Empathy is on a mission to help families with everything they face after the loss of a loved one. With an exceptionally beautiful product, powered by tech and driven by purpose, we provide peace of mind by guiding families through all the tedious and time-consuming tasks that follow a loss, automating many of the processes so that they can focus on what matters instead.
We work fast, we take responsibility, and we marshal every resource and clever concept at our disposal to help families at the hardest time in their lives. It’s unique, rewarding work with many interesting challenges along the way.
We are a team of passionate generalists and independent team players constantly picking up new challenges. When it comes to code, we’re looking to work with experienced people who can lead technical domains, share their unique knowledge, and grow with us.
In this role you will:
Design, build and maintain our full mobile product suite.
Work with engineers, product managers, and designers to craft world-class experiences and participate in all aspects of the project lifecycle.
Define direction and set the groundwork for the future of the engineering team and the company.
What we’re looking for
A strong technical background, with 5+ years of professional, hands-on experience building mobile applications (iOS or Android).
Deep understanding of App Store and/or Play Store distribution processes and associated tools.
Comfortable learning Typescript and React Native.
Solid fundamentals in data models/structures, algorithms, and object-oriented programming, and knowledge of development best practices.
Strong attention to detail and empathy for the user experience.
Someone who enjoys learning, is self-motivated, and has the ability to switch domains as the needs of the company evolve.
Excellent communication skills.
Experience with React Native is a plus.
We use Typescript and build scalable systems so we can iterate quickly and maintain a solid foundation. We don’t expect you to have a background in everything we use, but we are looking for strong fundamentals.
React Native applications for iOS and Android, using hooks and minimal native code for advanced features.
Apollo and GraphQL for our APIs.
Node, Postgres, and Redis in the backend.
Hosted on AWS with Docker managed with Pulumi (Typescript).
