How we work
We firmly believe that working with native code (Swift and Kotlin) results in the best possible product for our customers. Having said this, we are keeping a close eye on improvements happening in Kotlin Multiplatform. We will still continue writing all of the UI code natively, but we see the potential benefit in sharing some of the business logic between the platforms.
In addition to having the regular iOS and Android app engineering teams, we are split into small autonomous squads. These squads have full autonomy and responsibility for any given feature or architectural improvement. This means the squad will do everything from concepting, prototyping, design, implementation, measuring all the way to fixing any possible bugs.
Most of our shared dependencies use code generation that is built using Node.js and TypeScript. This ensures consistency across the platforms, reduces manual work and gives us type-safety as an added benefit. This includes everything from design tokens to localizations and data models.
We are strongly committed to enabling you to do the best work of your career.
