Our Stack

If you're reading this we'll assume you're technical, so let's start by talking about our stack.

We have an API written in Ruby on Rails. This is the 'backend brain' that powers pretty much everything.

We have a app that we're best known for. It's written in React Native and works seamlessly across iOS and Android using a shared codebase.

We have a dashboard that's private to our clients. It's written in React in a very similar code style to our app.

The Role

As a full-stacker you'll use your Rails & React skills to write the code that powers all three parts of our ecosystem.

Worked with React but never React Native? Don't worry, they're basically the same, and we'll skill you up.

Worked with React Native but never React? Again, that's cool, you'll pick it up in no time.
