💨 TL;DR version

You've got experience working with React Native for 1.5+ years commercially or React for 2.5+ years commercially (and it's a bonus if you've dabbled with Python). On top of that, you're familiar with Node.js and general system architecture and want to transition into a leadership role and continue to develop. You want to be part of a fast-growing company that's been recognised as a UK leading company by most major news outlets and built by a diverse and friendly team, Most importantly, you're passionate about the business we're building, and want to support local, independent venues in and around cities across Europe and beyond.

👋 Hey, we’re NAVA

We’re an early-stage startup built around finding the most exciting things going on in a city, from unique and independent venues to underground art exhibitions. We only feature venues and places we think are worth visiting, and when we do feature a venue it’s because we love it. As a result, we’re quickly becoming the authority on where to go and what to do in cities around the world. NAVA is all about telling the story of a city from the perspective of those within it whilst supporting the local businesses that make a community special. On top of that, we help local venues get in touch with nearby customers using machine learning.

We’re a diverse and open-minded team and we’re always on the lookout for people to join our journey. We’ve built some great tech around the business, and we’re now looking for someone that can come and take us to our next stage of development.

🙌 Our Values

* Playful Creativity
* Diversity
* Responsible Technology

💻 The Tech

We want to become the best-in-class when it comes to matching people and places together, which is why we prioritise building scalable technology. The mobile application has been built using a MERN stack, so we’re definitely looking for someone that’s had experience with Mongo, React and Node specifically. On top of this, we’ve built our recommendation engine using python, so it’s an added bonus if you have experience working with data in Python. If you’re looking for an opportunity to get more involved in machine learning and how data is used to make predictions, look no further.
