Job description

Tinybeans is the number one family photo sharing app in the App Store and Play Store. We have millions of users sharing their most joyful family moments through our platform, and we make a real difference to their lives.

Be part of a focused, talented team that is creating a fast, beautiful, and robust platform to help bring families together. The kind of culture we foster here in Tinybeans is all about looking after each other, working smart, building great things, and being playful while doing it.

You’ll be working on the backend (primarily Java, Play Framework, MySQL), but your work may also include ops (AWS, React, Lamdba, SWF, Kinesis, Elasticsearch) to analytics (Tableau, R, Spark, Scala); specializing in areas you’re comfortable with and pushing your boundaries to learn new skills, too.  You will have the opportunity to influence the tech stack for the development of exciting new roadmap features.

What’s in it for you?

Visibility: Tinybeans is the #1 family photo sharing app, with a global presence and over 2 million users, and it’s only going to get bigger.

Small team = big impact: You’ll be part of a team large enough to support your growth, but small enough where you can still impact the direction of our products.

Best of both worlds: A small company environment, but with big company resources and a global reach. Quality: Building a good quality product that is rated 5 stars in the app store.

Pride: Sleep well knowing your work supports happy families around the world. If you see yourself contributing to what we stand for, submit your application and join our team!
