UI Engineer - Social Marketing

at Lithium Technologies in Emeryville, CA   —   Apr 12, 2014   |  
LITHIUM TECHNOLOGIES, Location: Emeryville, CA

Who are we looking for?

The world of web development is quickly evolving from a thin client model to one with rich and robust browser-based, user interface functionality, using the latest developments in front-end technology. At Lithium, we strive to constantly improve the way we build user interfaces and not only employ the latest UI development methodologies, but also “push the envelope” to discover and establish our own, unique approaches to UI development.

From that perspective, we are actively seeking candidates who want to flex UI development muscles and be part of a dynamic, growing team of engineers dedicated to defining and creating the next generation in front-end UI technology.

Who we are

Lithium Technologies helps leading companies use Social Media to engage customers and drive business results. We create vibrant social communities across websites, Facebook, and the broader social web that increase sales, reduce service costs, and accelerate innovation.

This is a great opportunity to join one of the hottest companies in B2B Social Media. We have strong traction with the world’s leading brands, we are experiencing rapid growth, and we are recognized as a leader by top analyst firms, including Gartner and Forrester.

The world's most innovative companies such as AT&T, Barnes & Noble, Best Buy, Sephora, Univision, Home Depot, and HP use Lithium to engage their customers in breathtaking new ways (literally, breathtaking). They're increasing revenue, reducing expenses, and strengthening their brands. And most importantly, they're building a lasting competitive asset—a brand nation—with their customers.
