We are looking for inspired individuals who live their passion. If you’re smart, a fast learner and excited about achieving excellence through technology and data-driven optimization, we are just the place for you. Action Factory is a digital publishing company building media brands by matching evergreen written content with engaging high-quality video.  Publishing has existed since cavemen first painted on walls…what makes Action Factory unique is our mixed media model, proprietary audience engagement engine and thematic focus on under-developed content categories.

We’re a team full of all kinds of people, from geeks who love Phish to kiteboarders who experience Burning Man. What matters most is that you rock at what you do, you’re passionate about what WE are doing, and you do your work with a smile. Oh, and it would be nice if you liked dogs. They tend to hang out in our office most days.

We are actively looking for software engineers, content editors, designers, videographers and public relations experts.


We are looking for a full stack engineer who is inspired by our values. You will work with other engineers, designers and product managers around the creation and management of Action Factory digital assets.  You have a strong ability to engineer massively scalable systems comprised of a variety of 3rd party technologies and like to quickly learn new technologies.  While our software is written in Ruby, we use whatever tool is necessary for the task, so a jack of all trades is preferable to a master of one.
