Senior Mobile Developer (React Native)

DeansList - New York or Remote - Full time

DeansList is hiring its first-ever, dedicated mobile developer. Interested? Read on!

Who is DeansList?

  • We’re a bootstrapped ed-tech company that creates software that helps schools run better.
  • Our SaaS platform is used in hundreds of innovative K-12 schools across the country.
  • We’re proud to partner with many traditionally underserved communities.
  • We tailor our software to the unique needs of each school.
  • We’re continually solving hard (aka interesting) problems.
  • We have the footprint and culture of a startup with the stability and resilience of a large company.
  • We’re used to working remotely; we’ve been doing it for almost five years.
  • We love delighting our customers with software and service that go beyond expectations.
  • We believe in work-life balance--an exhausted dev is not a creative dev.

Still reading? Here’s what to expect if you were to jump into this role:

  • You will become the proud new owner of our two mobile apps: DeansList for Educators and DeansList for Families.
  • Oh great, legacy code, right? Nope! We’re giving you the opportunity to rebuild them both from the ground up.
  • What’s the catch? No catch! React and React Native have evolved a lot of the last four years, and we want to push the reset button so that we can build with the latest and greatest.
  • We also want to leverage different screen sizes and orientations, which is something we don’t do well right now. Both the current apps are fixed in portrait mode.
  • Once the mobile apps are rebuilt, we want to start adding lots of awesome new features to make the DeansList experience even better.

This job is for you if:

  • You want to be part of helping deliver a top-notch education to hundreds of thousands of students.
  • You’re an ambitious, hard-working person who enjoys tackling big problems.
  • You’re as passionate about design as you are about writing code.
  • You're motivated by the challenge of creating user experiences that are elegant, intuitive, and extremely well-coded.
  • You thrive on constructive feedback from users and co-workers.
  • You feel comfortable designing for large and small screens alike.
  • You can work independently but know when to reach out for help.
  • You love learning and want to be on the cutting edge.
  • You think JavaScript is the bees knees and React/React Native is the best thing since sliced bread.
