About the role

Amiqus provides thousands of people every month with the means to digitally verify their identity and documentation using a secure and validated platform. Our next focus will be on enabling those people to reuse these checks without having to repeat them in the future. We’re on a steep growth trajectory, with no intent of slowing down.

We’re looking for a Mobile Application Engineer to work on an exciting project with guidance and mentorship from our Lead Mobile Engineer, Product and Engineering Managers.

The successful candidate will have an incredible opportunity and autonomy to redesign and rebuild our existing mobile application and take it to the next level. You’ll be collaborating with our Senior Mobile Engineer and other engineers to design and specify the technical requirements for the project, work on the project and finally ship the app to our target audience. 

Alongside this, we’ll look to you for; 

  • Together with the Mobile development team, develop a brand-new mobile application, that directly aligns with and contributes to our product strategy

In  addition, we’re looking for someone  with:

  • The ability to participate in deep technical discussions within a small team of engineers to collaboratively architect a new green-field application
  • Good communication skills; the most important aspect of collaborative, remote working is being able to proactively communicate to different roles in the organisation
  • Prior experience shipping mobile applications through the Google Play Store and iOS App Store would be an advantage
  • Continuous desire to improve your knowledge of work areas, embrace the agile framework and aim to reach full agility with continuous integration, delivery and deployment
  • Possess a diverse and adaptable mindset, with a good understanding of scale-up or start-up working environments.

Our technology:

  • Our platform is built using VueJS, PHP, MySQL, Redis and OpenSearch
  • We’re hosted on a well-architected AWS infrastructure
  • Our existing app uses ReactNative and is shipped on iOS and Android
