Job description

At Lulu, our passion is success — success for creators, success for us. You’ll notice who comes first.

That’s not to say we’re all work and no play. Lulu is an open workplace with fun, energetic people united for a common purpose. In fact, we don’t even refer to each other as employees.  We’re team members.  Or Lulus.  Or Lunatics (The reason for that last one will become obvious when you happen upon a Nerf war. Or find your desk toilet papered on your birthday!).  We foster a culture that encourages individual personality to shine through and attract top talent.


If you thrive in an environment where experimentation is encouraged, innovation is fostered, and principles of scalable, maintainable applications development are honored, Lulu could be just what you are looking for in a new opportunity.  We are currently recruiting for an Software Engineering Manager to lead our User Interface and eCommerce engineering team.
