React OR React Native Developer

Since 2008, we at Qvik have been build­ing mobile exper­i­ences for con­sumers, e.g. in the fields of media, fin­ance, travel and mobil­ity, and retail. If you’ve used Yle Uutis­vahti media ser­vices or MaaS Global’s Whim app for com­mut­ing, booked trips through Aurinko­matkat, traveled with Tallink Silja or used Sanoma’s Aku Ankka Lataamo app to read car­toons, our developers and design­ers have been there to cre­ate your digit­al exper­i­ence. We also sup­por­ted our cus­tom­er St1 to bring Apple Pay to Fin­land by build­ing St1 Finance’s mobile app and infra­struc­ture as well as the Apple Pay integ­ra­tion. We are also cur­rently cooper­at­ing with major Finnish com­pan­ies in the fields of, for example, fin­ance and logist­ics, on ser­vices that most Finns will be using in the near future.

Do these sound like pro­jects you would have liked to work on? If so, come and work with our next ones!

Responsibilities

We’re now look­ing for new Qvikies to join our front-end team! In this role you’ll get a chance to col­lab­or­ate with busi­ness and API teams to build simple, scal­able and innov­at­ive mobile and web exper­i­ences. You’ll man­age the com­plete devel­op­ment cycle includ­ing test­ing, integ­ra­tion, and pub­lish­ing. We will, of course, offer you col­leagues who’ll help you fur­ther to mas­ter (nat­ive) apps using only one code­base – and all the tools needed to cre­ate superb things with JavaS­cript!

We have React / React Nat­ive Qvikies in teams work­ing at, for example, our media, travel, and fin­ance sec­tor cus­tom­ers.

What we're looking for

You have exper­i­ence in build­ing web or mobile applic­a­tions. If you don’t have a mobile developer back­ground, not to worry. We have a house full of those to guide you in the right dir­ec­tion. Motiv­a­tion has to come from you, we’ll sup­port you with the rest.

Pre­vi­ous exper­i­ence in React and/or React Nat­ive framework(s) is needed. Your deep expert­ise of JS and CSS allow you to optim­ize your code for fool­proof per­form­ance. Your forte is a strong know­ledge of “Vanilla” JavaS­cript. Also an under­stand­ing of Android and iOS eco­sys­tems – and their guidelines for app devel­op­ment – are things that interest you and that you, prefer­ably, already mas­ter. You’re also someone who’s equally pas­sion­ate about what makes great UX as well as sol­id front-end archi­tec­ture.

You have exper­i­ence inter­fa­cing with REST APIs, writ­ing unit tests, using npm and mag­ni­fi­cent debug­ging and troubleshoot­ing skills. A bonus is if you embrace such skills as exper­i­ence using Flexbox lay­out, imple­ment­ing Flux pat­tern, and Javas­cript ES6 & ES7 fea­tures. Also, Finnish skills are seen as a plus, depend­ing on the cli­ent, in some cases even man­dat­ory.

What we can offer

This part is clear: we offer some pretty cool pro­jects for our developers and design­ers. Some of our latest pro­jects have been related to, for example, mobil­ity and travel, pay­ments and machine learn­ing.

A big part of our com­pet­ence devel­op­ment comes through every­day work, but we also have guilds, meetups and coach­ing to sup­port Qvikies in their pro­fes­sion­al growth. Our bene­fits pack­age is nice and extens­ive, includ­ing lunch, sports and cul­ture coupons; com­muter bene­fit;  work equip­ment of your choice and phone sub­scrip­tion; occu­pa­tion­al health care with extra insur­ances; mas­sage at the office; annu­al employ­ee bonus; and many sports and hobby pos­sib­il­it­ies with oth­er Qvikies. In spring 2019, we will also have a villa in Maur­i­ti­us for Qvikies and their fam­il­ies to share to have a hol­i­day or work remotely.
