We’re looking for an experienced React Native developer to take ownership, design and scale our IOS and Android developments. We are a company fresh out of the ZincVC accelerator, funded and rapidly prototyping. This project is pushing the boundaries of voice interfaces, NLP and mobile UX. The stack is built using microservice architecture with independant datastores meaning we have Python, Ruby (Rails and Sinatra), Mongodb, Postgres and third party services running our backend and built in a way to make frontend consumption of each service clean and easy.
First and foremost we are purpose driven. ZincVC set us the mission of improving the mental and emotional health of 650 million women.

If you really want to help a huge amount of people with your skill set, then you’re aligned with our team.

Our goal is to transition you into a Lead Frontend Engineer role at Leika
You will have the freedom to work on your own projects during work hours

The most important thing to us is your mental, emotional and physical health. This means different things to different people.

Sex is often an uncomfortable topic. One that carries with it — regardless of gender — a wealth of shame, stigma, and taboo. We’ve been on a mission to better understand how we can use emerging technologies to improve pleasure and sexual well-being. In doing so, we’ve found ourselves in an industry ripe with innovation, underserved consumers, and a growing emphasis on sexual self-care. Enter, Leika, a virtual guide and tool for sexual self-care. Leika harnesses the power of spoken conversation, empowering women to better understand and communicate what brings them sexual pleasure. We are a team of 3 who are coming from a London based Accelerator called ZincVC. We have just raised a large early stage funding round from Venture Capital and Angel investors, launched out our first Beta to test our assumptions and are now on the hunt for skilled team members to join as first, second and third hires.
