This job offer is expired

We are a Software-as-a-Service start-up that powers the iOS and Android shopping apps of international retailers like House of Fraser, MADE.com and Missguided. We’re relentless at seeking out the most advanced technology and our software is constantly improving. This means that our clients are always at the forefront of innovation. 

We have collaborated with many clients and integrated with lots of partners to launch apps with cutting-edge features including: augmented reality, product merchandising, tailored push notifications and app marketing. The Poq platform drives millions of revenue for our customers every month, and facilitates thousands of transactions every day. 

Poq was founded in 2011 and we have built an amazing team of diverse and brilliant minds. 

About the role 

Apps are replacing the mobile web. As the next generation of shoppers go online, they increasingly go mobile, and they favour apps. Nielsen and Flurry both report that 90% of time spent on mobile is spent in apps. Apps are taking over, and it’s happening faster than people thought. The problem today is that apps need a completely different back-end compared to the web. Instead of rendering the HTML on the server and pushing it to a browser, the new generation of REST APIs provide clean and tidy JSON data that's easy to use in apps. Retailers are spending more and more time on their apps, creating tailored content for their loyal customers to get that shopping experience just right. 

And this is where you come in. We want to create a powerful and intuitive App Management Dashboard to replace our existing Content Management System. This will be the primary interface our clients will use on a day-to-day basis to configure, customise and manage their apps and its content. We feel this is a key part of our journey to become an enterprise App Commerce SaaS Platform and you will be an integral part of the Product team, driving Poq forward.
