About the Role

Our team consists mostly of web converts, so don’t worry, you will have the time to learn the specialities of mobile iOS and Android platforms. You will collaborate closely with other engineers, product owners, and designers to develop high performing, maintainable, and joyful applications.

  • experience building applications using React Native or React
  • experience with automated testing, be it unit-, functional- and/or acceptance testing
  • a passion for software engineering best practices in a SCRUM/agile environment
  • interest in developing, deploying, monitoring, and maintaining native iOS and Android applications

What we value:
  • user testing, experimentation, automated testing and continuous integration to gain meaningful feedback for what we do
  • bettering our skills, teaching each other and learning ways to build better software
  • sharing knowledge and experience within the organization and in the community
