Envato is also home to one of Melbourne's biggest teams of passionate Ruby and Rails developers who deliver changes into production every hour of every day (ok, every work day!) and operate the way you'd expect; everything's on Github, all the testing's automated and everything's continually improving. Did we mention we're hiring?

The cofounders of Envato saw an opportunity to make a business that would benefit creatives all over the world. They have remained true to their mission to help people earn and learn online. They bootstrapped the company, lived with in-laws, had their first office in a garage and freelanced on the side to pay bills until they could make Envato profitable.

Envato proudly provides people with the training and the market to sell products or services from anywhere in the world!
