We’re working with a company based in LA that builds software for cannabis dispensaries. They have an iOS app, a tvOS app and a web frontend. They’re looking for a react native developer who can help them iterate on their tvOS app and iOS app. They’d be open to someone less expensive for 40 hours / week or someone with more experience for as little as 20 hours / week.

You’d be working alongside the CTO and one other developer. If you’re comfortable with rails and/or react they could use some help with their web app too.
