Job Description:

The Instaclustr Consulting team is seeking a mid to senior level mobile app developer to assist our clients with software solutions that solve existing problems, enable new business objectives, and ensure security, performance, and scalability, while not sacrificing time to deployment.

Your day-to-day will be working within a GitHub based workflow, coordinating via Slack, operating against a GCP. What you bring to the team is as important as the technologies involved; bringing what you learn and know to support the continual improvement of your teammates is critical for our success with clients.

Note: Candidates should be able to overlap working hours with US Eastern Time Zone.


In a perfect world, you'd check all the boxes, but obviously we don't live in a perfect world (Hello 2021!). If you have most of the skills and are confident you can pick it up, we're willing to take a look.
