iOS Software Engineer

    • San Francisco, CA
At Seesaw, our mission is to create an environment where students can be their best. Our iOS apps deliver on that mission by improving the learning experience in hundreds of thousands of classrooms worldwide. Students use the app to document their learning with photos, videos, and countless creative tools. Family members are notified instantly when their child creates new work. And teachers get all the tools they need to set up classroom activities, organize student work, and communicate with everyone involved in the learning process.

We’re hiring experienced iOS engineers to build exciting new features, influence our technical roadmap, and support the rapidly growing community of students, teachers, and family members who love Seesaw (1 in 2 schools in the US already use our products!). Every engineer on our small team has an opportunity to take ownership of projects from concept to production — from a whiteboard to a classroom. The ideal candidate will have several years of experience building popular, world-class iOS apps.

Key Responsibilities

  • Deliver new features in our award-winning classroom and family apps.
  • Be involved in the design, development, testing, and deployment of every project you take on.
  • Learn our backend stack and write endpoints in Python to support frontend features.
  • Work with the team to build a strong technical roadmap and engineering culture.

  • 3+ years of work experience developing native mobile apps.
  • Strong knowledge of iOS SDKs and best practices.
  • Understanding and appreciation for good mobile UI/UX design practices.
  • Experience working with RESTful APIs.
  • Some knowledge of Python and backend technologies preferred.
  • BS in Computer Science or a related technical field preferred.
