Legacybox Adds 60 Full-Time Employees

Friday, May 29, 2020
Legacybox, the world’s largest mail-in solution for digitizing home movies and photos, announced Friday it has hired 60 new full time employees in its Chattanooga based headquarters and production facility. The hires have been across the company’s operations including customer support, design, marketing, fulfillment and processing.

It is continuing to hire in a number of areas, including finance, design, human resources, production and development departments, with jobs posted at https://apply.workable.com/southtree/.

The new hires are all full-time employees with benefits including healthcare, paid time-off, full-matching 401k plan, and more. In total, Legacybox now has 230 employees. The hiring ramp up comes at a time where the company has recently surpassed 850,000 customers.

Legacybox co-founders Nick Macco and Adam Boeselager have continued to see rapid growth throughout 2020. This has continued during the most recent period where people find themselves at home looking for new projects to help connect with loved ones. Its customer base has also grown with new e-commerce shoppers, who they believe have learned to use online services they may have previously shied away from.

“The interest in our services have continued throughout the year and now with so many at home and spending time with family, the importance of protecting analog media for generations is even more important,” said Mr. Macco.

“We’re building the team that will help us with growing demand and advance towards 1,000,000 customers,” added Mr. Boeselager. “We’re immensely proud to be able to offer work opportunities during a period that has been difficult for many – and we’re able to offer that in an environment built on innovation and safety.”

The company has continued to enjoy national attention, regularly highlighting the product as a solution for gift giving and home projects. This includes very recent features in Better Homes & Gardens, Vogue, and appearances on the Home Shopping Network.
