Front End Developer

Experience with React/Native and Node.js

Our studio is looking for an experienced engineer with a solid track record and stable work history.

We're looking for someone with the confidence and expertise to assist in developing and managing our web and mobile applications. You’ll be leading our rapid prototyping and app dev projects and ensuring that the systems are well designed and maintained. You'll be working with a team of confident front-end developers and designers, junior and senior React and React Native Engineers, and the technical director.

We are designing and building software for companies in the medical, financial education, and the insurance industry. We also built a great water saving app during the Cape Town water crisis and rugby club app that takes payments from club members. We are a design-lead studio and we pursue our own internal projects from time to time to keep experimenting and applying our knowledge and expertise to personal projects where we see opportunities.

We value time off and encourage flexible working hours. The team is geared towards working remotely. We have team lunches on Wednesdays and work in a low-key relaxed studio environment. You'll find out more when we meet and have a chat.
