Our design team is continuously looking in two directions: backwards and forward. We look backwards at what we already have, and ask ourselves how can we improve it. We look forward and ask ourselves how we can predict our customers indirect needs and address them before they become an actual need.

  • Collaboration experience with the engineering team, product managers, and other designers.

What you'll be working on

  • Core e-commerce iOS app: Our core white label app enables brands to have their own mobile application live within days. We're creating a beautiful native experience that helps brands reach and retain their customers.
  • Merchant app: We're continuously developing our merchant app where brand owners can see analytics, send push notifications, and update their app style from their own admin app.
  • Web dashboard: This platform is used by our customers to launch and manage their native apps in real-time. Our vision is to build a robust dashboard that makes creating and managing apps easy, attainable and fun for every brand.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I first started at Tapcart when the team consisted of 4 people and I was brought on as the only designer. The mix of trust/responsibility paired with good vision/direction allowed me to learn more than I ever have in such a short time span. Top that with a work environment where we all learn from each other as well as have a great time together!

We constantly collaborate between different teams and support one another, which makes for an awesome company culture.
