You are an engineer with a passion for design and motion. You love understanding business needs and design direction and enjoy transforming that understanding into user-centric experiences through code. You uncover needs by listening closely and asking perceptive questions. You are keen on adding your own ideas (and flare) to make an experience more beautiful and personal. You have an intuition for how things should work but you ultimately rely on tangible results to make final decisions. You love experimenting with new ideas and techniques. You are excited to take on new challenges and be part of something small that is growing into something big.

And us? We are well funded and growing exponentially. In 2021, we won Deloitte’s Fast 50 in Canada and Fast 500 in North America awards, recognizing us as one of the fastest growing technology companies on the continent -- and we’re just getting started. We are building the world's most advanced tools for e-commerce and interior decor. Our customers include Fortune 500 companies such as Home Depot, local retailers such as Alexanian's, and leading brands such as Crate&Barrel. We are looking for zealous and collaborative challenge-seekers to amplify our momentum and help us create an iconic global tech company.

About our results

Our customers see a 5x increase in e-commerce conversion rates and a dramatic decrease in the time it takes for their customers to make a purchase decision. We are also reducing the world’s carbon footprint by eliminating trips to the store and avoiding product returns, while also saving marriages -- now you can be sure you’re buying the right product for your home.

About our office and remote work

We are located in downtown Toronto with nearby access to both of the main subway lines. Currently, we are all working from home; we encourage our teams to work from wherever they are most productive, and many of us will continue to work from home in the future, either full-time or partially. While we're all working remotely, we’ve come up with a few ways to keep everyone on the same page, including a quick company-wide check-in every Monday, remote coffee breaks on Fridays, and ad hoc topical sharing sessions. Another big upside is you get to be around your pets and plants (if you have them).
