It's our time to scale. It's your time to be part of something big.

Tulip's mission is bold. We're a team of experts who have worked with and for retailers over the past 20 years. We are driven to disrupt an entire industry and enable one of the world's largest job markets.

Tulip has built a retail mobile software platform that empowers leading retailers such as Mulberry, Chanel, Saks Fifth Avenue, Kate Spade, Coach, and Michael Kors to give mobile devices to their store associates so they can elevate service, sell more and provide a personalized experience.

Tulip is a place you come to make an impact, working with like-minded people to build something meaningful using the best technology. We are growing, and while lean is great, we need more people, energy, innovation and talent.

As a Senior Cross-Platform Mobile Developer, you will play a pivotal role in shaping and executing our mobile technology strategy. You will be responsible for architecting, designing, and implementing cross-platform solutions that deliver exceptional user experiences across various mobile platforms. You will collaborate closely with product managers, designers, and developers to ensure alignment with business goals and technical feasibility. Additionally, you will stay abreast of emerging technologies and industry trends to drive innovation and maintain our competitive edge. This role will emphasize experimentation and exploring different technological options to find the best fit for our needs.

What you’ll do:

  • Lead the development and execution of cross-platform mobile technology strategies in alignment with business objectives.
  • Architect scalable, maintainable, and extensible cross-platform mobile applications using React Native and other technologies.
  • Experiment with and evaluate various cross-platform technologies (e.g., React Native, Flutter, React, Tauri, Capacitor etc) to determine the best fit for our current and future needs.
  • Collaborate with stakeholders to define technical requirements, prioritize features, and drive the product roadmap.
  • Provide technical guidance and mentorship to development teams, ensuring adherence to best practices and architectural standards.
  • Conduct technical evaluations of third-party tools, libraries, and frameworks to support decision-making processes.
  • Drive continuous improvement initiatives to optimize performance, reliability, and maintainability of mobile applications.
  • Stay up-to-date with the latest trends and advancements in mobile technology, and advocate for their adoption where appropriate.

What you bring:

  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or a related field.
  • 5+ years of experience in mobile application development, with a focus on cross-platform technologies.
  • Proven track record of architecting and delivering successful cross-platform mobile applications from conception to deployment.
  • Strong understanding of mobile development best practices, design patterns, and architectural principles.
  • Excellent problem-solving skills and ability to troubleshoot complex technical issues.
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills, with the ability to collaborate effectively across multidisciplinary teams.
  • Passion for staying current with emerging technologies and eagerness to drive innovation within the organization.
  • A mindset geared towards experimentation and the ability to analyze and determine the cost/benefit of various technological solutions.

Tulip has perks, career progress, and an intimate culture. We have:

  • Embraced remote culture! Work remotely, permanently, and full-time.
  • A culture of openness and idea generation. We have weekly all-hands and quarterly town halls. We pride ourselves on our transparency and keeping it real. From the most senior to the newest team member, we give you access to decision makers and career-building work.
  • The opportunity to grow and apply new skills be it hands-on or leadership. We prioritize diversity, inclusion, and building a community. We're a little weird but in a good way.

Why we are awesome.

Tulip is hungry and humble. When you join Tulip, you'll be part of a strong, thriving, diverse group of people who come from different disciplines, countries, and experiences. We do what we love and it shows in our unrelenting pursuit of affecting real change. We believe in investing in our people, building positive relationships with our customers, and treating our work like our craft.

Tulip is at the cutting edge of technology. We work with big-name retailers. It's a chance to step up to solving complex technical problems and develop a deeper understanding of the retail world while being part of a niche startup style company. We don't fear failure; we embrace challenges. We're excited about taking the lesser known paths, using the open source tools and keeping up with the pace of evolving tech solutions. It's fun, it's fast, and it's future-focused.

Tulip gives back. Inspired, passionate, and committed people helped make us the successful company we are today. We challenge norms and put people before profits. We believe we can build a great company that changes the technical space while simultaneously giving back to society and the community.
