Senior IOS Engineer

Weight Watchers is an international leader in healthy lifestyle change. At Weight Watchers our mission is “inspire and guide the healthier choices that transform lives.” We are transforming our half-century old company by leveraging technology and leading the way in the health and wellness arena with a new emphasis on analytics, mobility and digital solutions to help our members reach their goals. This includes integrating with Fitbit, iOS Health, among others, as well as the associated tools, information and synchronization needed for our members.


If you've got great iOS chops and want to see your work appreciated by millions of users, the WW Mobile team is the place for you. We're not your mother's Weight Watchers! We're an agile tech startup within the organization. And we ship every 2 weeks, so there's always something exciting and challenging to work on.

Working for WW means you get to write code that makes a huge impact on people's lives. You can be a force for good.

We strive to be early adopters of the latest iOS features, from Swift to Apple Watch. We also love using tools like Cocoapods, fastlane, and CircleCI to help us write modular code and quickly deliver apps to beta testers and the App Store. Maybe there's a cool new framework or tool you've been dying to try out. Or maybe you want to write your own. Weight Watchers is the place to do it.


  • Love learning about the latest tools and technologies. (Your idea of a lazy Sunday afternoon is cracking open "The Swift Programming Language.")
  • Write clean, well-architected, self-documenting code
  • Want to learn from other engineers and share you knowledge with the team
  • Seek out challenges that make you grow — as a person, and as a software developer
  • Are a self-starter and a team player
  • Participate in code reviews and our biannual hackathons
  • Bring a critical mind to identifying and solving issues and bugs
  • Aren't afraid to share your ideas and raise red flags when appropriate
  • Want to evangelize the WW Mobile team via open source, tech meetups, and conferences
  • Don't mind taking occasional trips to visit the San Francisco office!
You should have:
  • 6+ years professional iOS development experience
  • Excellent command of Swift and the iOS SDKs
  • Several published applications in the App Store
  • Strong track record of shipping products
  • Solid background writing modular, object-oriented code
  • Excellent problem-solving and debugging skills
  • Experience writing unit and automation tests with XCTest
