Mobile Lead Developer

Our client is making breakthroughs in helping people improve their health through nutrition.  Due to growth they are looking for an experienced mobile developer who can take a leadership role in building and growing the mobile product, and ultimately improving health outcomes for users on the platform.

Responsibilities: as you build trust with the team, you will take over technical leadership of the mobile platform and become responsible for:
  • An excellent user experience: working along side their product designer, you will be responsible for ensuring their users have an excellent experience, including a low crash/error rate, a smooth and high-quality UI, and high engagement + retention rates.
  • Agility and rapid iteration: working along their senior mobile developer, you will be responsible for ensuring the mobile platform affords technical agility and rapid iteration.
  • Improving health outcomes: the number one outcome for every individual is improving the health outcomes of users on their platform, and as the mobile lead, you will have a huge amount of influence.
  • Team: working directly with the CTO - 15 years startup experience, including 1 exit, and 2 stable + growing companies), and closely along side Co-founder and CEO, product designer (ex-Shopify), and senior mobile developer. More broadly you would also be working in some capacity 2 other founders (COO, CMO) and the sales, marketing, dietetics, and customer support staff.
  • Product: Their product is a clinically proven nutrition assessment platform: patients use their app to take photos of their meals, from those photos they perform a full nutritional analysis, and deliver that analysis to the patient’s healthcare provider, where it’s used to support treatment for conditions like diabetes, hypertension, and obesity.
  • Why we’re growing the team: they are in the process of expanding beyond “just” a nutritional assessment platform, and developing the ability to support people in their entire health journey - nutrition, exercise, sleep, mental health, and so on. The North Star for this role is improving the health of users on the platform.
Your profile:
  • 7+ years experience with mobile development (React Native/Expo is a plus, but not required), experience with mobile product design, experience working in a leadership capacity.
  • You’re an experienced mobile developer who’s excited by the opportunities and challenges which come along with working in a startup: the wide scope of your role and responsibilities, the direct and immediate impact your work will have, and the constant challenge of identifying the highest-value work in a resource constrained environment.
  • You get invested in, and passionate about, the work you’re doing, and want to direct that energy towards something that will materially improve people’s lives (instead of, say, improving the CTR of online advertisements)
  • You are kind, empathetic, and value transparent communication (or at least you’re doing your best): kindness, empathy, and transparency are deeply held core values of the founders and executive team, and are critical for everyone who joins.
  • Office/remote: we have a downtown Toronto office, and we all come in at least 2 days a week (some folks come in every day).
