Piñata Farms is a team of 25 who have been responsible for some of the biggest cultural and tech successes of the last 10 years, spanning mobile, social, video, AR, gaming and music. We are backed by the top Silicon Valley VC's and some of the most influential strategic investors in media, tech, and pop culture. We have been quietly building this company for over a year and are currently in beta with very promising early engagement metrics and strong buzz in the high school and college communities ahead of our launch this fall. Our app is a completely novel creative video platform and will be the next great cultural phenomenon -- in fact, you may have already seem some of our work racking up millions of views for Diplo, Marshmello, Kendrick Lamar’s team, Benny Blanco, Lil Dicky, the Jonas Bros…even getting even getting this comment from “🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣” from LeBron.

While we are staying confidential about our product until launch this Summer, our mission is driven from behavioral research into how today’s connected communities work. From our insider’s view of digital media and social communities, we’ve helped establish new norms and know what’s coming next. More than half of our team is dedicated to developing novel and proprietary computer vision technologies that differentiates us from the same old commoditized and shallow video apps. We’ve brought the best technologists and best people in pop culture together - PF will change the mobile video game forever.


The Piñata Farms engineering team organizational structure is flat. We own our data ingestion/cleaning/filtering pipeline, the machine learning model training pipeline, the app client, and the backend. We believe strongly that keeping these core components in-house allows us to communicate better and build a more robust product.


We are looking for a highly motivated and creative Frontend engineer to play a core role in designing and building various web clients at Piñata Farms, both for internal infrastructure and consumer facing products. You would be a critical part of the team as the product moves out of internal beta testing and becomes publicly available. This will include work on multiple different interfaces including but not limited to: internal tooling for user communication and growth, the pinatafarm company website, user onboarding systems, and external user features.

We are looking for the brightest minds eager to work on problems that are both technically and socially challenging. Your work on building beautiful and intuitive interfaces for both internal and external products will drive success at all layers in the company. Past expertise with consumer products (Snapchat, Pinterest, Instagram, TikTok, etc.), and web based creative tools is a plus.

Various frontend frameworks (Vue -- preferred, React, Vanilla HTML/CSS)
