About the iOS team

We’re a small team working on an app with 80mil active monthly users. You’ll work on everything from UI to API communication to database storage. We work together with teams across the company, including design, backend, and product, to make a solid app that our users love and use every day.

We believe in continuously improving our skills and codebase, work/life balance, and doing things right over doing them fast. We’re looking for engineers who share this view and are excited about writing quality code, trying new technologies, and playing well with others.

You will work on challenges including:

  • Making sure our app is a beautiful, delightful reading experience
  • Experimenting with MVC alternatives and pushing UIKit to the limit to implement delightful & elaborate interfaces.
  • Design APIs and systems for synchronizing user data and reading progress across multiple devices seamlessly.
  • Architect and maintain state machines & caches to robustly organize users’ downloaded content and provide them with a perfect offline experience

About you

You’re a strong engineer who enjoys collaborating with different teams. You care about code review as both a chance to share your work and to learn from others. You focus on well-written, elegant solutions, not just the quick fix, and you never skimp on testing. You are always learning and always working to improve your craft.
