Your Role at Neopix

At Neopix, we design and engineer digital products across industries: from medical, fintech, and SAAS to food, fitness, and real estate —you name it, we’ve probably done it. Our current clients are several global companies, some very cool startups, and a couple of big-shot finance management clients. We are looking for someone excited to be a part of such an organization and move our team forward.

Here's your daily life at Neopix:

  • Team effort: Work closely with a team of designers and product owners to define business logic, and also frontend and mobile engineers to determine an optimal interface for data exchange.
  • Engineering: Design and implement low-latency API, database structure, and everything in between to make sure it’s running smoothly. Come up with creative solutions for challenging business problems.
  • Keeping an eye on quality: Work on bug fixing and improving application performance and security. Test code for robustness, including edge cases, usability, and general reliability.
  • Communication: Express your ideas, share your know-how, and participate in clear and honest cross-team communication.
  • Culture-carrying: We know how all this sounds: like a big pile of deliverables. And it would be if, behind all those tasks, there wasn’t a group of humans who put meaningful, highest-quality work at the forefront of their daily to-dos. Together, you’ll be keeping Neopix’s spirit thriving.

More than 50 people share a physical and digital space at Neopix and work as one big happy unit: engineers, designers, illustrators, strategists, marketers, product managers, one CEO, and occasionally somebody's cat or dog.
