Senior Mobile Engineer (react-native)

Team: Product & Technology

Location: London

We are Hostmaker – nice to meet you!

Hostmaker is a Series B funded fast-growing business backed by institutional funding from technology, hospitality and real estate investors. We have scaled rapidly in just five years across major international destinations with offices in London, Paris, Cannes, Rome, Florence, Barcelona, Madrid, Lisbon, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and more to come!

We are revolutionising the homestay experience through our end-to-end property management service, providing thoughtful interior design to attentive hotel-style services. Not only do we offer memorable stays, we utilise our strength in dynamic pricing to deliver superior yields for property investors, landlords with multiple properties, and even individual homeowners.

We are an excited bunch as we’ve come in at #3 on Deloitte’s UK Tech Fast50 2018 and named as one of the 100 European start-ups to watch in 2019! Being recognised among such dynamic peers means the world to us, though we are still keeping our focus firmly on our mission to unlock the potential of every home.

Our Culture

Our culture is important to us. We are a diverse bunch; the pigeons who flock here are curious, creative and determined to go beyond the brief for our hosts, guests and for each other. We aim to create the best environment possible for them to let their talent shine through. 

What will you be doing? 

The product you'd be working on powers all of our operations across our eight main cities. You'll be building a tool that will be used by thousands of people daily to plan their working days, maintain our beautiful homes and greet our guests.

You'd also be instrumental in building a new iteration of our app on the latest React Native stack, using Kotlin and Swift and working with technologies such as NFC, payments and ID scanning.

There will be opportunities to work directly with other engineers, UI/UX designers, QAs and the Product team on your squad. Because we work in the same office as many of our frontline staff, you will also have a chance to directly interact with your day-to-day users and get immediate feedback on new features.

What can you bring?

  • 4+ years' on-the-job experience
  • Strong experience of either iOS or Android development, either fully native or using a framework such as React Native / Ionic / Flutter.
  • You've worked with distributed version control systems such as Git or Mercurial, and loved them
  • Experience working in distributed/remote teams
  • Direct experience building and publishing React Native apps would be a bonus.
  • Experience working with CI/CD pipelines would be a bonus.
  • Experience in API development using Express.js backed by SQL database would be a bonus.
