About the Team

As an engineer on the End-User Experiences pod at Leanplum, you’ll have the opportunity to redefine what’s possible in relationship marketing. The mission of the End-User Experiences team (known internally as E2) is to enable marketers to effectively reach and engage their end-users at every touchpoint. We own everything from the message composition experience on the Leanplum dashboard to ensuring users are receiving the hundreds of millions of messages Leanplum sends to users everyday, across all platforms and devices. This includes building the open-sourced SDKs that are now installed on billions of devices, on platforms like Android, iOS, Unity and Web. Our products are some of the most visible and customer-facing of all teams in the company. 

Under the hood, E2 owns all of the backend services capable of sending tens of millions of messages in minutes. We also own core pieces of the front end dashboard product, where customers compose their Leanplum campaigns. Our SDKs are written in Objective C, Swift, Java and JavaScript. Our highly scalable backends are writing in Java.
