We’re a newly established mobile team with a number of native mobile projects currently in development and are looking to expand the team to meet new business objectives.
We’re building a team to work fluently, move fast and make a tangible difference in Energy tech. Our current projects span Electric Vehicles, Energy accounts, Smart home devices, Acquisitions and Engineer solutions.
You’ll be working to solve problems at a global scale. You’ll help define culture and processes necessary to work collaboratively and effectively across multiple product teams, whilst instilling good engineering practices for the team as a whole.
Being a fairly new team without the constraints of large legacy codebases has enabled us to make modern technology choices. All our apps are built with declarative UI (Jetpack Compose & SwiftUI), all our APIs are built in GraphQL, and we use a modern selection of libraries and software development techniques.
The mobile teamwork across multiple projects, some developed exclusively for Android and others for iOS, we make use of Kotlin Multiplatform in larger projects. We’re really excited by this cutting-edge technology and are enjoying the journey.
We’re looking for like-minded product-focused engineers to come along for the ride.
You’ll be someone who thrives on uncertainty and loves to make an impact. You’ll be passionate about what you do and that shows through your enthusiasm and communication. Your values will align with that of the company’s, you’ll care about sustainability and creating a better future for our planet. You’ll enjoy contributing across the whole development process including design, product management and stay on top of upcoming technologies that could benefit the business.
