Supergreat is a community of real beauty fans reviewing, shopping, and sharing tips about their favorite products.

JOB DESCRIPTION

Supergreat is a beauty community where everyone’s an expert on the products that work for them; a platform that makes it fun for beauty enthusiasts to discuss and create video reviews, share their beauty routines, and discover new products from people they relate to. You can find Supergreat in the App Store or on the web.

We're a fast-moving startup based in NYC, looking for a Senior iOS Engineer to work on the Supergreat app. We're eager to work with a product-thinking engineer who enjoys collaborating with designers and product to build great user experiences. Our app includes video-editing tools for content creators, product drops with limited rewards, and livestreaming experiences where hundreds of users simultaneously chat and interact with content. These features mean there's a lot of interesting technology to build and work with – and since the team is still small, you'll have a good amount of autonomy to research and implement.

Supergreat is a tight-knit team of 19 where people are excited about wearing multiple hats and tackling challenges they've never encountered before. We are backed by top investors including Benchmark, Thrive Capital, Third Kind, and angels including founders of Rent the Runway, Product Hunt, Thrive Market, and Tumblr.

In this role, you'll be responsible for:

  • Designing, building, and maintaining Supergreat's iOS app
  • Delivering new features from conception to rollout
  • Working with our Engineering team on Supergreat's API
  • Collaborating with the Design team on user experience

We're looking for someone who:

  • Has 4+ years iOS experience, and ideally some additional exposure to fullstack development
  • Understands how to architect a maintainable, well-tested, and performant iOS application
  • Has some experience with reactive and functional programming techniques
  • Focuses on the experience of users – their 'definition of done' means that their work solves the user's needs and feels great!
  • Extra bonus points for experience with AVFoundation – this would be very useful for improving our video editing tools!

Projects you may work on in the next six months:

  • Build an amazing live streaming experience for hosts and their viewers, with a focus on tools that foster engagement and shopping
  • Build and measure new growth experiments to drive acquisition and promote retention
  • Improve personalization of content, so that our app is able to recommend the most relevant content to users based on their traits, the quality of content, etc.
  • Establish architectural foundations to help the app stay performant and testable

INTERVIEW PROCESS

1) An introductory call with the Head of Engineering.

2) A virtual onsite with four interviews:

  • A behavioral interview, focusing on a candidate's collaboration skills, challenges they've dealt with in their career, etc.
  • A coding exercise, where the candidate will work on changing functionality in a codebase to match a product spec. The exercise is 'open book' and is designed to be similar to day-to-day programming exercises an engineer would perform in the job.
  • An architecture interview, where we'll talk about a hypothetical site and some of the architectural decisions / trade-offs a candidate would make in building it.
  • An interview with our CEO.

DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION

Currently 42% of our team are people of color and 57% are women. In absolutes, we know these are small numbers on a small team of 19 full-time employees, and we're committed to improving internally through efforts such as diverse slates but also continuing to nurture our inclusive community through explicit inclusion goals for content creator and brand partnership programs.

For example, 4 out of 6 creators for one of our largest launches were women of color (two of them are black women) and regularly showcase Black-owned brands.

The global beauty industry is not only growing, but evolving - in large part due to the overdue need to be inclusive of skin tones, genders, and age.

At Supergreat, we aspire to be part of this change through how we operate and the community we build with special attention paid to marginalized groups.

We're a young company and we NEED to work with people who are fascinated by blending curation with technology, and building products for a truly safe, positive environment so our users are able to be themselves, see themselves, and be celebrated.
