If you’re passionate about making it easier to build better software, we’re looking forward to receiving your application.

  • Design, implement, and test shared libraries for iOS applications while understanding our products from both technical and business perspectives
  • Break down complex problems into elegant technical solutions that are easy to use and understand

What You Bring to the Table

  • 4+ years of experience building iOS apps in Swift using Foundation, UIKit, and the Swift standard library

  • A strong working knowledge of writing concurrent software that consumes web services
  • A passion for automated testing, with real-world experience building software with high test coverage using dependency injection
  • The ability to clearly communicate technical concepts in written form
  • College degree in Computer Science or a related field of study/equivalent experience

Got These? Even Better:

  • Experience building highly modular, multi-target iOS apps
  • Experience building and maintaining reusable libraries in Swift

  • Experience creating CI/CD pipelines for iOS apps
  • Experience building software for other Apple platforms (tvOS, watchOS, macOS)
  • Fluency with a scripting language (shell, Python, Ruby, etc.)
