In this role, you’ll work within a dedicated and fully staffed feature team to build and maintain user-facing features and libraries that are essential for cross-functional development teams.

You’ll use your experience building performant, user-focused web applications to implement the tools and software that allow our users to create best-in-class event pages and greeting cards. You will work with React, Redux, TypeScript, NextJS, and GraphQL to build a range of functionality helping users to create, send, and manage custom event pages. Your contributions will make a meaningful impact on a complex consumer product used by millions of users. This role will have an opportunity to work across our product, including our web-based editor for designing dynamic web pages and our event management platform for helping event hosts connect with their guests.

A little bit about us

The PP Engineering team, a highly collaborative group of developers and technologists, is charged with building and refining a consumer-facing product that millions of people interact with each month. The team you’ll be joining focuses on the highest priority projects across our product domains and is made up of engineers, product managers, QA, and product designers. We prioritize creativity and continuing education, and our ongoing commitment to quality code shows in our pragmatic but brave approach to technology.

What you’ll do here

  • Develop and maintain our applications with reusable, testable, and resilient components that foster a consistent user experience.

  • Empathy for people who worked on the code base before you.
  • Good communication skills and willingness to learn and collaborate with the team.
