Mobile Dev for Education App at Established Company

This is an opportunity to be on the ground floor of building the next big language learning site and mobile app. Parrot helps people learn through immersive first-person video and speech recognition.

Parrot is a new project started by the same company behind FluentU, a popular language learning app and website. We’re a profitable, stable company (started in 2011) with a long-term focus – proudly self-funded. Many people know us through our blog, which is visited millions of times every month.

We offer you:

  • the reliability of an established company
  • the calmness and low drama environment of a 100% distributed team
  • the dynamism and excitement of working on a startup

In this role, you will:

  • work on the entire codebase for the mobile app, which is still in the early stages.
  • manage the backend/DevOps
  • work closely with other members of the Parrot product team (the founder of FluentU, product manager, designers, developers. Currently there is one developer on the team.)

How we work:

  • We’re a 100% distributed/remote team and always have been.
  • Most of our communication is text-based (mostly Asana) and we have a low-stress environment.
  • We also have a flat, collaborative environment.
  • We make decisions based on logic/reason. We prioritize communicating clearly.

We’re looking for someone who:

  • is fluent in English
  • has strong front-end and back-end skills with React Native and Node.js
  • has experience with Strapi (a big plus)
  • knowledge of Devops/AWS (Video on demand hosting) deployment (also a big plus)
  • has experience building great mobile apps
  • writes clean, high-quality, well-documented code
  • can work 30+ hours per week on a regular basis
  • is interested in a long term, dedicated collaboration
  • can balance quality with speed
  • no agencies please

If you’re interested, please reply with:

  • work samples (including code samples)
  • why you’re interested in this particular job
  • your availability

Please note that this initial job is a fully paid 10 hour trial to see if there’s a mutual fit. Details about the 10 hour trial will be provided later.
