# The ideal candidate

- You enjoy working and shipping independently

- You've built and deployed something on the web or mobile (send us a link?)

- You are comfortable developing React Native code for both Android and iOS (you have your own Mac)

- You care about the product as well as the code

- You are curious and take initiative to explore new things

- You have excellent verbal and written communication skills

- If you don't have any "formal" professional experience working as a software engineer, you've worked on a product (or built a side project) that had users


# Responsibilities

- Write, review, deploy, and maintain code in mostly React Native

- Document the systems you help build, monitor, and maintain

- Coordinate with the rest of the team on prioritising feature requests and bugs

- Evaluate and recommend solutions to guide team decision making

- Debug production issues and implement fixes for them


# You Might Work On

- New features in the Bearable app

- Performance improvements to make Bearable faster

- Automating our internal processes (for instance related to growth hacking)

- A new product: we're currently exploring Bearable Pro, a variant of Berable for medical researchers and clinicians to more easily interact with their patients.

- Something completely different! As an early stage company, we tend to be pretty "all hands on deck" when something comes up that we need to get done


# Benefits

- This is a fully remote, full time position. You can choose your own hours as long as your time zone is close to London's.

- Sustainable and healthy working matters to us. We care about building delightful products for our customers, not hitting arbitrary daily hour counts.

- If you're outside of the UK, this position will be permanent and full time in spirit, but a contract role on paper. The reason for this is that employment outside of the UK comes with significant challenges for a small company like ours. In that case, this means that this role doesn't include certain benefits like a retirement plan/pension.


# About us

We are a fairly early stage company with plenty of opportunity for you to make a huge impact! Currently there are two of us working on Bearable full time:

- James (who is in charge of marketing, finance, business development)

- Kamil (in charge of technology, engineering)

We're a profitable, bootstrapped company (no external investment).

Background on Bearable:

- James designed Bearable in 2018/2019 to help him maintain mental clarity, and to more easily understand the effect that various daily factors and events have on his wellbeing.

- It turned out that others wanted Bearable too, as thousands of people expressed interest in early access. James partnered with Kamil to turn this concept into reality.

- Since we launched Bearable in March 2020, nearly 100,000 people have used the app, with thousands becoming premium subscribers.

- We are now well suited for growth and for making Bearable the most versatile and intelligent health tracker in the world.


# Our tech stack

- Firebase (Auth, Firestore)
