• Leverage native APIs for deep integrations with both platforms.

• Diagnose and fix bugs and performance bottlenecks for performance that feels native.

• Maintain code and write automated tests to ensure the product is of the highest quality.

• Transition existing Apps written in Swift and Java to React Native to create a new, performant and saleable code base

• Work with the existing API backend to implement existing features

• Work with the backend team to implement new features

Skills

• Firm grasp of the JavaScript language and its nuances, including ES6+ syntax

• Knowledge of functional and object orientated programming

• Ability to write well-documented, clean Javascript code

• Rock solid at working with third-party dependencies and debugging dependency conflicts

• Familiarity with native build tools, like XCode, Gradle, Android Studio etc.

• Understanding of REST APIs, the document request model, and offline storage

• Working knowledge of Redux and how to implement effective app-wide data stores

• Ability to deploy apps to the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
