Phillip Dean

Engineering Manager

I lead the architecture design and development across our platform and individual products, helping us prototype, build, deliver and scale new shopping experiences for our communities.

My journey

At a young age, my passion towards computer science was beginning while I started building computers with my father. In middle school, as the internet ripened, I started playing with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript building simply UI’s and websites and I never stopped developing. During my career, I’ve had to pleasure to be one of the first employees at start-ups, like Kizzang, a gaming platform for virtual slots or Atomized, a marketing software system used by ESPN and Warner Brothers to manage creative assets. At larger enterprises, I helped Staples and Eddie Bauer bring their web stores onto modern frameworks. At Amazon, in advertising technologies, I help launched a new suite of tooling to vendors and sellers across the globe. At, I help lead and manage a world class team of engineers where we deliver our communities with first-class, intuitive user experiences that bring value, while we create and foster a culture of engineering excellence.

What lead me to

I really enjoyed meeting the team and seeing their passion for creativity and expression. I was excited to see the joy the team had developing and creating brands and products that empowered both shoppers and brands.

Why I choose to work here every day.

I love coming to work because I know I am surrounded by supportive peers that bring out the best in my work. The freedom and flexibly to be yourself is encouraged. Everyone has a voice to make impacting change for the products and communities.

3 things I go all in for.


Great Outdoors

I am an avid outdoors person, from surfing to climbing volcanoes. I love immersing myself into a challenging outdoor environment after some screentime.



I use computer science and developing as a creative outlet to express myself.



I just started the journey to get my PPL here at the Santa Monica Airport in sunny southern California!

The value I feel most strongly. about is...

Innovation Upwards and onwards! I thrive in an innovation environment. Constantly, challenging the status quo, while inventing something new provides an every changing landscape where I’m always learning and teaching.
