We are building the future of freight
Mothership's groundbreaking technology is unlocking the world's potential by making freight delivery more efficient. Started in 2017, we're backed by some of venture capital's best investors and have already become the logistics backbone for many of today's most innovative companies.
To double down on that success, we’re looking for highly driven and detail-oriented individuals looking to add value, solve problems and join a rocket ship. If that's you, come help us reshape logistics. Together we'll replace tired and comfortable incumbents with a modern marketplace built around speed, ease of use and fairness. 
As Senior Software React Native Engineer, you'll get to spearhead our driver experiences on mobile with bold vision going from spec to production.
The ideal individual for this position is someone who relishes the opportunity to push product from the ground up and is looking for ownership to spread their wings and test the limits of new technologies. You’re focused on action and lead by example in a hands on and collaborative way.

  • Monitor performance using the latest tools to increase stability and efficiency
  • Work with our acquisition team to increase overall conversion through rigorous A/B and user funnel tests
  • Establish key metrics to indicate success or failure after new product rollouts 
  • Help build a world class team of mobile engineers around you

What success looks like in this role

  • Bachelor’s degree (or higher) in Computer Science or equivalent
  • 3+ years experience building dynamic, responsive, low latency and real-time user interfaces for high traffic mobile products
  • Significant experience deploying customer facing product
  • Deep knowledge of React Native and NodeJS built with Redux and Hooks
  • Experience doing in-person user research and effectively using the findings
  • Ability to build out component based front-end architecture
  • Experience working with designers communicating in a clear and concise way
