Would you like to work on a feature- and content-rich app and be continuously challenged by technical problems?

Then Zazzle UI apps team is the place for you!

Zazze prides itself on being an innovator and leader in the space of selling customizable goods made by Zazzle or by external manufacturers (aka makers). More often than not, we appear to set standards for other companies in terms of both how manufacturers plug their products in for sale on the Zazzle platform, but also how end consumers interact with our user interfaces to customize and buy these products. We have a challenging task to come up with configurable user interface solutions that will suit a diverse space of customizable products and customers, millions of them. UI engineers will deliver cutting edge user interfaces that will be innovative, compelling, efficient and accessible for both makers, designers and consumers and will perform well on a variety of client devices. In addition to the core business, new and orthogonal frontiers are being developed and you will join these exciting initiatives.

Mobile app UI engineer needs to have both the design sense and strong technical know-hows to quickly grasp the problems, help define solutions, and iterate on interactions, animations and subtle details to deliver the perfect experience. Provided with high-level overviews, wireframes, and sometimes interactive prototypes from the Zazzle design team, mobile engineer is to take this inspiration and turn it into reality, connecting people and pieces together, nailing the interactions through prototype work, adding or removing workflows or processes, as s/he finds it necessary. Partnered up with Product, Design, and Marketing teams, the engineer will be responsible for developing and maintaining Zazzle apps.

What we are looking for:

  • 2+ years as individual contributor building mobile apps (up to senior level)
  • Strong background in Computer Science
  • Technical expertise in native app development (iOS/Swift and/or Kotlin, Java, etc.)
  • React Native or Javascript/Typescript experience or willingness to get on board
  • Full-stack, server-side experience is a plus.
