    What makes us different

    • We use React Native on the frontend, sharing around 98% of the code between Android, iOS and Web. We use Typescript on the backend too!
    • We’re believers in functional programming. We concentrate state, minimise side effects and abstract when necessary.
    • We automate where there is a logical business case to do so..
    • Our biggest challenge is managing the complexity of sharing code across a suite of apps.

    • You’ve got experience in api, load and security testing.
    • You’ve worked within an agile development team.

    • You have introspective tendencies and are looking for a position where you can grow, fast.
