Mobile Frontend Engineer (React Native)

Salary Competitive

Are you an experienced mobile frontend developer (3 years experience) ready to take the leap and grow with an award-winning and fast-scaling startup that is expanding internationally?

Bower’s vision is to make recycling a rewarding no-brainer and create a world free from trash. We’re aiming to become the first impact tech unicorn in Sweden, helping +1B consumers make sustainable choices by rewarding them for doing the right thing.

We are growing at a rapid rate and you will be a driving force in growing our tech team in Stockholm. Since our launch in 2019, we’ve grown to over 300 thousand users with customers in 5 countries (Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, United States) with several more market entries to come.

Are you up for the challenge?

We're looking for someone who is willing to:

  1. Improve our app with top-quality.
  2. Build up our in-house developer team together with our remote team.

Are you ready to improve our current React Native app with great user experience and scalable frontend infrastructure? Some of the challenges include multi-lingual localization, multi-market functionality, authorization, feature flagging, barcode scanning, a camera heavy app with machine learning features, as well as eye-catching design, including animation.

From the design perspective, you need to understand how to translate great design into great code, and have a great sense of what can be accomplished in React Native.

From the backend perspective, you need to work closely with our backend developers to create a high performant app with many internal and external API-couplings, third party libraries, native libraries.

Do you have what it takes?

  • We're looking for competent frontend app developers that have 1-3 years experience. We're still a small company, so you we expect you to take responsibility for your role and be a leading role in the tech team.
  • You have a genuine interest in consumer app solutions and are passionate about changing a traditional industry.
  • You’ve got experience from working with companies in their early stages with a strong entrepreneurial culture, and are eager to join a fast-scaling startup in its international expansion journey.
  • You’ve got at least 3 years of experience as a frontend/fullstack app developer.
  • You're familiar with our tech stack: React Native, React-Saga, Native libraries for both Android and iOS, Unit testing libraries, CI/CD.
  • Also: Pixel perfect designs, offline mode development, end-to-end testing, unit testing, multi-lingual localization, and understanding design tools (Figma).
  • These words tickle you: app optimization, large-scale data, consumer insights, crowdsourcing, machine learning, agile processes, UX-design, animation, coaching, business mindset...
  • You can plan for a future ahead, ensuring great scalability – while at the same time being pragmatic, understanding our business goals and not over-doing it by building a high-tech rocket ship just for the sake of it.
  • You're someone who can communicate highly technical and complex issues in an easy and comprehendible way.
  • You’re a person with integrity.
  • You're good with people.
  • You live in Sweden, want to be part of building our culture at the office but at the same time communicate and lead work with our remote team.
  • You’re fluent in English (and preferably also in Swedish).

Why we think you should join us...

As a Mobile Frontend Engineer at Bower, you’ll be part of an award-winning team passionate about creating a global recycling movement.

We believe that a brilliant person with the right ambition can really leverage their time at Bower. We are growing fast, and with us, so will you.

Bower’s vision is to make recycling a rewarding no-brainer and create a world free from trash. We’re aiming to become the first impact tech unicorn in Sweden, helping +1B consumers make sustainable choices by rewarding them for doing the right thing. We’re a bold and visionary, yet down-to-earth and heart-centered, tech company based in Stockholm. Our mission is to reduce the number of packaging that ends up as trash in nature and increase recycling rates by giving all packaging a value in monetary terms – ”pant” – just like with PET bottles and cans in Sweden. That’s why we’ve developed a world-unique mobile app that rewards recycling of all consumer packaging at regular recycling bins. We are first-movers with global customers such as Procter & Gamble, Unilever and Mondelez, currently operating in Sweden and in USA. We have a revolutionarily scalable business model where the only thing we need to do to scale up to other markets is to pinpoint the GPS coordinates of already existing recycling stations. In cases where we lack this data, consumers upload the stations themselves. We've been on the top lists of both App Store and Google Play in Sweden since we launched in August 2019. Bower is an award-winning startup: - Winners of Norrsken People’s Choice Award 2019 - Winners of Carnegie’s prize Future Entrepreneurs 2019 - Winners of PwC’s prize Social Entrepreneurs of the Year 2018 - Winners of Nordea’s Largest Impact Within 5 Years Check out our rebranding film to get a feel for us:
