(Visit tech.gilt.com to learn more about Gilt Mobile!)
Gilt?s mobile team is perfectly positioned: Our team is small enough to make fast decisions and move quickly, yet our audience is large enough that our work makes a tremendous impact. We?re obsessed with every tiny detail of the user experience. We challenge ourselves technically to combat complexity and build fast, clear, flexible code. We iterate in tight loops, and devise creative solutions to difficult problems that must be solved at scale.
As a Gilt mobile engineer, you?ll be deeply involved in all aspects of getting the product to market?from collaborating with our UX, product and other teams on software design decisions, to digging deep into actual user behaviors. Your development work will impact all of the Gilt experience, but will particularly drive new and innovative features to Gilt?s iOS experience.
You?ll also have many opportunities to share your experiences and passion for technologies with others?both internally and externally. You?ll be encouraged to take risks?from developing your own grassroots projects to submitting proposals to prestigious tech conferences. Anyone on the team?from first-time bloggers to experienced writers?can publish to the Gilt Tech blog, give a presentation, or organize a meetup. Right now you have reputation for being good-to-great. At Gilt we will push you to be great.
