Lovevery is a mission-driven company, passionate about helping every parent feel confident that they are giving their child the best experiences in early childhood. Our team believes in the power of combining physical play products with digital education and support to create an ecosystem for parents that is unmatched by any other brand. In addition to our robust e-commerce platform, we are also building a digital product that gives parents stage-based activities and content, allows them to engage with experts and a community of parents, and makes it easy for parents to know how to promote their child’s development.

The Role

We are looking for a Senior iOS Engineer with native iOS development experience who has full-stack breadth to join the Mobile team responsible for this digital product. On the team, you’ll work on every aspect of the customer journey – from getting users into the app, giving them the best, stage-based developmental information tailored to their child, helping them get specific questions answered by child development experts, and helping them learn how to play and get more value out of our toys. You’ll own the client-side app architecture along with the backend that supports it. You’ll think about building best-in-class beautiful and flexible UI, content management, account and subscription management, digital payments, tools for our developmental experts and more. You will do it all with a platform focus in mind - scaling our global audience to millions of customers and continuously looking for opportunities to enhance our technology, increase velocity and maintain a high quality bar. This is a full-stack role that covers architectural vision to implementation.
