Who you’ll be working with

Our engineering team is 16 strong and split up into five discrete functions: web, iOS, Android, core, and platform. You’ll primarily be working with one other Android engineer, the mobile PM, and several UI/UX designers.

We are a tight knit group that is inclusive, fun and hard working. We love shipping clean, testable code. Our top priority is producing a product that people love using. We have a firm, non-negotiable no jerk policy. We accept you for who you are and consider everyone on an equal opportunity basis without regard to race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability, age, or veteran status.
