Lead iOS Developer


Our Shopify mobile teams are working with world-class UX, design, and engineering teams to build and define the future of commerce. We are looking for iOS leaders who are passionate about iOS and mobile at large. If you care about the best user experience, low crash counts and responsive applications, you’re set. We would love for you to join us to push boundaries as we craft the best physical retail experience for merchants and their customers, the best SDKs for developers, and the best overall mobile experience for our merchants.  

You'll need to have:

  • iOS enthusiasm!
  • Experienced leading and growing people (tell us a bit about this in your application)
  • Significant knowledge of Cocoa design patterns
  • Significant Objective C experience
  • Knowledge of Swift
  • Experienced interfacing with APIs

It’d be great if you have experience with:

  • Knowledge of Android development
  • Experience building out an SDK (see our iOS and Android Buy SDKs)
  • Experience shipping an app, hopefully it is currently available in the app store (send along a link, please)

As an iOS Lead at Shopify you will own technical projects and be responsible for helping to grow other developers - a mix of people leadership, and technical leadership. If leading the mobile team at Shopify sounds like a place where you can make an impact, apply below.
