We're simplifying the most challenging parts of mobile app development to allow builders everywhere to create rich, complex apps.
No more starting from scratch from a blank screen. No more lock-in with tools with limited self-hosted databases or restricted access to source code.
We empower people to build their app their way. We do that by giving builders visual tools to streamline screen layout, navigation, and workflows alongside direct access to their app code so they can bring in the custom functions and components that make their apps unique. We give you building blocks, not templates.
We have spent the past few years creating a solid product foundation and getting early feedback from our beta users. We have support from investors who have backed companies like Figma, Twitter, and Twitch. While we still have much to prove, we're poised to grow and are looking for teammates to join us in taking that next leap together.
The initial expectation is this is a 20-40 hour/week, contractor (1099) position (preference for 40 hours/week). Those hours would fall between roughly 9am-6pm Central Time US. There is potential to become a W2 employee if we both feel like there is a good fit over time. We expect the target W2 salary for this role would be between $50k - $75k (depending on experience level and seniority) plus benefits.
Our product, Draftbit, is a low-code mobile app builder built on a React Native/Expo stack. While much of the app development done on Draftbit is visual vs. writing code, our platform is not "drag-and-drop." We provide our users a lot of flexibility in the type and complexity of the apps they build. To allow for the that flexibility, we do give users a lot of freedom in terms of integrating with REST APIs for third-party backends/databases they use, importing packages and inserting their own custom code in order to build features for their apps that are not yet part of the core Draftbit platform.
As a result, many of our user questions are highly technical in nature. This is not a typical customer support position. To successfully unblock our users and guide them to successful outcomes, you won't be relying on a playbook. You will need to need to put your technical skills, curious mind and creative problem solving abilities to good use.
In this role, you will be expected to:
