Role Description

Join a fast-growing start-up helping the modern parent. We're building a way for parents to outsource household tasks to people in their community that they trust. First on the list? Transportation for pre-teens and teens.

Right now we're live in the suburbs of NYC, Phoenix, Houston, and Dallas, with a growing number of parents and drivers relying on us for rides on a daily basis. We're looking to bring on an empathetic, proactive team member as a mobile software engineer. Sound like you? If so, read on.

You’ll have ownership over the VanGo mobile apps and work with a small team of outsourced developers to ship new features and improvements regularly. As a member of an early stage start-up, you'll be wearing many hats, but these are the responsibilities that would be under your purview.

What you’ll be working on:

  • Work collaboratively with design/product and other engineers to build new features, fix issues, and continually make improvements to the mobile apps
  • Translate and break down product requirements into actionable items and tasks
  • Implement and enforce best practices for the mobile code base and architecture

What we’re really looking for:

  • 2+ years of hands-on engineering experience
  • 1+ years of React Native experience
  • Strong attention to detail, quality and effective communication
  • A good mobile UI/UX sense

Nice-to-haves :):

  • Experience working with remote or outsourced teams
  • Experience with native iOS and/or Android mobile development
