Do you embrace flexible working days and a suitable office environment? Do you want to scale the best parts of offices and eliminate the waste?
If so, at Orbit you have the opportunity to revolutionise how modern workers experience the office
Full-time, Remote (Norway/Spain)
Orbit is reinventing the workplace, and we are looking for people to join us on our mission to make a sustainable impact on the office experience.
Our app launched in January 2021 for both Android and iOS, so you will assist Orbit's development team to ensure that our apps and API run smoothly as we come to the end of our Beta testing and reach a wider audience as well as we grow the team.
As a mobile developer, you will help us fix the world-wide office capacity and waste problem by working on our React Native code base and you will get your hands dirty with iOS/Android native code when required (specially the part related to NFC as that is key for our office access management hardware). Not only that, but you will help Orbit bring the native app experience to the next level with your knowledge.
We are a product centric company, which means that you will be collaborating directly with everyone else to realise our product vision and iterate it. We believe that technology is a means to an end, not an end in itself. We are a startup and while our focus is our customers, we like trying new ideas, which is why we want to have a short feedback loop across the entire development process, from idea to deployment.
In 1 month
You will know the name of your colleagues (although we don’t expect you to be able to pronounce them correctly!). You will have a good understanding of the entire tech stack as well as Orbit’s mission and vision.
You will start getting familiar with our code base and you will start getting your hands dirty with the project and even getting your first pieces of code into the customer's hands.
In 3 months
You will be an active contributor to the team and you will have shipped a few features and bug fixes already.
You will have a better understanding of our app and you will start to identify and share the main areas of improvements, both for quality and performance, using your mobile development experience.
In 6 months
Our codebase will hold little secrets for you at this point. You will be a reference for the team in your native area of expertise.
You will have already implemented some improvements around our development process and architecture. You will be a key contributor to our testing and automation efforts.
You probably will also have pushed some PHP code to our API for adding that extra attribute you needed in the response of that existing endpoint.
You will embody, understand and improve on our guiding principles. You will make an impact at Orbit by making it a great place to work and a quality product you are proud of.
We don’t believe in silos and we aim to build T-shaped teams, where everyone is a master of their own trade but can roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty in other areas to keep things moving. If you are blocked because you are missing a simple CRUD endpoint in the API, we will expect you to get at it. The same way, we believe quality is the responsibility of the whole team and part of the individual development process, which is why we don’t have dedicated QA Engineers.
Regardless of your expertise, we are all part of the same team working towards the same goal. If someone fails, we all fail.
Being part of a small team, you will join us in our path to growth, which means that at times you will have to wear different hats and that the next step won’t always be obvious. We understand that this will be challenging and even frustrating at times, but the reward is complete and absolute trust and flexibility as well as a world of opportunity.
We are a small company (less than 20 people) and you will get to collaborate with everyone, but you will likely interact with these people on a daily basis.
We are open to anybody working from within the European Union. Our company is currently established in Norway and Spain, and we have a cool office in Norway Oslo (and considering opening one in southern Spain).
You are welcome to work 100% remote and/or work from our office in Norway (and Spain when available) at your own discretion. We also truly value work-life balance, which is why we offer a flexible working schedule. You know yourself better than anyone and you have our full trust (we wouldn’t employ you otherwise!), so as long as you are there for your team when needed, you decide.
You can read more about our current tech stack in our public handbook. You’ll realise that React Native was our obvious choice but we want you to be a big part of making Orbit tech grow beyond our initial MVP. In other words, we are looking for an experienced mobile developer with a curious mindset and attitude who learns quickly.
You will score a huge plus if.
