at FTSY in Vancouver
Build cool tech that matters
Digital Animal Interactive is an innovative, Vancouver-based company that is focused on changing the way that people buy shoes online. At Digital Animal, we believe in better. Our technologies are the backbone of better digital UX, better conversions for our partners and, most importantly, better consumer purchasing experiences. Our first product, FTSY (‘footsie’), highlights our first in a series of digital products that we are building from the ground up.
We’re a team of doers. We research, discover, design and deliver disruptive technologies as a quick & nimble team of self-starters. We are a diverse team with talents and backgrounds in the areas of software development, marketing and business. We are focused on building a thoughtful team that uses multidisciplinary approaches to solve meaningful problems. We value innovation and honesty, integrity and empathy, as well as hard work and work-life balance. You’ll be joining a competitive team looking to challenge status-quo digital commerce experiences.
