About TrustedHousesitters

TrustedHousesitters is a global marketplace that is disrupting the pet care and travel industries. We connect a community of home and pet owners with sitters to solve a common two-sided problem - pet care and cost-effective travel. Customers join for one annual fee. After that, sits take place as a trust-based, money-free exchange that sees owners enjoy worry-free travel while our sitters enjoy the company of pets and unlock a world of unique accommodation.

We enjoy exceptional customer retention rates driven by the fact that our owners and sitters realise the amazing value and incredible experiences we can facilitate. We have more five-star reviews on Trustpilot than any other pet care or travel company.

We're fully in scale-up mode and have grown to be the only global platform of its kind. In the last few years, we’ve consistently achieved high year-on-year growth, and have remained resilient throughout the COVID-19 crisis. The USA has become our biggest market, followed by UK and Australia.

We've recently made the transition to a remote-first business, however we've retained an HQ in central Brighton which is available for collaborative working and in-person meetups.

We employ software engineers, product managers and designers and data scientists who operate in agile squads. Our marketing team have been focusing on growing our reach in the USA and globally, and our membership services team provide outstanding levels of support to our customers.

We are transforming the pet care and travel landscape. We believe we offer the best solution and our team are united by our commitment to delivering an enriching experience for our customers and having a positive impact on the lives of their pets.

About the Role

As a React Native Engineer, you will be working within one of our cross-functional teams working to deliver a beautiful native app experience to our members. You will be integral in ensuring we build performant, maintainable and quality code that works on both Android and iOS. We work in an iterative way - trying to build minimal but intuitive features - then gather data and iterate. We value continuous improvement through code reviews, retrospectives and providing opportunities for personal growth and learning.


What we're looking for

  • Extensive commercial experience in building performant, accessible, mobile apps; it’s not so much about the number of years and more about the skills and knowledge you have, however, for this role you need to be able to work independently and support other less experienced team members.
  • Commercial experience in React Native.
  • Native app development experience in Android (Java/Kotlin) and iOS (Objective-C/Swift).
  • Confident creating and configuring App build pipelines; including code signing, certificate provisioning, and CI setup.
  • Great communication skills with an open and collaborative mindset both within and outside your team.
  • You must be located in a timezone two hours ahead of or behind the UK.
  • Nice to have
  • Experience working on web apps in React or another modern javascript technology.
  • Backend development experience in Python Django or similar.


Learning and development

Keen and curious? From conferences to courses, you’ll be helped and cheered on to grow personally and professionally. In 2020 we have funded members of our team through Reforge, the world's leading development programme for experienced tech professionals.

House and pet sitting

We actively encourage all of our team members to go Housesitting whenever possible, offering stipends and flexible working opportunities to help make this happen.

Health and wellbeing

We offer the benefit of "Simply Health" to all employees, offering paid cover for a variety of medical appointments and treatments including dental.

Tech and Tools

At TrustedHousesitters, there’s a MacBook Pro for every team member and a home-office budget.

Fun and games

We have regular company and team social events, both online and in-person, which gives our remote team an opportunity to connect and celebrate our successes.
