Maybe you'd be a great fit for Jane's team.

React Native Developer

React Native expert? React savvy and looking to extend your ES6 and TypeScript skills to the world of native mobile app? We want you to join our team!

All job postings for tech start ups end up sounding the same, so we’ll try to communicate some specifics about what Jane is all about and if this might be the kind of company you want to be part of.

Jane is a home-grown, bootstrapped startup. This means we’ve been growing a real business out of our own revenue for over 5 years now. We have the luxury and security of not having a zero-cash date like some some ventured-backed companies.

Jane was founded by a product-person and a customer-person, who are now the Co-CEO’s. This means the two main teams at Jane (the product and the customer support team) are both led by doers who understand the job. We don’t have any suits here. We don’t even have a sales team. We’re building a really good product that is selling fast because people love it.

Jane’s dev team have a lot of autonomy. Our devs get to really own the projects they’re working on from beginning to end. We’re focusing a lot on code quality and getting to nerd out on exploring the best possible ways to build things. At the same time, we’re moving fast. Releasing updates daily and being really responsive to what we’re hearing from our users.

While users love Jane as much as we do, improved, native-mobile capabilities are in strong demand. This is where you come in.

Jane’s road map is exciting. Well, we think so. From integrating Jane with various insurance companies all over the world, to introducing new features like secure HIPAA compliant chat, to data-sciencing the massive amounts of data we’re accumulating and providing cool insights to our users, we’ve got a lot of great projects on the go.

Jane has a pretty great office in North Vancouver. Some of us go for an early morning run in the mountains before starting the day. Sometimes the whole office stops for a 15 minute yoga session led by one of our yogi support team members. We’ve got a ridiculously good coffee program and we tend to celebrate frequently with good food and drinks (the brewery across the street is helpful for that).

Our product team also has flexibility around their hours. Traffic sucks, so we don’t want people sitting in it. Some choose to start early, some start late and work late. Some do a split shift for a mid-day brain break. We’re open to figuring out a schedule that works.

So what are we specifically looking for?

  • Firm grasp of the JavaScript (ES6+) and TypeScript and its nuances
  • Experience with React Native
  • Knowledge of functional **programming
  • Ability to write well-documented, clean Javascript code
  • Rock solid at working with third-party dependencies and debugging dependency conflicts
  • Familiarity with native build tools, like XCode, Gradle, Android Studio, and/or IntelliJ
  • Understanding of REST APIs, the document request model, and offline storage
  • Experience with automated testing suites, like Jest or Mocha
  • Strong command of git
  • Familiarity with project management tools such as GitHub issues and/or Jira
  • Passion for making things better
  • Just a generally good human that we like to work with

Bonus points for:

  • Experience working in an Agile/Scrum development processes
  • Experience with Ruby, Ruby-on-rails, and Postgres

This is a unique opportunity to join an established, successful team while being able to have a strong, foundational voice in our fledgling mobile practice.
