PrettyQuick is changing the way that women in Chicago find and book beauty services. Through our innovative real time BeautyAlert technology, busy professionals, travelers and moms on the go can find and book the beauty services they want quickly and easily.
The responsive web is cool and all, but apps are where it’s at right? That’s what our customers are telling us! We are looking for a passionate front-end developer who will bring their awesome skills to help us build a new native app for the PrettyQuick platform. The ideal candidate will be located in Chicago, but we will consider a remote candidate if they possess the right mix of skills.

- You’ve built at least one mobile app using technologies such as PhoneGap, Cordova or Titanium
- You tried to book a haircut once and thought it was annoying to have to call and wait on hold only to have the distracted receptionist to tell you they were busy.

- Production experience with at least one front-end framework such as BackboneJS, AngularJS or EmberJS. Angular experience preferred
