MONOQI is seeking a full-time Product Photographer with extensive experience shooting packshots and lifestyle product photography – with a strong portfolio to prove it. Working in close collaboration with our graphic design team, this individual will ensure – with or without artistic direction – that imagery consistently meets brand standards and possesses a singular aesthetic value.

Exceptional imagery is a crucial aspect of the MONOQI customer experience, and this individual will be largely responsible for maintaining and advancing this standard. Due to the deadline-driven nature of this position, our graphics studio operates on a tight schedule and continuously meets high quality standards that are never compromised. This means that creativity, originality, adaptability, and time-management skills are of the essence. This position offers candidates an exciting opportunity to join a creative, international organisation based in the heart of Berlin and work with us as we continue to source the best design from around the world.

  • Managing personal workflow, ensuring all images meet daily and weekly deadlines for online sales
  • Responsible for care and upkeep of all studio equipment, props, and supplies

What you’ll bring to the team:

  • A Bachelor’s Degree in Photography or in combination with Graphic Design or a related field

  • High proficiency in still-life, lifestyle, and packshot product photography
  • Advanced technical skills in studio lighting
  • Advanced technical proficiency with Mac hardware and software, proficient in Photoshop, Lightroom and CaptureOne
