About the Role


As a Mobile Engineer at Applecart, you will have the opportunity to help launch a consumer-facing mobile app from the ground up. You’ll join the App Team, where you’ll have significant ownership over our end product, implementing brand new features straight out of user research and using the results of user testing to iterate on existing features. You will be exposed to a wide arrange of responsibilities, from working with the backend engineers on your team, to partnering with product and marketing on new feature roll-outs. Your end-product will be directly in the hands of our users and drive significant earnings for everyday consumers as well as business value for both Applecart and our partners.



What you will do:



  • Work closely with product and design colleagues to build a low friction, high quality experience on iOS and Android

  • Ideate on innovative solutions to findings surfaced across user research sessions and beta testing

  • Collaborate on estimates, mock-ups and prioritization for new feature rollouts



Qualifications:



  • 3+ years of software development experience with a minimum of 2 years of React Native experience

  • Experience building front-end applications with React, having spent time understanding its core principles and using key libraries (e.g. Flux or Redux)

  • Track record of using various testing frameworks (e.g. Jest and Enzyme) and patterns (unit vs. functional) to boost code quality, challenge assumptions and enable collaboration

  • Ability to build and maintain, interactive mobile applications with a smooth UX/UI experience

  • Experience working with RESTful APIs and optimizing calls for performance (often means knowing when to make a call async vs sync, whether to cache)

  • Ability to work in an agile environment, constantly measuring, iterating  and improving the mobile app (you’ll be able to lean on your product manager, data analyst, and data scientist colleagues!)



Preferred Qualifications:



  • Experience publishing and distributing apps via Test Flight, the iOS App Store, or the Google Play Store

  • Experience with deep linking (using Branch.IO, URIs) and implementing in-app analytics (with tools like Flurry or Segment)

  • Experience working with Typescript
