Engineering at Flipp
Flipp is a high-growth tech company solving the toughest problems in retail today.
Our engineering team makes up more than 30% of our company, and we pride ourselves on being a product-driven organization.
Meet Flipp’s engineering team
We’re solving complex problems for both retailers and consumers. What makes us different? The scope of our problem. We’re on a mission to change the digital shopping landscape. Our team has built a platform that helps our retail partners thrive in the digital age, while our award-winning Flipp app helps consumers save money on their shopping each week.
Our engineering teams are aligned against missions so that they have the autonomy to drive solutions. We prioritize cross-functional teams – meaning we work alongside product management, scrum masters and product designers. Our team’s size, our leadership and our culture all foster an environment where you will have an impact on our product and our end-user.
Each decision we make is informed by Flipp’s commitment to a “built to last” approach. Our start-up days are behind us, but our hunger for growth and innovation will never change.
Flipp By The Numbers
At Flipp, we believe in having engineers work on solving problems together, not "simply giving them requirements. Engineers have an interesting opportunity at our company because we’re established enough that they can build with a foundation, but we’re small enough that they can make a big impact."

The Way We Work
An Owner's Culture
Our engineers have the autonomy to solve the problem however they see best. We don’t believe in prescribing the solution – that’s what you’re here for.
Our team comes together to explore the capabilities that we could add to not only our product, but also to our company and its people.
Solving Real Problems
We’re obsessed with our consumers. Helping people save money is our passion, and our entire company rallies behind our mission.
At Flipp, we see ourselves as team-members, not employees. We’re a group of individuals who believe that by coaching others and winning as a team, we always achieve greater success.
Investment In Our Technology
We’ve invested in our architectural platform of event-driven microservices using Kafka. Investing in this, alongside monitoring services like Datadog, we’re ensuring that our technology is ahead of the curve.
Contributing To The Industry
We share projects and tools with the open-source community in order to help other engineers work more effectively.
Guilds Drive Innovation
We’ve worked to set up our guilds – groups that take ownership of different aspects of our technology. These guilds encourage exploration within our engineering community, help advance our technology and give team members the opportunity to own something meaningful while focusing on technical excellence.
Creating Efficient Processes
Our engineers are always raising the bar when it comes to team efficiency. We’ve created tooling that allows a one-click set-up of multiple environments.
