Bokio is already helping 80,000 people in Sweden and UK to run their companies. Currently this is mostly done on the web. Now we are looking to improve the experience by improving our Android and iOS apps.
Why is this job important?
While we already provide a good experience on the web there simply is no way to make certain parts as wonderful as a well crafted mobile app can be. For our users it's important that it's very easy to get receipts and other data into Bokio, if that is a hassle they are less likely to do it. This is why the mobile app is important for us, it can make these quick interactions much faster and more enjoyable than we can with the web. That way they get their data in so that we can help them never miss a thing. The mobile app is also a great way for us to remind them about important dates and events in their company, allowing the user to feel much more calm about not missing anything important.
What will you do?
As a mobile app developer you will be creating an awesome on-the-go experience for our users. At least initially the focus will be on supporting use cases that users want to do when they are away from the computer.

- Make it possible to upload receipts to Bokio
- Allow uploading later if your connection is bad
- Add extra pages to a receipt
- Add description and categories for receipts so that it's easier to record them in a later stage.
- Unify our expense and receipt upload flows so that you can use the mobile app for expenses too.
