Our flagship app, Notability, is used by millions of people around the world. It has been the best selling productivity app on iPad for many years and has received awards and praise from Apple. We are always looking for great people to join our team and contribute to Notability's growth and success!

We have another product in the works that we think will be even bigger. We'd love to tell you more about it, but we can't say too much here :)

Engineering at Ginger Labs
Engineering team and processes

Our company maintains a very flat hierarchy. We have project leads who facilitate meetings and help assign tasks, and that's about it. Our processes are team-specific, whatever works for the team, generally they are loose interpretations of agile workflows, customized to the people involved and the current state of the project. We are often revisit this to ensure that we are doing the best thing for the team.

Technical Challenges

We have challenges spanning from implementing user interfaces that are simple enough for kindergartners yet powerful enough for contractors, to managing and syncing large volumes of user-generated data.

Projects you might work on
  • Porting Notability to Android! This involves taking all of the carefully crafted pieces of our world-class productivity app and implementing their equivalents on Android, including a handwriting engine, a custom text engine, high-performance PDF rendering, audio recording, and more.

  • Building out our new, secret project! This project uses React, React Native, and node.js, and is written in Typescript across the stack. That's all I can say here...
