Lead Engineer

at Beautified in New York, NY   —   Jul 19, 2014   |  
At Beautified, we’re building a new way to discover and book beauty. We’re a mobile business that looks at the beauty and wellness space from two unique perspectives: the consumer and the business-operator. We think technology can create new efficiencies for an old-school industry, still very reliant on pen and paper. Beautified launched to a feature in February 2013’s Vogue Magazine, and we’re working to bring the beauty business online, one customer at a time. Join us.


As the lead engineer at Beautified, you will be working to build best-in-class technologies to transform the beauty and wellness space. We are engineering a complete solution from scratch, which means going above and beyond the typical problem solving at most consumer-focused businesses.

We need a leader who is as comfortable building and expanding a proprietary spa/salon book optimization software, as they are directing, leading and getting their hands dirty alongside iOS experts and front-end pros. The day-to-day might involve project managing internal and external teams with specific technical-expertise, debugging CSS and Javascript, buiding integrations with third-party products, or writing a new data service. Our priority is to ensure a stable technical environment for our customers (via our mobile app) and our partners (via our proprietary web-based software), while continuing to expand it’s capabilities and shipping regularly.

Beyond being a technical rockstar, we want our lead engineer to be able to make great product decisions, design (and build!) elegant user interfaces, and take a strong leadership role.
