What you’ll do:

  • Build amazing user experiences on top of our existing Prescription Check stack
  • Create and improve upon our omnichannel experience for our customers and team
  • Own the design, development, and deployment of features and applications for our Prescription Check technology systems using Swift, Java, Kotlin, Javascript, and Python

  • Mentor Junior Engineers across the team

Who you are:

  • An exceptional problem solver backed by 5+ years of experience in client software development
  • Proficient with various back-end technologies and cloud infrastructure using Python and Go; proficient in web development using JavaScript and TypeScript
  • Familiar with iOS and Android development with Swift, Java, or Kotlin
  • Passionate about developing features from concept to deployment, as well as architecting robust, scalable software solutions
  • A clear, friendly, and open-minded communicator (over email, in person, via carrier pigeon!)
  • Creative and empathetic, especially when it comes to design and development
  • Successful in an agile work environment—you’re comfortable breaking down large pieces of work to deliver value incrementally
  • Able to deliver testable and high-quality code that can be easily maintained
  • Not on the Office of Inspector General’s List of Excluded Individuals/Entities (LEIE)

Extra credit:

  • Experience with GraphQL
  • Experience with building data pipelines
  • Experience with React Native; familiarity with ReactJS
  • Experience with AWS cloud infrastructure
  • Experience with languages such as C, C++, or Objective C
  • Experience architecting cross-platform apps (web, iOS, Android)


About us:

Warby Parker was founded with a lofty objective: to offer designer eyewear at a revolutionary price while leading the way for socially conscious businesses. By circumventing traditional channels and designing our frames in-house, we’re able to offer top-quality glasses and sunglasses (plus an uncommonly delightful shopping experience) at a fraction of the traditional going price.

Since starting out in 2010, we’ve set up headquarters in New York City and Nashville, built our own optical lab, and opened retail locations all around the U.S. and Canada. As we grow, we’re committed to proving that businesses can scale and be profitable while doing good in the world. For every pair of glasses we sell, a pair is distributed to someone in need—to date, that’s over five million pairs.

Of course, all work and no play makes a dull workplace. Who likes that? At Warby Parker, you can look forward to company outings, volunteering and learning opportunities, and just great company. Teammates can also connect around common interests, backgrounds, and identities, no matter their home base, through our various employee resource groups. (We’re happy to say that the Human Rights Campaign has named us a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ+ employees!) That sense of community keeps us excited to walk through the door every day. Good work, good people.

Some benefits and perks of working at Warby Parker:

  • Health, vision, and dental insurance
  • Flexible “My Time” vacation policy
  • Retirement savings plan with a company match
  • Parental leave (non-birthing parents included)
  • Cell phone plan reimbursement
  • A health-and-wellness stipend
  • Free eyewear, plus discounts for friends and family
  • And more—just ask!
