React or React Native Engineer - Part remote, R&D time
- 50% year on year growth in the business every year since being founded in 2014.
- Highly sociable office, with regular company and team trips and events.
- Flexi-time and remote working offered.
An early-stage disruptor within the fitness industry is looking to double the size of their development team and is currently looking for mid or senior-level developers with React and/or React Native experience. They’ve achieved some really impressive success with 50% year-on-year growth each year and are looking to continue that pattern, expanding across the UK and with a growing international presence as well. There’s a strong emphasis on both staff happiness and work/life balance, including flexi-time and remote working. It’s an incredibly exciting time to join the business!
What experience you'll need
- You’ll have a large amount of experience with React and/or React Native.
- Any knowledge of or experience with GraphQL.
- Any back-end experience with Node or Typescript, or infrastructure knowledge with ECS, Lambdas or Kinesis would all be beneficial to work alongside the back-end team. None of these are essential for this role however.
- Any design skills would be a nice bonus but not essential to the role.
The team is currently re-writing both their web and app front-end in React / React Native. They are in the process of ‘upgrading’ their tech stack; much of the team is currently developing new skills with React and React Native, however you’ll be key to the team bringing with you substantial previous experience. You’ll be working in a multi-skilled team of 6, looking to double in size by the end of the year. The focus of your work throughout 2018 will be helping implement a significant improvement in mobile first UX, whilst the back-end focused developers within the team update the internal systems. Ultimately this crucial work is about taking their service from MVP stage to a well-architected and scalable product. Some examples of the immediate projects are overhauling the booking system, social messaging service and more.
What you'll get in return for your talents
There’s a competitive salary on offer (£60K), as well as a list of benefits including unlimited holiday, company discount, pension, healthcare and more. They like their developers to find a way to work that suits them so the business operates both flexi-time and remote working. You’ll have the chance to work with a modern and progressive tech stack, as well as having dedicated training / R&D time within your working week. Should you want to attend conferences or events, or take part in an external training course, the business is open to supporting you in doing so, whether that’s with time or financially. They’ve just moved into new branded offices and there are some really cool ideas of what to build next, like an indoor climbing wall for example. There are regular team & company trips like paintballing, mountain biking etc. but it’s also very common for the team to spend time socialising, whether that’s drinks on a Friday or having lunch together. On top of all this, it’s an incredibly exciting time to join and help the company through its next ambitious growth stages, providing great opportunities for future progression.
