About The Team:

Our mobile team builds both mobile platform and product at Wave. Our mobile platform allows all Wave engineers to build for our customers’ devices, and our apps empower small business owners to do their best work wherever and whenever they need to. 

About Mobile at Wave:

We build on a combination of native iOS and Android, as well as React Native. This means that we welcome anyone with iOS, Android, or React Native (or other!) mobile development experience, and we expect that you’ll be comfortable learning how to build for more than one platform when you get here. We use continuous integration to run test suites on every commit. We cultivate a culture of shared ownership by doing code reviews for every pull request, and learning opportunities such as mentorship programs and bi-weekly workshops.

Here's how you will make an impact:

    • Develop the technical strategy that will shape how Wave builds and maintains its suite of mobile products.
    • Lead a small, agile, integrated product team that’s focused on continual improvement of their skills and helping each other learn new things.
    • Empower other engineering teams to work with the Mobile platform through tools and training.
    • Work with product, design and other technical teams to execute on long-term vision for how our mobile offering fits into the overall customer experience.
    • Write clear, concise, elegant, and well-tested code in Swift/Objective-C
    • Work with Android, React-Native, and web code bases to ensure interoperability and feature parity.
    • Build something that will make the lives of real people easier.

You'll thrive here if you:

    • Are more interested in building compelling mobile products and platforms than working in a specific language or technology stack.
    • Have managed releases to the App Store and/or Play store.
    • Have an opinion on how Wave should leverage mobile devices for our customers.
    • Are interested in leading technical projects from inception to delivery.
    • Are borderline obsessive about testing and quality of workmanship.
    • Are curious and excited about technology as a force for good.
    • A strong written and oral communicator.

You'll get to work with this incredible team:

    • Talent Acquisition: Helenja has been embedded within the Toronto tech start-up scene for a number of years now, working on both the recruitment and HR management side of things. Her mission is to foster and discover diverse talent while elevating the candidate journey along the way. Her adaptability and relentless enthusiasm has allowed her to work and scale many teams with ease. Although we describe her as calm and efficient, she has asked to be described as the boardgame master.
