It's our time to scale. It's your time to be part of something big.

Tulip's mission is bold. We're a team of experts who have worked with and for retailers over the past 20 years. We are driven to disrupt an entire industry and enable one of the world's largest job markets.

By placing Tulip-enabled iPhones into the hands of associates - at leading retailers like Saks Fifth Avenue, Kate Spade, Coach, and Chanel - our goal is to provide them with instant and reliable access to product and customer information while also being able to transact and collaborate in an omnichannel world.

Tulip is a place you come to make an impact, working with like-minded people to build something meaningful using the best technology. We are growing, and while lean is great, we need more people, energy, innovation, and talent.

Right now, we are adding a Full-stack Developer to the Strategic Customers team. As a member of the Strategic Customers team, you will get a chance to develop complex web applications, using a healthy mix of Javascript (Node.js, React) and PHP. You will be working in a highly collaborative environment; you will help gather requirements, brainstorm ideas, architect solutions, solve technical issues and strive to create a balance between the speed of delivery and feature-richness of Tulip products. This is an exciting role for someone who enjoys the challenge and responsibility of large projects.

The ideal candidate for this position is a thoughtful problem solver who can easily adapt to the changing requirements and quickly learn new technologies. They are passionate about developing modern, cutting-edge web applications, and can balance empathy to end-user with technical requirements.

The team is distributed between Kitchener and Toronto; the role is available at either office
