Full-Stack Software Engineer (Senior)

Wally is building software for the next generation of social commerce. One of the most unheralded platform shifts happening right now is the e-commerce revolution happening on social platforms like TikTok, IG, and Youtube over the next few years. While everyone else is chasing the AI-wave, Wally has quickly and quietly become one of the top selling stores on TikTok Shop in just 2 short months, on pace to process 10s of millions of dollars in annual GMV. We've cracked the playbook on how to help influencers sell products online, and are looking to keep scaling up our early success. We have a long runway and are close to profitability.

Our initial product helps influencers import their Amazon Storefront into TikTok Shop and take advantage of the improved flow that the native TikTok Shop checkout provides.

We are looking for a founding engineer to join the team and build out our first-party storefront, additional API integrations, and Shopify app. You will also recruit and lead new team members, help set the product direction, and contribute in countless other ways to help build the business.
