Take the lead on a new and exciting project within the company, developing a mobile version of Challengermode to further our mission of making esports truly accessible to everyone.
We’re looking for an experienced Fullstack Web / App Developer that is able to assume the overarching responsibility for the development of the mobile version of Challengermode’s platform. You will be working with a talented team of hard-working developers, designers, and product managers.
The role primarily involves end-to-end ownership of the development and deployment of native mobile apps based on web technology for iOS and Android. But also the development of new and existing features, working on performance and scalability improvements, as well as technical design and architecture of the platform and apps more broadly.
The platform has a micro-service architecture and is primarily built with web technologies like ASP.NET and React. However, nothing is static, and as tools and frameworks evolve, so do we. To meet current and future challenges we’re always looking for better ways of working, new frameworks to adopt, and we value staying on the cutting edge so long as it serves our goals and leads to better user experiences.
Although we'd like for you to be familiar with these technologies, it's more important that you are not only able to learn and adapt but really want to learn new stuff and adapt to better ways of doing things.
WHO YOU ARE
You have worked with mobile/web applications in the past and have the scars and experiences to show for it (i.e. a proven track-record). You enjoy learning about new technologies and are experienced enough to be able to assess the relative merits of different frameworks. To be successful at Challengermode it’s necessary that you’re a self-starter, can take initiatives, and have a solution-oriented mindset. You’ll receive a lot of responsibility but also a lot of freedom. We often say “don’t ask for permission, ask for forgiveness” because we trust people’s judgments and we want to move fast. You should be someone who enjoys having a lot of autonomy and ownership as you will be wholly trusted to do your job - just like you can rely on all your teammates to do theirs.
4+ years of experience within app, web development and/or software engineering or a comprehensive set of skills and experiences that can attest to your expertise.
Experience in building mobile apps with React Native or similar cross-platform frameworks, as well as publishing to and maintaining apps on the app stores.
Experience with building responsive and Progressive Web Apps (PWA).
You understand what it means to build secure and scalable systems for the modern web.
You have an engineering mindset (e.g. problem solving, first principles thinking, understand design, and research e.t.c).
Excellent communication skills in both written and spoken English.
You have a Computer Science (or equivalent) degree - or the experience to make up for that.
Bonus points if you have:
Experience with native mobile app development for iOS and/or Android.
A gaming or esports hobby! You watch and/or play esports games. It's easier to create great gaming experiences if you understand the users' needs yourself.
