Senior Software Engineer (PHP)

Who we are…

Hallmark Labs (a subsidiary of Hallmark), based in Santa Monica, CA, is currently the brand owner of three digital subscription services: Feeln, Ink & Main, and Hallmark eCards. We focus on leveraging Hallmark’s experience with creating meaningful connections with great sentiments, but pushing it into the digital age at a rapid pace and with the cutting-edge technology.

Of course we have the normal perks for a company in Santa Monica: drinks, snacks, writable walls, collaboration spaces, casual dress, monthly catered lunches, ample parking - but we know that is not what you really care about. We are a small and growing company with a talented and driven group of professionals focused on building great things together, all while having fun!
