Full Time
2 months ago

In Customer Conversion, our mission is to elevate our customers’ shopping experience in two key areas - Purchase and Post-Purchase. The Purchase journey starts after customers add an item to their shopping cart, continues through checkout and ends with placing the order. After that, the Post-Purchase area provides a clear view into customers’ order status and past purchases, and enables customers to conveniently return the items they will not keep. As an iOS Engineer dedicated to Apps Purchase, you will join the mission to make the shopping experience simpler and faster for our customers, by taking advantage of modern mobile technologies to enhance this journey for millions of our app customers. You will be at the forefront of how we define, own & build rock-solid user experience for millions of our app customers. You will join a diverse team which enjoys working with each other and always collaborates to deliver as a team, striving for continuous improvements while doing so.
