Summary

What we do

JourneyApps is a high-productivity platform to build and run industrial-grade custom apps, that work responsively across mobile devices, computers and web browsers. What makes the platform unique is that it's code-centric, yet ultra high-productivity: Developers have the full power of code, yet it takes 90% less time to build custom apps on JourneyApps compared to traditional development. JourneyApps also solves the difficult challenges of building apps for mission-critical industrial work processes, such as relational offline data sync. Companies in industries such as Oil & Gas, Mining & Metals, Chemicals and High-Tech Manufacturing use JourneyApps to create and run powerful business applications.

Why work for us

JourneyApps is scaling rapidly, with large global customers building and running apps on our platform. Some of the largest companies in the world that form the backbone of the global economy rely on JourneyApps for core parts of their business operations.

We are headquartered in the United States with an engineering hub in South Africa. We are always looking for talented people to join our team who share our passion for our vision.

Our culture

Think of the cohesive, agile and adaptable JourneyApps team as a flock of birds. We fly to great heights together without a lot of formal coordination, because our core values help us cooperate, move fast and adapt fast — even if we are a bunch of teams a scattered across two continents.

The core values that guide the collective behavior of the JourneyApps flock are:

Cooperation = unite + win:
Work together, win together. We take collective ownership of our mission; there’s no “them” — just “us”.

Autonomy = trust + own:
We are a group of exceptional people and we trust every member of our team to be excellent at their job, to do the right thing, and to do what’s best for our team — wherever, whenever.

Growth = learn + communicate:
The better we communicate, the more we can learn from each other. We spread new ideas, give feedback, and provide all the facts so we can learn and grow together.

Ambition = dream + excel:
We go above and beyond to produce excellent work and get real results. We care deeply about where the company is going, give urgency to all the tasks at had, and get our hands dirty. We try new things, make mistakes, and learn — fast.

Encouragement = help + care:
We go the extra mile for every member of the JourneyApps community — both customers and team members — and encourage others to do so too. We are always approachable, helpful, and supportive.

Social = fun + friendly:
We have strong social cohesion, through friendly, fun and funny team members. We laugh together, we keep things light, and we always see the bright side.

Our Engineering Processes

We score 11/12 on the Joel Test.

Our Hiring Process

Our hiring process consists of four steps to determine whether you are a good fit for JourneyApps, and whether we are a good fit for you:

1) We do a 20-minute phone screening to validate what you're looking for matches what we need.
2) We then do a 60-minute phone interview discussing non-domain specific topics where we test your macro-skills covering topics such as system design, approaches to debugging, etc.
3) Then there is a take-home micro-skills coding challenge whereby you need to build a very basic app on the JourneyApps platform (typically does not take candidates more than 3 days if they have JavaScript experience).
4) An in-person interview with your prospective team leader in our office so that you can meet the team you'll be working with on a daily basis.
