Early-stage venture-backed startup (Techstars Chicago ‘17) looking for a mobile engineer experienced with React Native to build great mobile experiences to improve professional relationship development.
 

Who we are

We’re a fast­-moving startup with a vision to empower all professionals by helping them build better relationships. Our goal is to fix the network gap: the inequality of opportunity driven by not having the right connections. To solve this problem, we’re combining the best practices of the world’s top relationship builders with artificial intelligence.

We’re building a mission­-driven team that strives to live out our values every day:

  1. Customer­-centricity

  2. Diversity of perspective

  3. Authenticity

  4. Growth (individual and collective)

  5. Impact

We’re an ambitious, driven team and we push ourselves to accomplish a lot quickly.  In the past year, we’ve been accepted to and graduated from one of the world’s top accelerators, raised a round of venture financing from world class investors, launched our product, rapidly grown our customer base, and architected a robust set of machine learning models as a core source of competitive advantage.  In the process, we’ve been named one of Chicago’s top 50 startups to watch - and we plan on giving the world even more to watch in year 2 and beyond!


What your role will be

We’re looking for an experienced mobile engineer to help build the 4Degrees app across a variety of platforms. You’ll develop and use a versatile set of skills: use React Native to improve our native mobile app, use Javascript to improve our Chrome extension and Outlook add-in experiences, and coordinate with the back-end and data layers.

You’ll combine platform ubiquity and great user experience to empower a new level of intelligence for relationship management. We’re building an industry-defining company that requires entirely new approaches; you’ll be a core part of that effort and will be comfortable experimenting, learning, and expanding the scope of what’s possible.
 

About you

  • Excited about the 4Degrees mission and believes in our core values

  • Thrives in a fast-paced environment, and is comfortable with experimentation and risk-taking

  • Driven by the opportunity to create impact, and takes full ownership of achieving personal and team objectives

  • Motivated to explore the potential for technology to augment people’s ability to form and strengthen professional relationships

  • Challenges existing industry best practices and takes inspiration from disparate sources to build a groundbreaking product

  • Collaborative mindset -­ recognizing that most great outcomes are accomplished by teams, not individuals


Skills you’ll need

  • Proficiency with React Native development for both iOS and Android

  • Proficiency with general Javascript development, particularly web requests (AJAX / XMLHTTPRequest / fetch)

  • Experience developing across multiple platforms (mobile app, web app, browser extension)
     

Skills that aren’t required, but we’d be really excited if you have

  • Experience with database architecture

  • Experience with offline sync systems
