Palta is hiring a

Frontend Developer

Limassol, Cyprus

Palta is a multi-product tech platform developing several mobile apps focused on health and well-being with a combined audience of more than 50 million monthly active users. Our portfolio includes such successful companies as Flo (global leader in female health), Simple (12m+ downloads, the most popular intermittent fasting app in the US), Zing (personal fitness trainer), and more. 
The rapid portfolio growth is fuelled by the recently raised $100 million in a series B round led by VNV Global.

Pora is a Beauty and Health AI assistant developed to democratize dermatology and cosmetology services. Our goal is to empower peoples' wellness and beauty with an ultimate tool for understanding and further improving their skin. We develop breakthrough AI solutions that combine deep knowledge of the user's condition with comprehensive competencies in skincare products.

We already have developed the iOS version of our app that is available in the US, Canada, and EU stores. It’s capable of:

  • Guiding the user through a dermatological questionnaire to understand their conditions and needs
  • Taking images of the user’s face and providing ML-based analysis
  • Providing meaningful recommendations of topical cosmetic products that can improve the skin conditions of the user.
  • Suggesting face exercises to maintain firmness and the youth of the skin.

What do we need

  • Build a reliable and flexible web architecture to create the best onboarding scenario in the market which is able to perform thousands of AB-tests to optimize its structure, appearance, and wording.
  • Develop a face-scanning scenario on the web, based on our own ML models.
  • Integrate various services to enable a smooth web-to-app scenario.
  • Create the whole startup’s website with various landings targeted at different audiences (such as developers, investors, media, customers, etc), customer areas, entry points to different scenarios, etc.

Also, we need to create some tools for internal use. For example, we’re using our own platform to collect dermatological labeling for our datasets. Also, we use crowdsourcing intensively to test our scenarios, and we need various tools to make the results of these tests transparent and easy to use.

We're looking for a solid professional to help us reach all these goals. You will be a single responsible person for the corresponding area, you’ll report directly to the CTO. All the results achieved in this role will directly impact our business goals and the quality of life of our users.

Why work with us

  • A rare opportunity to launch a new big thing from scratch, not just continue some predecessors' work. We're working in a high-tech field and have the opportunity to improve the quality of many peoples' lives heavily.
  • The co-founders have vast experience and accomplishments in the industry. Therefore, working with such people closely is a great way to learn; moreover, their references might become a game-changer for any further career prospects.
  • You'll be able to take advantage of all the recent technologies, methods, and tools since we're a brand new company, and there's no legacy or technical debt to be mindful of.
  • Being responsible for the website architecture of an ML-based application is an awesome way to obtain decent knowledge and hands-on experience in various ML-related topics, yet having a job that does not require any ML background.
  • We're aiming at the worldwide market, and we'll work with user data, so we'll need to satisfy. A lot of regulations while working with personal and medical data. Having such an experience is quite rare and extremely valuable in the market!
  • We work with the best experts to support our knowledge when we don't have enough competencies. So whatever is unclear — we have an expert to help overcome the issue!

Should we mention that joining the startup in the very early stage means an opportunity to lead a large department in the observable future? Indeed we should! But it also means taking maximum out of the employee stock ownership plan. The fewer employees we have — the more shares we might offer. Join us while we're still small and benefit from our growth!

What we expect

  • Strong experience developing with React
  • Experience with TypeScript
  • Experience with implementing the adaptive web design
  • Ownership and leadership mentality
  • Passion about healthcare, helping people, launching awesome products 🙂

Familiarity with TensorFlow will be considered as an advantage since we need to run ML models on the client side.

Our current team

The current team is pretty small: we have less than twenty team members 🙂 Most of our fellow colleagues are engineers — ML, backend, iOS, and web developers. The product team also includes several designers, product and project managers as well as UX researchers. We collaborate with many scientists to make sure our app is in line with the existing body of research.

Please join us in our adventure!
