Software Engineer, iOS

Engineers at Shift build things that matter; every engineer works on exciting, meaningful projects, and defines our technical and product strategy. We move fast, have fun, and help each other out. Mobile is a critical component of both our core operations as well as consumers’ experience with our product. We aim to reinvent how cars are bought and owned in a world dominated by mobile technology.

Much of what we have on the roadmap for iOS haven't even been started yet, which is exciting if you’re looking to build premium mobile applications from scratch. We make use of high-quality open source libraries whenever possible (like Realm, Alamofire, and SwiftyJSON). We’re looking for engineers with a proven track record of building mobile applications in Objective-C (preferably Swift) with high standards, and a solid design sense. You’ll have direct influence in shaping very early stages of a product that has enormous potential to transform a huge, antiquated market.

  • Work with the team to help set priorities and focus on the right things
  • Improve our tech stack, tools, and processes
  • Participate in discussions and brainstorms to contribute ideas and feedback
  • Help and mentor other team members; collaborate as part of a team

REQUIREMENTS

  • 3+ years of app development experience on  iOS
  • You’re excited about building clean, well-tested code
  • You’re capable of owning projects and working closely with other engineers to build exceptional mobile applications.
  • Demonstrated experience and passion for delivering the best user experience on mobile
