Principal Software Engineer

Lovepop is looking to change how people think of giving. Through intricately designed pop up cards and frictionless buying experiences, our goal is to encourage all of us to acknowledge and surprise important people in our lives in a meaningful way more often. Software is at the core of this shift, and it goes far beyond simple ecommerce.

We are looking for an creative, hungry engineer to drive technical decisions, lead our development team, and help bring amazing digital experiences to life. The person we’re looking for will play “buddy cop” with our head of Product and act as a mentor to the rest of our team.


  • 5+ years in web/mobile development experience
  • Experience building responsive, snappy and mobile friendly web applications
  • Wizard level mastery of computer science, data structure, and system design
  • Strong understanding of AJAX, Ruby, Front end Javascript frameworks, and responsive front end markup
  • Experience building on AWS, ideally in a continuous testing/deployment environment

You’ll do great here if you’re:

  • Excited about building new things from scratch (seriously, we have no existing stack or legacy the guy everyone shakes their fist at 5 years from now)
  • Comfortable working closely with tech oriented PMs and Designers to build the product (we all check in code here)
  • Have an iterative mindset– understanding that shipping something is just the beginning
  • Love collaborating with a team and owning important technical decisions
  • Like working in Agile/scrum/snarky environments
  • Have strong opinions, weakly held
  • Understanding and empathetic of customers

What we have to offer

  • Competitive salary and equity compensation
  • A fun work environment with motivated teammates
  • .01% bullshit
  • Flexible schedule with the ability to work from home when necessary
  • The intangible perk of working on a product your non-technical friends and family can understand
