React Native Developer

Our goal is to become the leading Microsoft Gold Partner in the UK solely focussed on building and running mission-critical solutions using cloud-native technologies.

State-of-the-art front end technology is key to our solutions. We use container-based cloud native technologies, providing competitive advantage through speed of innovation, increased reliability and security.

We have a strong background in mobile apps, for both consumer and business audiences. We are also moving increasingly to static site generators, such as Gatsby, consuming REST and GraphQL microservice APIs. We therefore are now focussed on React Native as the main platform for native app development.

Our focus on mission-critical systems naturally means that systems are larger and more complex than most apps and often involve real-time websocket comms alongside video and audio streams. Our solutions often have multiple front ends used by consumers or staff, both web applications and native mobile applications. We use modern DevOps pipelines and employ tools to help us focus on performance, security and accessiblity.

Regardless of the customer or user, a consumer-level experience is key and our front end developers are a vital element of our team and we're looking for developers who have a real ambition to work as part of an expert team and grow individually.
