iOS Engineer

HotelTonight makes it remarkably easy to book great hotels at amazing last-minute rates on your mobile device, for tonight, tomorrow and next week.  Our mission is to make people feel more alive by delivering the unexpected and we're looking for an iOS Engineer to help do just that.

As a mobile-only company, HotelTonight is at the cutting edge of technology.  You will get to take advantage of emerging trends in the market to deliver the best experience to our iOS users. You will have the chance to work in a fast-paced environment that puts high value on design and usability to achieve award-winning quality.  As a part of a small, dedicated team, your input will have a large impact on the product that is shipped.  An idea can go from concept to production in mere weeks.  We ship every two weeks!   To accomplish this, you’ll have access to the best tooling and work with a best-of-class team.
