you are not going to allow it in the future.
In the meantime, photos can be downloaded in full-res and with all metadata of course by "sets" from various places in the web UI.
