On the spectrum of employees to partners, everyone on our team works largely as a partner. Each of us exercises a high degree of independence around what we work on and how we approach it. We choose the hours and locations that work for us; for example, our office is in Palo Alto but we have engineers in Seattle and Vancouver. We can do this because we’re all highly motivated to bring this vision to life, and trust one another to keep moving forward.
Our work includes a rare combination of fun, interesting, and hard technical problems. Our product has the potential to be used by everyone with a mobile phone. Most other projects with the potential for that breadth need huge teams (e.g. self-driving cars or VR), but at Expo we can cover a lot of ground with a small team of high-quality people.
We have a lot of irons in the fire, so we're looking for contributors who can comfortably own and work on multiple projects. By the nature of our product, each of these projects is likely to touch a number of different technologies. People on our team are comfortable jumping from one stack to another and determining the best tool for the task at hand.
Although our core product uses React Native, no experience with React or React Native is needed. We've found that talented people can learn it quickly.
