Lovevery is a fast-growing digitally native brand co-founded by successful serial entrepreneurs and based in Boise, Idaho. Our customers are parents, and our mission is to help them feel confident they are giving their children meaningful development experiences in the critical early years of life. Taking a science-based approach, Lovevery products have won awards from Red Dot, Parents’ Choice, and NAPPA. TIME Magazine named The Play Kits subscription offering as one of the Best Inventions of 2018.

You’re great for this role if you:

  • Have a Full-Stack View with a Front-End focus - You will be architecting a solution that extends from the UI through the back-end and into the data models. Your primary focus is to build robust, high performing native Android experiences and to do so, you will have to provide input into the right back-end APIs to support your work. You’ll deliver full solutions, features and non-functional requirements such as cross-device compatibility, performance, security, and testability.
  • Are Experienced and Able to Learn Quickly - You have deep expertise in building, deploying and monitoring full stack native apps. You can quickly architect and build elegant user-facing features and have a point of view on what’s needed from backend systems. While you love learning new technologies, this is not an area where you need to ramp up.
  • Are Product-Minded - You will define the ideal technical solution and have input in your squad’s roadmap. You will keep a customer-focus in mind, and be able to prioritize business trade-offs for each roadmap item.
  • Are a Strong Collaborator and Communicator - You’ll enjoy working in a world-class cross-functional team where strong communication and collaboration are a key part of your success.
  • Are Quality-Focused - You will be a champion for building things in a robust, scalable way and developing automation and monitoring to prevent regressions that will impact customers' experience with Lovevery.

  • Write code considering security, testability, maintainability, scalability, and performance.
