React Native Engineer

At Picnic, we care about your health and wellbeing. As such, we currently support online interviews and remote onboarding (learn more about the process here).

At Picnic, we use native and React Native alongside each other to provide our customers with a grocery delivery service that’s affordable, reliable, and sustainable. Now we’re looking for a React Native developer who’s excited to create exceptional products that really do make a difference to our customers—and to the online grocery shopping landscape!

Why use React Native? To put it simply, using cross-platform technologies enables us to deliver more value to our customers, so it’s a no-brainer for us. What we like about React Native is that it’s an opt-out technology: it provides a useful escape hatch to native. However, we only use React Native where it makes sense; the user experience is our top priority. And don’t worry, we love type-safety so all our React Native code is written in TypeScript.

What you'll do

You’ll shape the strategy for integrating React Native components in our native apps, as well as define conventions and infrastructure around React (Native) development. Through close collaboration with our designers and product owners, you’ll create specifications for new features. You’ll build out our backend-driven UI framework (developed in React Native) and transition existing functionalities from native to React Native whenever possible. With your solid communication skills, you’ll train our amazing team of native engineers.

What do you have?

  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or equivalent
  • 2+ years of full-time experience in shipping high-traffic React Native apps
  • Experience with SCM, preferably Git
  • A problem-solving mindset
  • The confidence to transform high-level business requirements into a technical plan
  • Fluency in English (Dutch not required)
  • For bonus points: Open source contributions to the React Native framework

Tech we use

  • TypeScript and RxJS
  • React Native
  • CodePush
  • Redux
  • Styled Components
  • Jest, Storybook
