User Experience Engineer

Kargo is the largest mobile marketplace for premium brand advertising. A fusion of creativity, technology and quality, our media solutions empower advertisers to build connections with consumers on the most important screen today—the phone. Through our alliance of elite publisher partners, we enable brands and agencies to reach eight out of 10 smartphone users in the US with memorable, measurable experiences.  Kargo was just recognized by Business Insider as one of the “hottest ad tech” companies of 2015.

We’re looking for humble but ambitious, razor-sharp professionals who can teach us a thing or two. We promise to return the favor. We embrace those who see things differently, aren’t afraid to experiment, and who have a penchant for pushing the envelope.

That’s where you come in.

As a User Experience Engineer, you’ll work on developing our products and taking them to the next level of UX. You’ll work on the cutting edge of web development with some of the best in the business to define consistent, exciting interactions and polish our products to a mirror sheen.

You Are:

SASSy - You know your SCSS like the back of your hand. Maybe both hands. The box model bends to your will as you architect and lay out pages in a modular, extendable way. HTML5 is a given. Experience with templating systems such as those found in angularJS/handlebars is a huge plus.

Collaborative - Yep, it’s an actual job requirement. One day you may be chatting with design about a color palette and the next you’ll be in the weeds with an Angular engineer discussing layout of a complex control. Wearing many hats is part of the job, but at least your head stays warm!

Animated - As interfaces become more complex, animations and transitions serve to communicate changes in state and informational hierarchy. They’re also pretty darn cool. You understand this and strive to bring life to your interfaces through considered, but exciting, animation.

Programmatic - You and JavaScript are on good terms.  You can add and enhance features and UI systems with aplomb as you skirt the line between dev and design.

Organized - Keeping large code systems in check as they grow ever larger is an almost herculean task at times. Thankfully, your biceps are more than up to the challenge. Eliminating redundancies, maintaining a style guide, and keeping everything spic and span is second nature to you.
