example – you’ll be motivated to get it working perfectly for you, too! Our software is used by ocean
explorers around the world, including scientists, citizen scientists, and people whose livelihoods depend
on the sea. Current and future generations.

Duties and Responsibilities

You'll be responsible for all aspects of the mobile app and need to connect to the backend APIs and endpoints.

If you are organized, like to plan before you code, are driven, curious, and resourceful; you can easily
pick-up a stack, improve efficiency and stability, and quickly move through build, measure, learn cycle;
love designing and building mobile applications, web applications, and dashboards that the public will
