Why you should join the Mobile Push team

Over the last year the Mobile Push team at Klaviyo have introduced a new messaging channel to the product in the form of push notifications! Over 2024 we plan to expand the team and continue iterating on our available feature set with the adoption of a new form of communication, through in-app messaging.

In support of this, we are building out our Mobile Push Engineering team and looking for additional team members to help with this effort. The team focuses on building products that enable Klaviyo customers to send push notifications to their customers at high scale, while creating the inaugural release for our new highly customizable in-app messaging product feature. This will offer Klaviyo customers with a much more complete product package with the inclusion of a new marketing channel for mobile and help enable the company to secure a new market.

As a member of the Mobile Push team, you will work on extensive greenfield projects with immeasurable business impact. We are looking for a software engineer to tackle the additional SDK features we will need to support in-app messaging, to expand the push notifications feature suite, and creating processes, and working in a highly collaborative team to own end to end projects.

How you’ll make an impact

  • Architect and build new features for mobile SDK’s on both iOS and Android Devices
  • Work in the Django framework to help maintain and scale a push sending pipeline.
  • Exposure to React for frontend development and adding related UIs

Who you are

  • Helpful to have experience in Python, Django, React and Typescript for core Klaviyo work related to the project (not required)
  • Self-starter - As a member of the team, we are looking for someone who can bring with them a level of expertise in greenfield mobile development.
  • Adaptability - We will be working not just in native SDKs but also backend and frontend Klaviyo stacks, dev tooling and possible expansion into tertiary SDKs in the future.
  • Ambition - With the many directions the team could go after the launch of in-app messaging, it’ll be great to have people that can take an idea and have the ambition to headline it in the future.
  • Learning - Always learning is a value at Klaviyo and this role will require someone excited to learn new technologies and expose themselves to new approaches

Nice to haves

  • Experience in BOTH iOS and Android would be nice but not expected
