The Job

In 2020, following an amazing year of growth and another successful round of fundraising lead by leAD Sports, Buzzbike will be significantly expanding the number of bikes including the launch of its first E bike. To support this growth Buzzbike needs to build a scalable technology solution that becomes the hub of the business, supporting every aspect of the service from asset management, delivery, customer profile, payments, maintenance, customer support, member bike usage data (personal and rewards) and key business analytics. In parallel the customer website, mobile app and gamification will continue to evolve to allow members to better self-serve, offer richer data, more engaging gamification and ultimately the easiest and most rewarding way to ride a bike in the city. 

We are looking for a Senior Frontend/React Native Engineer to be one of the first team members in Buzzbike’s first international office based in Vietnam. In this role you will be responsible for the ongoing development and evolution of the website, rebuilding mobile and gamification platform and partnering with the backend engineer on the control panel. 

Your role will include but not limited to: 

  • Turning wireframes into reality for web and mobile projects.
  • Architecting and building our frontend web and mobile project structures.
  • Working with the founders and backend engineers to define and build the next generation of our operational and consumer-facing experiences.
  • Writing clean, tractable code with automated unit and functional testing. 
  • Releasing and updating mobile applications on the App Store and Google Play store.
  • Re-working our existing website, operations dashboards and mobile applications to deliver the new features our users demand.
  • Working on analytics and health related data projects to improve the Buzzbike experience for our users.
