The Client :

They have a no internal politics and low bureaucracy culture, they encourage you to share your ideas and you will see them come to fruition. Its a 'leave your ego at the door' kind of culture. Everyone who works there is passionate about fighting global climate change so if this is you, get applying! 

The Role :

You'll be working on building out 2 mobile apps with React Native used by their customers. Working closely with the Principal Engineer and UX designer you will be responsible for building brand new features for their apps, writing clean maintainable code and mapping out their future roadmap. Being a part of a smaller team, you will see the fruits of your labour quickly and have a huge impact on ways of working and how the products are built. 

What will your day to day look like?
