About The Role & Team
We’re looking for a Senior Product Engineer who will own engineering projects that impact customer acquisition, monetization, and customer retention. You’ll be part of the engineering team and work across teams with people from product, marketing, customer success, and design. Everything you work on will have a direct and measurable impact on Amplitude’s business metrics and trajectory. If you have a mix of frontend and backend development, strong systems and product thinking, owned projects end to end in the past, and want to use your technical skills to drive business growth, this role could be a great fit.
As a Senior Product Engineer, you will:
- Taking projects from ideation to implementation
- Designing and implementing improvements or new flows within the Amplitude product to increase retention and engagement(ex. New user experience, onboarding, invite flows, feature adoption)
- Setting up A/B tests and experiments in and out of the core product
- Implementing analytics tracking and using Amplitude to measure experiment results and usage metrics
You'll be a great addition to the team if you have:
- Growth mindset: you are motivated by moving metrics and driving concrete business outcomes while solving customer pain points
- Can question your own assumptions and come up with experiments to validate them
- Can rapidly prototype solutions as well as take a concept to production
- Would rather implement, learn from results, and iterate quickly than spend a lot of time tweaking and perfecting things before shipping
- At least 3 years experience building and maintaining products with real-world usage
- Familiarity with UI/UX best practices
- Wireframing and schematics, prototyping where useful and necessary
- Strong understanding of responsive design/development techniques and principles
- Experience with web or mobile analytics technologies and/or data analysis methods (ex. SQL)
- Have worked with a frontend web framework, especially React
- Experience writing hand-coded HTML email (and knowledge of HTML email rendering bugs and workarounds)
