The team has released three mobile apps, Shutterfly for iPhone, Shutterfly for Android and Shutterfly for iPad, and all of them have received very positive reviews.
The ideal candidate is a self-motivated innovative thinker who cares for our customers' happiness, the quality of the app and the service, as well as the quality of the code. You will be involved in a discussion on what our customers really want to achieve. You will work with a UX/UI designer to achieve their goals in an iterative way. You will work with back-end developers to design/improve remote APIs to make the innovative design happen. You will often read users' reviews to gain better perspective for improvement.
