Our Mission

Our story starts in 2006 with three founders in a Sydney garage (no, we’re not kidding). Born from a desire to earn a living doing what they loved, with the flexibility to do it from anywhere, Envato set out to create an online community for buying and selling creative digital assets. Nearly 13 years later, we’re profitable and still totally bootstrapped. This allows us to stay super experimental and totally focused on the best interests of our authors & customers around the world. We’ve built marketplaces where anyone can buy and sell the creative assets they need to complete their projects faster. Our community can now buy millions of different kinds of assets on Envato Market, or subscribe to the #1 unlimited subscription service for creatives, Envato Elements. Every day, these products continue to help everyone from freelancers to small business owners and agencies get their creative projects done. While we are known and loved within the digital professional community globally, where our authors have earned over $750 million, we also want to be a place where anyone can Make with Envato. Alongside Market & Elements, our portfolio also includes Milkshake, a website builder for Instagrammers, Placeit, a smart template tool for logos, mockups, graphic design & more, Mixkit, for free stock footage and animation, and most recently, Twenty20, a stock-photo subscription service. With over 600 people globally, we have offices in Guadalajara, Mexico & Los Angeles, alongside our funky Melbourne HQ. We pride ourselves on being super remote friendly, with a staffing population just as diverse as the global community that use our products. To keep this sustainable as we scale, we support people to work from anywhere, whether that’s the beach in Croatia, on the Mornington Peninsula, or from their living room.

Core Values

At Envato we value community, and this extends to our own workplace. We recognise we’re interconnected and everyone working at Envato plays a role in making this a great place to work. Here’s a few lessons we’ve learned about making a great workplace: Treat people like adults We hire talented, smart adult human beings. We don’t need to follow them around micro-managing their days or policing their movements. We think autonomy is the respectful choice, and most importantly, it leads to better outcomes, including a proud and true ownership of results. Envatians have lots of flexibility at work and beyond to do a great job. Our people know better than we do how, when and where they’re going to do their best work. So we work with them to create those optimal conditions Laugh There’s solid science around the power of laughter to heal and promote wellbeing. Humour is also a great way to bond with your teammates. It helps when your CEO and co-founder has an infectious giggle, but we laugh a lot at Envato and always allow ourselves to smile amidst hard work and tough challenges. Allowing yourself to be vulnerable and silly doesn’t hurt either. Get physical We have several sports champs in our head office and they inspire the rest of us to get moving. We love our standing desks as much as our bean bags, and we have more Envato sports teams than you can poke a stick at. We do yoga together, run together, shoot hoops together, play rock and roll together, and survive boot camp together. (We also indulge in cupcakes and taco fests, so all things in moderation). Breaking bread Lunch time at Envato head office can sometime feel like Thanksgiving dinner, with our communal kitchen full of ‘family’ members feasting and chatting. It’s another simple way we stay connected when it matters most and catch up on news from colleagues around the business. Learn together We hold mini-TED style talks from fellow Envato teammates so we can learn new things and develop our skills using the wisdom of peers. Our Envatians come from so many interesting backgrounds and perspectives, and have an amazing body of knowledge on everything from virtual reality to anthropology. We start our learning journey at home. Many voices Diversity makes us better. Better products, better ways of working, better food, better people. We’re very proud of our many team members, who hail from all over, across all spectrums. We’ve done more than ever to commit to diversity, rolling out some exciting new initiatives to make our company somewhere women, minorities, members of the GLBTQI community and more can feel welcomed and thrive. Put tech in its place Invest in great technology to make communicating and working, particularly over large distances, as smooth and seamless as possible. Then let it do its job and focus on the human. We love technology and use some fantastic tools to help us do our jobs, but its all in service of smart people, not our robot overlords. It’s only part of our environment, not its reason for being. Be a good citizen Envato and its Envatians are members of the tech community, the start-up community, the Melbourne community, the creative community and more. We love opening our doors and getting out and about to host events, support innovators, great causes and other things going in the wider communities we’re a part of.
