We're looking for an engaged and knowledgeable App Engineer 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 over 600,000 users with sports teams in the US, UK, Australia, New Zealand, among others.
In that time, Heja has raised $2.8 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 the things making it run like the bridge and native coding in Objective-C/Java. Building a world-class app is hard; we expect that you should be able to help us tackle some of these challenges:
- App start time/experience
- Robust networking
- Tight animations
- Keeping the client lean (not building a monolith)
- New features for a best-in-class experience
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.
There will be three interviews. In the first one, you will meet colleagues in the product team. The second interview will be with our CTO or Product Owner. The third and final interview will be with our CEO, Mikael Blix, and will focus on your values and our company values.
