Engineering at Panda
Engineering team and processes

We have weekly sprints with stand-ups on Monday and retrospectives on Friday. Retrospectives usually compromise of a demo of completed work. We handle our code reviews through Github via pull requests. Our branching strategy is standard via feature branches. All developers have full autonomy of their stack from top to bottom. We pair program as much as possible.

Technical Challenges

Our engineering team solves complex problems around AR, NLP and 3D that empower our users’ to share meaningful stories and create incredible animated movies. Engineers handle nearly every piece of the app and take on a multitude of challenges in order to make Panda both delightful and performative.

Projects you might work on
  • You would create a powerful new iOS app from the ground up.

  • You would work with ARKit and SceneKit to build fully dynamic scene views that brings users' stories to life.

  • You would help design an intricate mobile experience where users create 3D characters that star in dynamic and generative scenes based on stories they tell.

  • You would work on internal tools that help our creative team keep Panda regularly updated with exciting new content and stories for our users.

  • You would interface with true depth sensors to create a product that takes full advantage of current and future hardware.

Working at Panda

We are a small but mighty team that is always excited to take unconventional approaches to new problems. We are obsessive about learning what we don't know and adapting to new information on the fly. The entire team has a strong collaborative spirit and that largely guides our strategy and thinking.

Health Insurance

Full health, vision, and dental benefits. Wake up with a cold or need a new filling? You’re covered.

Flexible Hours

Whether you’re married with kids or just have a needy puppy at home - we respect your time and obligations outside of work.

Generous Vacation

Panda has an unlimited vacation policy and a mandatory time-off requirement. We believe building creative products requires good rest.

Company Retreats

We're working out the details of our first big company retreat in the coming months and we want you to be there!

Team Activities

We have frequent company off-sites that are often booked during work hours. These include scenic hikes, cooking classes, board game night and more!
