LoyaltyLion is growing and we would love for you to join us

LoyaltyLion allows ecommerce stores to create their own online loyalty and engagement program. Traditional loyalty programs are boring and outdated. Our goal is to keep innovating and testing new concepts.

The key is to constantly surprise customers, and that's what we strive to do. Our completely customisable platform helps increase purchase frequency, improves customer retention and encourages referrals.

Here at LoyaltyLion, integrations with partners are a value-add that ensure we stand out from competitor startups in the bespoke loyalty programme space.  Just follow the links below to see why they’re so beneficial:

We’re a data-lead company, and integrations provide us data.  So what’s the problem? We don’t currently have the capacity to get them done!

So what do we need?

In short, an experienced developer to build out our integrations. We have a framework in place already; we need someone who can work with the various APIs and integration endpoints provided by our partners and link those up with our platform.

So what do we need?

In short, an experienced developer to build out our integrations. We have a framework in place already; we need someone who can work with the various APIs and integration endpoints provided by our partners and link those up with our platform.

Requirements

  • Expert in server-side JavaScript and TypeScript (our integration platform, which you'll be working on, is TS-based)

    • Strong testing ethic is essential

    • Familiar with Docker, GitHub and associated workflows

  • Prior experience building platform integrations; comfortable working with unfamiliar APIs

    • Our partners use anything from GraphQL to REST to SOAP (though fortunately that’s a rarity!)

    • The tenacity to thoroughly research available options, seek clarification as needed, and work directly with our in-house team to agree a strategy for each integration

    • Capability to understand and document the limitations of each API, ensuring developed integration connectors are robust and resilient to failure

  • Excellent communication and writing skills

    • You'll be talking directly to our UK and US partners, discussing anything from unclear API docs to sandbox accounts

  • Creative thinking: if a partner doesn't have an API, there might still be a way to integrate with them

What we’re looking for:

To date we’ve managed to complete 6-7 integrations over a long period of time. We’ve got something like 50 that we’d like to get done.

Some things to bear in mind:

  • We expect a robust period of discovery at first, at least until you become an expert in all things integration regarding LoyaltyLion

  • We follow a standard github workflow, and are in the process of crystallizing our build and deploy process

  • We use an auto-formatter for code wherever Typescript doesn’t pick it up

  • We have style guides on github and our internal wiki, although these need a bit of work

  • We’ll aim to complete code reviews within 1 working day

What we offer:

Since we’re still in our start-up phase, we’re not precious about this role being performed 9am-6pm in our office.  In fact, given that 90% of our clients are in the US, we are open to both remote workers and unusual week-day hours.

Salary: Comparable day rate
