React Native Developer

React Native Developer

Edinburgh | £40,000 - £50,000 | Permanent

Published: 04.04.24 Ref: BBBH46698_1712240140

A well-established tech company is looking for a React Native Developer to join their team. The company have been going for 20 years (they're really stable but still have a startup kind of feel and continue to innovate). They work with an impressive range of customers - real household names - and their products deliver real value.

They're around 40 people in total, roughly half are on the Engineering side and the team are divided into smaller teams who have ownership of specific products.

They look after their staff really well - there's lots of autonomy and you won't be micromanaged. They really empower people to manage their own work and set their own deadlines.

The company's mobile app is crucial to the business. It's a hybrid app for Android and iOS, which involves a native container and a web view. The native code includes a number of different features such as background GPS Tracking, camera capture and more.

Their app is written in JavaScript, TypeScript and React Native, so they need someone that is skilled within React Native, as they'd expect you to come in and hit the ground running. They are very big on learning, so you'd have the opportunity to upskill in other areas if you wanted to.

There's lots of perks (granted, some are tied to the office like snack cupboards and really good coffee) but there's also mentoring schemes and a real focus on career development (plus generous annual budget for professional development). They are also a really sociable bunch and have regular events.

They have a swish office in Edinburgh (near the Gyle) and in an ideal world, they'll get people into the office on a weekly basis but they are happy to consider people in the Central Belt that are a bit further away than this and with that, you'd be able to work mostly remote. Saying that, within your notice period, they'd expect you to be in the office 2-3 times per week, so you can get up to speed with their systems and processes a lot quicker. They are really flexible on working hours (they get that some folks are night owls and some are early birds!) and you can design your work around your life. They will also provide you with great kit (your choice). Salary-wise, they can pay up to £50,000 for the role.

If you are an experienced React Native Developer then please apply and/or get in touch with Jack Steven at Cathcart Technology.

Our clients


She was friendly, communicative and informative, talked me through the process and gave me good advice at every stage.

Software Engineer – Manchester

THE BEST test recruiter I’ve had the pleasure of working with, from start to finish. She provided me with training resources and is an organiser and participant in testing events. She really has taken the time to fully understand the testing principles.

Test Analyst – Aberdeen

He is the most honest, thorough and experienced recruitment consultant I have ever dealt with. If he can’t help you, he’ll tell you rather than spinning a yarn and putting you forward for jobs that aren’t suitable.

Technical Author – Edinburgh

A friend looking after me, that’s how I felt. His friendly character made the whole process way easier and enjoyable, he also managed to get me one of the most interesting work opportunities. I’m really glad our paths have crossed.

Software Engineer - Edinburgh

I have had dealings with the majority of recruitment agencies in this country and beyond. He really stands out from the crowd and the IT industry would benefit from more people like him.

Software Developer – Glasgow

Equal parts friendly and professional, never once coming across as simply going through the motions and made the whole thing as painless as possible for all parties

Software Developer – Glasgow

It was a breath of fresh air – She is professional and approachable and will be there to help you every step of the way. Other recruiters give you the hard sell and the ‘best friend routine’ to get you on board and then just leave you guessing, but not here… She’s the real deal

Solutions Architect – Glasgow

Absolutely fantastic throughout my interview process, and I cannot recommend him highly enough! First of all, he is an absolutely brilliant communicator and extremely reliable. On top of all of his brilliant recruitment skills, it was amazing to see how genuinely excited he was for me when I received my offer. This truly conveyed to me how much he cares about his clients.

Software Engineer – Edinburgh

Compared to other recruiters I have worked with she seemed genuinely interested in helping me with my job search rather than just fulfilling quotas.

Software Developer – Lincoln

He stood out in a world of poorly informed, unreliable and frankly annoying recruiters as a breath of fresh air.

Data Scientist – Manchester

I’ve never written a recommendation for a recruiter before, so it must show how impressed I am!

Software Developer – Northampton

I can say with total sincerity I’ve never dealt with a more professional, knowledgeable and personable recruitment firm in fifteen years of contracting. They helped my wife and I relocate to Edinburgh with our five month old son and it’s in no small part to their tips and recommendations that we’ve settled in so quickly.

Transformation Consultant – Leeds

He goes out of his way to ensure you are prepared for your interview and I particularly appreciated his professional no nonsense approach to working with me to find a new position.

Infrastructure Architect – Glasgow

Never have a I met a recruiter like him, who embeds himself in the community so thoroughly in a way that could only be genuine. From our conversations, he has shown an understanding of the industry I would expect from a local CTO.

MI Analyst – Bolton

She even was able to help get a firmer offer as I was offered two roles on the same day. I felt she went over and above to get the best offer she could for me without selling myself short.

QA Engineer – Glasgow
