We’re looking for a few remarkable individuals to join our Design Engineering team. In this unique role, you’ll work closely with the Product Design, User Research, and Engineering teams to take product ideas from concept to reality and iterate based on real user feedback. You’ll help drive the design process and coordinate with engineering teams to ship these new products to hundreds of millions of users. Snap is a design-led company, so you will significantly impact the future of the product and the business.

The ideal candidate will have a mix of technical and creative chops, with strong iOS engineering skills and a dash of product design exposure.

What you'll do:

  • Work closely with the product design team to take product ideas from concept to reality

  • Work with user researchers to test new prototypes and iterate on feedback

  • Work closely with engineering teams to transform prototypes into shippable products

  • Demo new products to our executive leadership team

  • Push the limits of mobile devices and create great user experiences

  • Build fun, innovative products that impact the direction of the company

Minimum qualifications:

  • Strong computer science fundamentals, including data structures and algorithms

  • 2+ years of iOS software engineering experience

  • Strong understanding of software engineering principles — and the ability to know when it’s fine to abandon them for a quick proof-of-concept

  • Ability to quickly dive into an unfamiliar, complex codebases

  • A self-starter with the ability to work in a fast-paced, sometimes ambiguous work environment

  • Capable of thinking at a high level about product strategy

  • Deep empathy for product and user experience

  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or equivalent experience

Preferred qualifications:

  • Objective-C expertise

  • Proficiency with design and rapid prototyping software (e.g. Figma, Sketch, Framer, Origami, Principle)

  • Experience building full stack mobile applications

  • Excellent communication and presentation skills. You’ll be expected to clearly communicate design decisions to leadership, the rest of the team, and to engineers

  • Bringing something new to the table: whether that’s a new perspective on our product, a unique understanding of a particular field, or expertise in something like hardware, AI, 3D graphics, HCI, etc.

  • Passion for Snap Inc. products!
