The Cloud Apps Team (Appnovation)

Remote (or remote)

We are seeking a senior Ionic developer to deliver complex consumer facing healthcare apps in Ionic and on our MBaaS platform. Alongside project delivery, you will maintain our internal reference app that demonstrates the best of Ionic and its value proposition.

You will work as part of the CloudApps Team, who are a passionate group of geeks, coders, designers and strategists with a startup culture working within a large multinational. We run multiple product teams and work closely with our internal clients to develop innovative solutions to the complex business problems this large organisation faces.

The team has been growing exponentially since 2013 and now hails from 11 countries and 10 timezones. We love what we do and get to work with some amazing colleagues. We offer challenging and interesting work at market leading rates. We make careers, as well as awesome products.

  • Job location: 100% remote / home working

  • Acceptable time zone range: UTC -5 to UTC +1

  • Hours: Freelance full time (40hrs/week)

  • Initial duration: 12 months

  • Expected start date: ASAP


The CloudApps team is working on a number of hybrid mobile applications backed by an in-house component library to rapidly develop and deliver solutions for different patient health care related goals. All our hybrid applications are based on our data storage engine which we have branded “Newton”.

You will work closely with product teams during the implementation of the mobile app and will work in a tight feedback loop with the product owners. Additionally, you will be expected to take requirements and make reusable / configurable components that can be used in our component library.

  • Native-level written and verbal English;

  • Confident when working with Product Owners and understanding their objectives;

  • Be a proactive work chaser - not a “specification waiter”;

  • Be an experienced development / engineering lead, able to consult on all levels;

  • Have an expectations setting mindset and be highly communicative;

  • Be able to onboard quickly and work within team disciplines and constraints
