About Us

We’re working hard to disrupt the high fashion industry with a mobile game that includes ecommerce features, backed by an angel investor, advised by world renowned industry experts, and partnered with a high-tech, international retail partner.

Job Description

Our mobile apps need to feel like they belong on their respective platforms, and have both gameplay mechanics and e-commerce features. Analytics and tracking with an appreciation for each user’s privacy are required. We have a client-server architecture so you’ll be using HTTP (and likely more novel protocols in future) to synchronise state.

You need take a scientific approach to innovation and problem solving. You'll be heavily involved in defining and delivering experiments to further our understanding of the market, our users, and how we can best hit our targets. You need to be product minded, and user-focussed as this job requires building software for consumers.
