Mobile Engineer 

DrayNow (Conshohocken, PA) is seeking a local Mobile Engineer to help our team inject technology into the tech-barren freight industry, automating complex processes, helping truck drivers find work, and adding previously-impossible efficiencies that have real green environmental impact. We’re a startup fresh into a large series-A funding round, with an already-successful platform seeing heavy use in the wild. We need your help to make it even better, adding features that our fax-machine-and-email-driven customers view as nothing short of magical. 

About Us  

We’re a small-but-growing team based out of Conshohocken, PA across from Spring Mill Station. We’re a supportive bunch that believes strongly in open source, preventing silos, great documentation and test coverage, pair programming, code review, and high communication. As a company we firmly believe that family comes first, with everyone from our leadership on down exercising flexible hours to give school events, little league games, and family outings priority with no questions asked. We’re deeply invested in our work and seek to work with folks just as self-driven and passionate about our craft as we are.  

Our tech stack includes a range of AWS services, Docker, Serverless, Node.js, and databases including Elasticsearch and PostgreSQL on the backend. On the front, we’re React + Semantic UI + MobX on the web side. Our existing mobile app is Android-only and Kotlin-based, but we’re looking to completely replace this with a cross-device technology, and we’d love your help!  

Who We’re Looking For 

Our Mobile Engineer should: 

  • have high familiarity with a cross-device mobile platform. Device-native familiarity is a huge plus. 

  • be able to communicate with our non-technical users effectively 

  • be comfortable bootstrapping a new mobile project from scratch, and guiding the rest of the team on how to organize and contribute to it 

  • be interested in expand their area of expertise across the full stack over time 

  • have little ego when collaborating with the team about how to solve problems 

  • be self-motivated to learn about the latest advancements in our technology space 

Your responsibilities include: 

  • Helping the engineering team decide on the technologies to power our next-generation mobile application 

  • Integrate packages from third-party vendors that give our mobile app advanced capabilities 

  • Work alongside the CTO and other engineering staff on platform enhancements and new product offerings 

  • Write tests and documentation for all platform additions 

  • Review pull requests of other team members across our full tech stack 

  • Work directly with users to ensure their needs are met  

Interested? Here’s what we offer: 

  • Competitive salary based on knowledge and experience 

  • Incredible health insurance 

  • Dental insurance 

  • Flexible hours and weekly work-from-home days 

  • A high-positivity environment that doesn’t sugarcoat problems 

  • A crazy supportive team that celebrates each other’s wins and works together through losses (as infrequent as they may be ;-) )  

Sound amazing? 

Let’s talk! Introduce yourself to our CTO, Tom Shawver, at tshawver@draynow.com. For extra points, include a resume or LinkedIn profile along with anything else you’d like to share, like a GitHub account or your last big project.
