Senior iOS Developer - LoungeBuddy

As a new addition to the American Express family, our team is working to develop additional ways to become an essential part of Card Members' digital lives by enabling travelers to discover, book, and access airport lounges worldwide. You will have the freedom, ownership, and speed of a startup with the backing, support, and resources of American Express.

We are growing our engineering team and are looking for a Senior iOS Developer that can act as a peer to our existing senior iOS developers. You are someone experienced and extremely knowledgeable that enjoys problem solving and working within a multidisciplined team. You'll be working on our 2 primary iOS products: our public iOS app (over 500k downloads) and our lounge-facing check-in system (deployed in many lounges globally). In addition, you have real experience working at a high-scale startup.

We have some really exciting functionality to explore, especially around how these products interact with external hardware. (iBeacons, magnetic-card readers / NFC, barcode scanning).

We are a small but mighty team that are passionate about working collaboratively, travel, and of course airport lounges.
