Full Stack Developer - Cover Ninja

Brighton and Hove

Closing date: 03/10/2018

Cover Ninja is a smartphone app connecting fitness venues requiring cover instructors with a community of qualified, validated fitness instructors.

Using technology, Cover Ninja saves time and improves efficiency for fitness instructors and venues alike when they need to source short-term cover for their classes, whilst helping cover instructors gain more work with less stress and according to their own personal preferences. Cover Ninja uses a smart filter process to source the most appropriate cover instructor to match a venue’s pre-set criteria.

Cover Ninja not only improves the ease of finding and securing cover, but it handles the whole cover process. This includes updating the venue timetable/software and providing relevant information for both parties, to generating invoices and administering payment to the instructor upon completion.

Job Description:

We are seeking a talented full-stack developer for an immediate start. We would however be open to splitting the role in two; Application Developer and Server-side Developer. 

We are looking for someone with experience in React Native to build our mobile applications for both iOS and Android. As well as building the apps, the successful candidate will be making structural and architectural decisions. 

In addition, we are seeking experience in server side development to build the back-end to Cover Ninja's infrastructure. Most importantly, the successful candidate will be both architecting and developing so should have experience in both designing and delivering APIs. At present, the groundwork is written in Node.js with a GraphQL API, but we are open to those with a range of language and platform experience.

Skills Range:

If the following describes most of your experience for App Development, we'd love to hear from you:

• You're experienced in React Native, including working with data stores (Redux or otherwise) and interacting with APIs (REST, GraphQL).

• You're not afraid to go native, writing native (Objective-C, Swift, Java, Kotlin) for both platforms, including native modules and integrations when needed.

• You have experience building apps for production, including using analytics, crash reporting and other tools as well as knowledge of the signing and app store submission processes.

• You have a good knowledge of modern tooling (eslint, continuous integration, git) and writing strong maintainable code.

If the following describes most of your server-side experience, we'd love to hear from you:

• You're proficient in both designing and building APIs and can clearly document and present your architecture choices to your peers.

• You have some experience in deploying APIs into production on cloud platforms (AWS, Google Cloud, Azure etc). You'll have experience with modern devops tooling (Docker, Kubernetes, Rancher, Docker Cloud etc) and maintaining and monitoring production systems.

• You can write clear and maintainable code, using linting, testing and continuous integration tools and of course, keep it all safe in Git.

• You are security focused and have a knowledge of best practices for keeping data safe and secure.

Person Specification:

We do not have a requirement for any specific educational qualifications - we'd just like to see what you've done that demonstrates your abilities.
