React Native / Full-Stack JS Developer

At Trippin, we believe travel changes lives. We’re pretty new on the scene but we’re on a mission to redefine the travel experience and are looking for another developer to join us on this journey.

We’re based just off Brick Lane, London but we’re happy for you to work remotely too. We will offer a competitive salary and equity for the right candidate. We believe a diverse company is a better company. Whatever your story, we want to hear from you.

Job Description:

A little about us:

Trippin began in 2016 as a private Facebook group. As location-independent creatives/influencers themselves, the founders wanted a place where they could collect and share their off-the-beaten track discoveries with their like-minded global network.

Initially limited to just 1.5k members, the Facebook group received overwhelming demand for membership. This demand and a desire to create a more dynamic way of sharing/creating content drove the founders to turn their full focus on developing Trippin as a tech-enabled platform.

Within the existing market they found an opportunity to create a new channel through which to serve legitimate friend-sourced experience recommendations under a captivating lifestyle brand.

Our stack consists of a React Native app, communicating with a Node.JS backend deployed on Heroku, storing user data in an event-sourced MongoDB, and GraphQL in between. All of our code is strongly typed using Flow. We’ve also got a shiny React/Next.js webapp that we’re looking to develop further.

What you’ll be doing:
We recently launched this new app on iOS; it’s a great first step, but obviously, we need to constantly improve it to make the experience even better.

– You’ll be responsible for the future direction of the product from a technical perspective
– You’ll be making architectural & infrastructure decisions affecting the whole product
– You’ll be working in close collaboration with our Head of Product
– You are happy to take ownership of all technical aspects of the product

Who we are looking for?
Above all else we value open communication and good teamwork to achieve a shared vision. We are looking for proactivity in spotting problem areas and proposing ideas for improvements.

Someone who:
– Understands what our users like, and believe in our ethos of keeping things simple.
– Is serious about releasing early and releasing often.
– Loves React Native
– Has been writing code over the last few years and are comfortable showing it during the interview.
– Does not shy away from open-source work and open discussions on GitHub

Even better if you have (but not necessary):
– Contributed to Open Source projects (we’d love to see them!)
– Experience with iOS and/or Android development.
– A degree in Computer Science or a related field.
