You will develop and enhance the web front-end and mobile apps (current React and React Native, respectively) developing a product that meets the needs of our rapidly growing userbase. This includes driving the product roadmap, bringing "design thinking" on product features, coordinating development efforts across the team, and working alongside designers to iterate on product UI/UX.

  • You have clear, effective communication skills, both written and verbal
  • You have experience with agile practices, including pair programming, TDD/BDD, continuous delivery, object oriented design, etc
  • You are comfortable with asynchronous development: GitHub workflow, chat, email, etc
