About Famous

At Famous our mission is to empower anyone to create a beautiful shopping experience. We create the most innovative technology that combines the best marketing and design software that can be integrated anywhere. Our designs will power commerce on every platform in the world. If you can imagine it, we will help you create it and share it with the world. One idea turned into a beautiful design at a time.

Famous was launched in 2011 as a Creative Studio and we quickly realized that the technology needed to design for online was not available. After many years and an amazing amount of experience working with some of the world's best brands in the world, we launched Famous Pro in 2018. Since then our mission has been to help businesses of all sizes create beautiful content that powers your shopping experience. Recently we have focused on more tools that allow for seamless integration of our platform into every domain in the world.

Famous is a mobile ecommerce marketing platform that empowers merchants to captivate their customers through immersive, high impact, mobile shopping experiences. We make it easy to quickly create and customize landing pages with little to no technical expertise required. We believe that the future of ecommerce is mobile, and we strive to give brands the ability to target their unique audiences, cultivate a deeper connection with their customers and sell their products in the best way possible.

Famous is committed to fostering a diverse work environment and proud to be an equal opportunity employer. As we highly value diversity in our current and future employees, we do not discriminate (including in our hiring and promotion practices) on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, gender expression , sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, disability status or any other characteristic protected by law.

Engineering at famous.co

Engineering team and processes

We have an engineering team that values autonomy, flow, craft, ownership, beautiful design, and low-overhead. We prefer peer mentorship over hierarchical control. By sharing a common value system, and by making sure business priorities are clear, we minimize rigid processes while still doing a good job of having each engineer make like-minded decisions about what to do next and how to do it.

Technical Challenges

On a given day you can expect to work with feature owners to refine designs, architect and implement solutions, and support the team with the day's endeavors. You may be asked to solve a scalability issue in the distributed back-end, architect layering a complex new feature into the existing codebase, or, perhaps, do battle with a mission critical bug in production. As a small team there are many chances for exploration, and many 'hats' that can be worn throughout the day. We value 'flow', so work to limit unnecessary meetings and distractions, while still finding time to keep it fun.
