Arthur is looking for an Engineering Manager or Lead Engineer to lead our front-end mobile development team! Arthur is an early-stage venture-backed startup shaking up the $67 Billion/year art market. Our goal is to make the data around the art market more accessible to collectors, investors, dealers, and the artists themselves, giving more people the confidence to discover new art and invest in an informed manner.

Our React Native-based client is at the core of our mission, helping users discover and appreciate contemporary art through our daily Crates, learn and share commentary with others through Collections, and find new works to love through our machine-learning-powered Recommendations and Visual Search features. Our mobile team has been building a stable, efficient, and aesthetically pleasing client throughout our closed beta and into our current open beta, and we are looking to add a leader to help guide the development of the client through our future growth!

Your Role at Arthur:

  • Managing a small engineering team, helping with skills development, and ensuring product delivery and overall success
  • Spending roughly half of your time writing code, working on continuous improvements to our React Native mobile client alongside the team

  • A passion for consumer technology and building delightful user experiences
  • Quality verbal and written communication skills
  • A sincere desire to learn and grow - we’re still quite small, so the desire to learn and grow as the company grows is essential!
