About us: We’ve been around for almost 13 years, and growing stronger every year. We began as MacPhun, a startup with only 10 people who created apps for Mac. Now we’re Skylum, a global imaging technology company with offices in New York, Kyiv, and Tokyo. We’ve grown to more than 100 employees with one goal and one vision for our future.
