Senior Mobile Developer (React Native)
DeansList is hiring its first-ever, dedicated mobile developer. Interested? Read on!
Who is DeansList?
We’re a bootstrapped ed-tech company that creates software that helps schools run better.
Our SaaS platform is used in hundreds of innovative K-12 schools across the country.
We’re proud to partner with many traditionally underserved communities.
We tailor our software to the unique needs of each school.
We’re continually solving hard (aka interesting) problems.
We have the footprint and culture of a startup with the stability and resilience of a large company.
We’re used to working remotely; we’ve been doing it for almost five years.
We love delighting our customers with software and service that go beyond expectations.
We believe in work-life balance--an exhausted dev is not a creative dev.
Still reading? Here’s what to expect if you were to jump into this role:
You will become the proud new owner of our two mobile apps: DeansList for Educators and DeansList for Families.
Oh great, legacy code, right? Nope! We’re giving you the opportunity to rebuild them both from the ground up.
What’s the catch? No catch! React and React Native have evolved a lot of the last four years, and we want to push the reset button so that we can build with the latest and greatest.
We also want to leverage different screen sizes and orientations, which is something we don’t do well right now. Both the current apps are fixed in portrait mode.
Once the mobile apps are rebuilt, we want to start adding lots of awesome new features to make the DeansList experience even better.
This job is for you if:
You want to be part of helping deliver a top-notch education to hundreds of thousands of students.
You’re an ambitious, hard-working person who enjoys tackling big problems.
You’re as passionate about design as you are about writing code.
You're motivated by the challenge of creating user experiences that are elegant, intuitive, and extremely well-coded.
You thrive on constructive feedback from users and co-workers.
You feel comfortable designing for large and small screens alike.
You can work independently but know when to reach out for help.
You love learning and want to be on the cutting edge.
Here’s the profile of who we think would thrive in this role. This isn’t an exact science, so if you don’t quite fit this feel free to try to convince us--we’re open to hearing your pitch.

REST and/or GraphQL API access (even those w/limited documentation)

Senior Software Engineer, Front End
Are you experienced, know coding best practices, and go a bit crazy when you see short cuts being taken? Are you ready to mentor and share but do not want to move into management? Are you passionate about excellent front end software work? Do you desire to create awesome solutions that also make a social impact? If these questions resonate with you; we may have the ideal opportunity!
Possible Finance is a series B Fin-Tech company with a mission to bring financial fairness to underserved communities. Now entering our 4th year we are pleased to share we have seen serious growth, helped hundreds of thousands of customers, and have a stellar rating (42,000 people give us an average of 4.8 stars at the app store). Our team has delivered and is making a difference.
We are on the cusp of some great things. As we look to the future and consider the goals we'd like to achieve we'd like to add some senior software engineering talent to our front-end team. You will be helping with the architecture, designing, implementing, and maintaining customer-facing and internal user experiences. The work is primarily for mobile devices, yet we are moving more and more into additional web services.
Even with all of our success, we are still building best practices and need senior people with a "founders mentality". You understand that your mornings will be collaborating with the PMs, Designers, and executives to architect and design new solutions for our customers. And in the afternoons working with other engineers on merge requests, code reviews, and maintaining code excellence. And yes, you'll get to code!
This role will require deep software experience, most likely 10 or more years. The successful candidate will have shipped a successful product, but not only shipped, have maintained, iterated, and helped the product grow. You will have spoken with the customer, shadowed customer support, and improved on a solution you thought was already awesome.
We need a person ready to take responsibility and own their work and take pride in building an outstanding front end experience. One capable of working in an agile development environment. And able to constructively challenge the way we build products and think about solutions.
This role is not a manager role, though you will lead by example, and help mentor, because you want the best. You are interested because you want to build a great company and you know that growth, learning, and challenges will come as build on top of each success.
To qualify for the role we feel you will need to demonstrate deep computer science knowledge and best practices; and that you can develop in Java Script in a React Native framework for both the iOS native and Android environments.
Possible has moved to be fully distributed. We sync on Pacific Time Zone hours and are open to people who resonate with the above and that want to create financial freedom for underserved communities. This role is open to people across North and South America. We offer a competitive salary, stock, and benefits. If this is you; join us!
