You'll also have built things programmatically and are inclined towards custom solutions rather than using established libraries and off the shelf tools

Just some of the benefits of working with Procreate include...
  • Greenfield development and shaping/directly contributing to the product roadmap
  • An incredible opportunity for career growth
  • Very reasonable working hours
  • Work life balance
