About the Team

Locker is an Irish venture-backed start-up based out of Galway, Ireland. We are building an industry disrupting mobile application which will change the way sports fans find and consume their favourite content.

What we are looking for

As a junior engineer, you will be guided and mentored by the rest of the team, but that’s not to say your work won’t be important. You will work across multiple facets of Locker’s technical team and a passion for front and backend development is a must. If you’re looking for just another job this isn’t for you. We’re looking for youthful talent to help turn a small Irish start-up in to a global success story. Years of experience isn’t a requirement, but an ability to think big and work hard is essential.

– Work alongside our support team to solve technical issues.
– Ensure cross platform optimization for mobile.
– Write good, clean, maintainable code.

Your Skills:

– Experience with Git.
– Experience with agile development.
– Willingness to learn new languages and good overall engineering skills.
– Experience with Node.js and React Native.
– Excellent JavaScript skills.
– Experience with AWS/Digital Ocean
– You enjoy working with database technologies, in particular SQL and PostgreSQL.
– An eye for design to compliment your frontend development skills. (HTML, CSS, JS)
– Must be a team player with good English communication skills.
– A degree in computer science is nice to have, but not essential.


– Your work will genuinely have a massive impact on our success and growth, and we will recognize that.
– You will play a role in shaping the culture at Locker as an early employee.
– We’re a small talented team. Your decisions will have an impact, and you will have a chance to learn and grow with experienced mentors.
– A competitive base salary.

– Flexible hours.
