Brainscape is a profitable, fast-growing, education startup with over 5 million registered users. Our mission is to simplify and accelerate the learning process via digital flashcards, adaptive algorithms, and cognitive science.
We seek a React Native engineer to develop our mobile app for both iOS and Android. The React Native app is already live with many happy users, but only on Android.
The first project will replace an existing native iOS app with near feature parity; but with a new, modern UI that has been created via a rigorous design process. All features will be implemented for both iOS and Android with frequent parallel releases.
Once the native iOS app has been replaced, you will continue to work on the React Native app across both platforms. You will suggest new user interactions and make existing interactions better with UI & UX improvements, and you will keep the mobile app in relative feature parity with the web app.
This is a huge opportunity to create a very high-impact product, which will be used by a large and growing number of learners of all ages. We are excited to find the right passionate engineer for this position.
• Transform our simple Android-only React Native application into a cross-platform (iOS & Android) app that can replace our existing native iOS app, with feature parity, on an aggressive timeline
• Implement clean, attractive interfaces based on mock-ups generated by UX & UI designers
• Implement smooth interactions & animations to increase user engagement
• Suggest new features, and participate in technical design sessions to translate into requirements
• Work with Q/A team to design manual and automated tests of the features you implement
• At least five years of experience in software development
• At least one year of experience with React Native with live app(s)
• Ability to work in a small, distributed team with tight communication & project management rigor
• Bonus: A passion for education, self-development, and/or habit-building.
