Senior React Native Engineer

Forward Partners

The Role

As a Senior React Native Engineer, you will be responsible for the Fy! mobile experience to craft, own and develop as you see fit for both Android and iOS. As you can imagine, within the context of a small tech team, this is a large responsibility. However, this is also a huge opportunity to really own the development of this vital part of our customer-facing experience, and take pride in seeing it grow.

You will have the support of, and work collaboratively with, backend, frontend and data engineers to iterate on existing features and craft entirely new ones. Consequently, familiarity with expressing requirements in terms of APIs and focussed specifications is an important skill to bring to the table. Sympathy for the unique challenges of delivering a rich experience within the restrictions of limited hardware and network resources is also vital.

  • Wireframing and product design, familiarity with the UX process

Our Benefits

  • Our tech team is composed of experienced generalists and domain experts, and as such we are taking on complex, cross-cutting problems of the sort that normally require larger teams. We want you to be part of that, and to be excited by this opportunity.
