We're looking to hire a talented mobile software engineer who's eager to work in a modern tech stack to build iOS and Android apps used by hundreds of thousands of people. This position is for Sleeker App Studios, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sparksuite.

About Sparksuite

At Sparksuite, we build industry-leading software companies and combine the exciting, fast-paced environment you'd expect at a startup with the stability and work-life balance of a profitable, decade-old company. We relentlessly pursue high quality software, efficient workflows, and incredible customer service, and bring together people who are as passionate about those goals as we are. Sparksuite's role, specifically, is to furnish our family of companies with the resources they need to thrive and ensure working for any of our companies is a rewarding experience.

About Sleeker App Studios

The company you'd be working for, Sleeker App Studios, produces functional and meaningful mobile apps. Most notably, we're the team behind GradePro, an app used by parents and students all across the country to check grades, attendance, and assignments on the go.

The job

Your first endeavor will be to rewrite the Android version of GradePro using React Native and catch it up to speed feature-wise with its iOS counterpart. Once that's complete, we'll migrate the iOS version of GradePro to React Native and build new features and improvements for both apps. We also expect to introduce new apps in the future, which you'd be very much involved in.

Requirements & skills

  • Pride in your work. You genuinely take pride in designing software that is highly polished, maintainable, and intuitive. You care about writing easy-to-understand code and perfect a feature's functionality before moving on.
  • Quick learner. You have an innate ability to learn quickly, especially when it comes to working with new codebases or technologies. You strive for a thorough understanding of the tools you use, rather than hacking things together.
  • Great problem solver. You are persistent and resourceful when solving challenges, yet not afraid to seek help. You choose the solution that's harder when it's better in the long-run.
  • Past experience. A solid understanding of JavaScript, React Native, iOS, and Android is required. Experience with the other technologies we use at Sleeker App Studios would be a plus.

Benefits & compensation

We're committed to putting our team members first. That includes holistic compensation with predictable, built-in raises and pairing that with awesome benefits and perks. For all the details, see our transparent employee handbook and open salary calculator.

Other details

This is a full-time role at our office in The Woodlands, TX. You'll be expected to work 40 hours per week, Monday-Friday, during our flexible office hours. At this time, we are unable to sponsor visas.
