Freeplay is the future of fitness. We're building a platform that makes it super easy to exercise as groups of friends. Today, if you want to organize a pickup game of soccer, it will take you 60-90 minutes to find a group of people, find a spot, and find a time. With Freeplay, it can be done in 30 seconds.
You love to build. When you're not at your job, you're probably tinkering on some contraption in the basement or figuring out how to take apart . You get a thrill from figuring out a clever way to solve a problem. You are a good developer with strong programming fundamentals and you really take pride in knowing the ins and outs of the programming languages and libraries you are working on. You are a product-focused Engineer that cares about details and—this is obvious—you take pride in your work.
If this sounds like you, and you've been working in React for more than a few years, you should apply. We strongly encourage and are proponents of diversity.
Why should I be excited to work here?
First, it’s fun. Not in the “everyone pretend to have fun, we’re a startup, where are the Nerf guns?” way, either. It’s fun to work at Freeplay because we’re a happy team of people who love to design and build great products. It’s not just that we have a great organizational structure in which everyone is really empowered to act; it’s also that we hire for fit and bring in folks only if we’re confident in their integrity, capability, and drive.
No one will watch over your shoulder, and you won't have to spend time watching over anyone else's either. We're a talented team of doers.
Autonomy, creativity, thoughtfulness, trust: if you care about those things, you'll be happy here. And more importantly, we'd be honored to hire you.
You'll be working directly with the CTO and CEO to build engaging customer-facing features. Extensive experience in React is a must - enough that you can resolve features and bugs with little to no input. Most of your time will be spent building in React Native.
You should have experience or a basic knowledge of the following: React, Redux (or similar state management implementations), React Context, React Hooks, Immutable.js, React Native, Webpack/Babel,
Full-stack experience is a plus. We use Node.js and MySQL on the backend.
