We're looking for an engaged and knowledgeable Front-End App Engineer with passion for UI Design to join our product team. An opportunity to immerse yourself in a fast-paced, fluid, and friendly work environment.

We're taking youth sports communication to the next level, designing delightful experiences, and we're growing quickly. Our plans for the upcoming years are big, and we'd love for you to join us on our journey. We have two offices in Sweden (Stockholm and Örebro), but also a strong remote work culture, so you can join from wherever you wish.

Our goal is to build a team for the long run. We look for people that match the inclusiveness of our product and the diversity of its users. Your personality and values are every bit as important to us as your skills and experience.

Who we are 

Heja is the home where youth sports teams grow together. It’s where they coordinate their activities, where they chat and where they share photos, moments and memories. 

The Heja team are passionate about the positive impact team sports have on young people, and the world: from building lasting friendships and encouraging healthy lifestyles, to bridging cultures. Our vision is that young people everywhere should have access to team sports and its benefits.

Heja first launched in 2017. In just over two years we've grown to 1,000,000 users with sports teams in the US, UK, Australia, New Zealand, among others. 

In that time, Heja has raised $4,5 million and is backed by industry leaders and renowned VCs, including Luminar Ventures, Max Ventures, Inbox Capital (Mysql, Min Doktor, Fishbrain, Barnebys), Bonnier Ventures, and Caroline Ingeborn (Toca Boca). Read more on Di Digital (Swedish).

About the position

You'll join a curious, open-minded, and self-governing team. We're honest and not afraid to speak our minds, and we rely on the trust, support, and knowledge of our teammates.

We're motivated by building elegant and straightforward solutions – we'd like you to share this passion with us.

You’ll be focusing on our app, mainly working with React Native and making sure we deliver a great product to our users. Building a world-class app is hard; we expect that you should be able to help us tackle some of these challenges:

  • Build beautiful experiences
  • Tight animations
  • Keeping the client lean (not building a monolith)
  • New features for a best-in-class experience
Recruitment process

We believe that a conversation is better than a CV. So please write us a short introduction about yourself. How you would describe yourself, what your interests are and your previous experience, and we'll get back to you. 


Due to current restrictions first Interviews will be digital and in the process you will meet future colleagues in the product team, Product Owner, CTO and finally our CEO.
