Product

Framebridge makes it easy and affordable to custom frame the art, photos, and memorable moments you love! They work with both digital and physical art, building custom frames in their Richmond, KY facility.

They also have a growing number of retail stores — two in the DC area and new ones coming soon in NY and Atlanta. Their technology enables a high-quality omnichannel experience between web, mobile, and retail interactions.

Company

Framebridge was founded in 2014 to make custom framing simple and affordable, bringing a modern experience to customers.

They make it simple and affordable to custom frame the things you love.

The problems Framebridge solves on the engineering team span eCommerce, manufacturing, logistics, and data analysis. They strive to create unique and intuitive experiences that allow customers to frame their art using powerful and easy-to-use products. They also create the tools, systems, and processes to empower their own employees in constructing great frames and an experience that customers love.

What’s it like to work at Framebridge? Brock Wilcox, VP of Engineering explains:

“We work on continuously delivering products and iterative improvements. Along the way, we keep learning and growing as a team and individuals, prototyping and experimenting to expand our capabilities. As part of a small company, each member of our team has opportunities for leadership and guiding the evolution of the products we create.

Onboarding a new team member involves both a macro view of the company and teams, as well as a hands-on view of our technical tools. During the first two days, you’ll get a lot of 1-1 time with team members, and by the end of the second day, you’ll have code running in production. Nothing fancy of course, but you’ll have a working dev environment and an end-to-end walkthrough of our tools and process. From there we have a gradual increase in scope as you do further training with the team and technology.”

Location

Framebridge’s corporate office is currently in Georgetown, DC. It is hard to get to but great once you’re there!

In 2020, they are currently fully remote. In Richmond, KY, where they manufacture frames, there are many operational employees, including some tech staff.

From Brock:

“The ‘factory’ is a fantastic place to experience — getting to see how we build frames and partake in the system integrations (barcodes! CNC maachines!) is a very special part of Framebridge. Even developers who do not work from KY get the chance to visit so we can all have direct experience of our physical-stack. Same goes for the retail stores!”
