How it started?
' A few years ago, when I was sending invoices to my accountant and photos for friends, I ran into quite a problem - internet uploading & sending limits. My files were too big to sent them. I couldn't collect everything at once and share it, I had to do it in batches which took much more time... This lost time kept me awake at night, so I decided to do something. I didn't think long and created an application for resizing files - to save time and solve the issues that accompanied me. It turned out that the application was useful not only to me, but also to other users. Then I thought it would be worth developing to help other people. This is how the LightPixel was founded. ' - tells the founder.
Mobile apps with mission
We develop apps to solve people's real-life problems, make their life easier and bring joy. We want our applications to be as useful as possible, that's why we:
- follow the motto “simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”,
- constantly researching users needs,
- listen to our users and respond to their feedback and suggestions,
- improve our applications by optimizing existing features and adding new.
Success of our applications is a result of subsequent iterations and continuous development. We’re constantly looking for improvement opportunities, because we believe that we can make our apps better and better. And so far, it works!

Team about the work
Read what our team members say about working at LightPixel.
Dla mnie najważniejsze w pracy jest pracować z fajnymi ludźmi i czuć, że to co zrobię jest przydatne. Tutaj mam to wszystko.
W poniedziałek nie mogę się doczekać żeby iść do pracy - nie czuję że pracuję! Lubię też to, że to co zakoduję używają miliony ludzi na całym świecie.
Pracę w tej firmie cenię za duże możliwości zdobywania wiedzy i doświadczenia. Każdego dnia pojawiają się różne wyzwania, które z pomocą kolegów z zespołu zawsze znajdują niesztampowe rozwiązania. Ulepszamy wzajemnie pomysły i nie przestajemy się rozwijać.
Jako UX Designer widzę, że produkty nie powstają tu z przypadku, a kryje się za nimi zespół skoncentrowany na dostarczaniu najlepszej wartości dla użytkownika. Do tego chęć stałego rozwoju umiejętności własnych oraz budowanie teamu, który współtworzy, a nie tylko produkuje.
