Job Description

Join one of the most exciting companies in the industry and build something real – something that helps people all over the world grow their own business from their passion. Our goal is to become the world’s most used and loved e-commerce platform. We started five years ago in Stockholm, Sweden and we’re now home to hundreds of thousands of stores with millions of products.

Our Stockholm office builds our core infrastructure and product while our NYC office is focused on marketing and growth. The NYC based Growth team focuses on making Tictail grow faster by applying a mix of software skills, design and marketing across the entire product. There are no “growth hacks”.

Tictail is built primarily with Python and JavaScript, but not exclusively. Most importantly we use the right tool for the job and are happy to learn new things. To be successful in this role, you need to be comfortable working across the stack of a complex web application, but we don’t expect you to be a specialist in everything.

Engineering at Tictail does not just involve code; you will be part of the entire process of bringing ideas to life. From brainstorming and early design, to iterating upon the implementation, shipping the code and supporting it in the future. Building features will include work on the Python backend, developing the React frontend that powers tictail.com as well as internal tools that help your colleagues scale their impact.

What you’ll do

- Ship features in our main React application that makes up tictail.com

- Consume, understand and contribute to our Python-based backend services

- Ship often – see features through from design to implementation to deploy to support

- A/B and user test components to make sure we are continually adding value to our users

- Effectively collaborate with your talented colleagues in design, marketing and other skillsets

- Participate in planning and scoping sessions to ensure we are spending our time where it can have the most impact

Who we think you are

- Comfortable moving across and between stacks without needing to be an expert

- UI instincts – you don’t need to create mockups from scratch, but an intuitive eye for design doesn’t hurt

- Comfortable with JavaScript and keep up to date with es-next

- Excited about working on a small, cross-functional team with high ambitions

- Looks for opportunities to get out of the code and contribute in other ways


Some of the benefits of working at Tictail NYC

- Free flow of healthy snacks and drinks

- Generous monthly allowance for buying things from any Tictail shop

- Technical gear to your liking (most of us use Apple laptops with Cinema Displays)

- A pair of nice noise-cancelling headphones as a first-day present

- Hack weeks for building awesome side projects – here’s the winning project from last time: http://tic.tl/1FUsTlp

- Beautiful office in downtown Manhattan on the corner of Broome & Bowery with a great rooftop

- Travel between our Stockholm and NYC offices highly encouraged

- Hang out with our office dogs!
