React Native Javascript

1. React Native Engineer

 

Leika is building a sexual well-being platform that will transform women’s relationship to sex. Our app takes women on a journey of self-discovery so they can understand their minds and bodies in ways they’ve never done before. Leika helps women discover pleasure. Join us, the two co-founders - Anna and Billie - on this exciting journey. We believe so strongly that this business needs to exist in the world and our community is already actively championing Leika amongst their friends. We came together during a social impact accelerator, Zinc VC. They set us a mission ‘To transform the mental and emotional health of women and girls’ and we went where others were too scared to go - the taboo around female sexuality. If you are bold, bright and believe in having an impact, we want to hear from you! 

 

We're  Looking for an Outstanding React Native Engineer to Join our CTO

As a React Native Engineer you’ll be able to clearly see your impact in what we deliver day-to-day to our users whilst also becoming part of a culture that welcomes participation and discussion at all levels.

Responsibilities

You'll play a key role in the conception of our product, and build robust and scalable native mobile applications for our users across the globe. You'll work closely with the CTO to ensure that we put down solid foundations so that we can build an amazing product going forward, and integrat the mobile app with our backend. You'll have an amazing opportunity to help define the processes and tech stack that will build our product and business for the years to come. More than that, you’ll be part of a culture that welcomes participation and discussion at all levels!
