React Native App Developer – Remote

KeyNest, one of the leading partners of Airbnb worldwide, is looking for an ambitious React Native developer to join its growing team as a permanent employee working remotely.

About the company

With headquarters in London and offices in Paris and India, KeyNest is a global network of 1,800 shops used by Airbnb hosts to securely store keys, so that their Airbnb guests can pick them up whenever is convenient for them. More than 500,000 guests are checked-in using KeyNest every year. KeyNest also provides online ID verification services and key tracking software solutions for the property industry.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a talented developer to join one of the fastest growing start-ups in Europe. Every day presents new challenges and opportunities for growth by working with a team of integration specialists, achievers, visionaries and problem solvers.

We’re lucky to work alongside some of the smartest people in our industry. It doesn’t really matter where you are, you’ll find our benefits, support, and culture to succeed and progress.

Why we need you

As the industry increasingly relies on KeyNest, our customers expect all of our web functionality to also be available in an app. Our biggest challenge is to integrate additional features without reducing the ease of use that our customers love.

With a genuine passion for high quality work, attention to detail and readiness to own your own projects, you will be looking for a new and exciting challenge which allows you to use your experience to drive change and maintain the high standards of our organisation.
