about 222:

We’re an incredibly early stage startup working on building the future of social. We are not excited about a future where humans spend the majority of their day in a virtual world.

  • Heading front-end development focused on iOS engineering
  • Working with engineers & founders to accelerate growth, activation, & retention through product design iteration, front-end development, & user research
  • Build a company-wide set of design principles and guidelines to integrate throughout the entire product

who you are:

  • You’re passionate about solving the problem 222 is tackling
  • Demonstrated history of building outside of work/school (projects/products, applications, music, art, etc.)
  • Regardless of personal experience, you’re excited about wearing different hats across brand & product design, UX research & front-end engineering
  • You have experience working with Figma / Sketch to build & design consumer-facing social products (please include link to design portfolio in application)
  • You have a strong stance on the ethics surrounding user psychology in social products
  • You have experience writing/shipping front-end code in an Agile Software Lifecycle ( HTML/CSS/Javascript, React, Swift)
  • Previously launched / worked on an iOS application currently on App Store

we’re looking for this type of person:

🎨  artist

🖌️  designer & engineer

🧠  first principles thinking

🏗️  history of building things from scratch

🙇‍♂️  strongly opinionated about our current social fabric and its future

what we’re offering:

  💸  competitive salary + equity

  📈  a chance to join an extremely early-stage startup backed by an incredible set of investors

  🖥️  the opportunity to work IRL with a team of co-workers and hopefully friends :)

what is 222 ?

We're not a dating app.

We're not a friend-making service.

We're a platform for unique social experiences.

No profiles, no DMs, no scrolling, no swiping.

Just say "yes" & explore the chance encounters you'd have never experienced.
