Welcome to the Mobile App Development team at Black Swan Data…..

We are a diverse team speaking fluent English, Greek, Croatian, Italian,  Spanish and Bulgarian, Java, Objective C, Swift, Node JS, PHP, Python, Javascript, HTML, CSS,  C/C++ and C#.  

Variety is the spice of life here - one day you can be working on a startup project and the next on a project with over 1.1 million active monthly users (that is 99.9% crash free – not that we like to boast!). But if that’s not how you work, we are happy for you to take ownership of a project too! We work in an agency but it’s not all working at top speed, we also work smart! We use GIT flow, we love Jenkins and nothing is getting into a build without a pull request!  

Yes, we are geeks and we like a chat about coding, but we also enjoy the gym, video games, movies, tv series / boxsets and a beer on a Friday night…
