About us & the job :

As a Creative Technologist, your initial mission will be to help bridge design <> development, to sprinkle our features with finesse, and to help us exceed our customers expectations.

We do this because we want to make the world a better place (that sounds cheesy, but we mean it). After all our goal is to offer more than just an alternative avenue to buy tech products, we want to do e-commerce differently. <3

  • You contribute inclusive design practices, are comfortable in voicing your opinion, and love mentoring and coaching others

  • You know what there is to know about how to wow people with visual finesse
  • You think about interfaces not as static pixels but as dynamic experiences
