MediaValet Team


My name is Jean and I’m the CTO of MediaValet.  When we started MediaValet, we pioneered in cloud-based Digital Asset Management as a pure, born-in-the-cloud, DAM SaaS solution.  Being a leader in the Cloud DAM space, we need to continuously innovate by introducing machine learning capabilities and build architectural runway to scale and perform well even with the massive workloads of enterprise customers.

MediaValet’s Cloud DAM teams have multiple openings for senior backend cloud developers who have experience in building complex, event-driven, distributed applications on Microsoft Azure’s PaaS cloud. We practice Domain Driven Design (DDD) and use CQRS and implement a microservices approach to platform development.

  • enables entire organizations access to relevant digital/marketing assets when their employees need them
  • empowers our customers’ partners/channels with the content they need to promote and sell our customers’ products and services
  • provides our customer’s target audience with the right content at the right time to provide meaningful visual experiences to deliver our customers’ intended message to their markets

This group is composed of several teams such as Core DAM, Video and Image Intelligence (Machine Learning), Identity & Access Management, Distribution, CreativeSPACES, Integrations etc. Every team is a very tightly-knit group of developers working hand-in-hand with a product manager delivering software the lean-agile way.   Once you meet the team, you will see that there is a high sense of ownership, technical excellence, passion towards providing the best customer experience and delivering the best quality of software possible.
