    💨 TL;DR version

    You’ve got experience working in Javascript for 3+ years (bonus if you have
    Python experience too). On top of that you’re familiar with system
    architecture, and want to transition into a leadership role in 1-3 years. You
    want to be part of a fast-growing company that’s been recognised as a UK
    leading company, built by a diverse and friendly team. Most importantly,
    you’re passionate about the business that we’re building, and want equity in
    the company, so you benefit even more as the company scales.

    👋 Hey, we’re NAVA

    We’re an early-stage startup built around finding the most exciting things
    going on in a city, from unique and independent venues to underground art
    exhibitions. We only feature venues and places we think are worth visiting,
    and when we do feature a venue it’s because we love it. As a result, we’re
    quickly becoming the authority on where to go and what to do in cities around
    the world. NAVA is all about telling the story of a city from the perspective of
    those within it whilst supporting the local businesses that make a community

    We’re a diverse and open-minded team and we’re always on the lookout for
    people to join our journey. We’ve built some great tech around the business,
    and we’re now looking for someone that can come and take us to our next
    stage of development.

    🙌Our Values

    • Playful Creativity
    • Diversity
    • Responsible Technology

    🖥 The Tech
    We want to become the best-in-class when it comes to matching people and
    places together, which is why we prioritise building scalable technology. The
    mobile application has been built using a MERN stack, so we’re definitely
    looking for someone that’s had experience with Mongo and React
    specifically. On top of this, we’ve built our recommendation engine using
    python, so it’s an added bonus if you have experience working with data in
    Python. If you’re looking for an opportunity to get more involved in machine
    learning and how data is used to make predictions, look no further.

    👤The Role

    As a React Native engineer, you will have the freedom to work across the
    whole code-base, providing significant input on the future development of the
    product. You’ll be working closely with other engineers and have the
    opportunity to grow within the organisation as it scales. Initially it’ll be 80%
    coding, 20% thinking, but this will change as the company grows.
