As an iOS Software Engineer, you’ll be the driving force behind ensuring our iOS Traveller app is a world-class offering. The traveller apps help travellers plan, book and enjoy their dream vacation while the partner apps enable partners to seamlessly handle their vacation rental business. You will ensure that the app performs well, that each code change by all team members leaves the codebase maintainable, that the visual design is meticulously up to spec, that the app size is efficient, and that the platform-specific offerings of iOS are utilised for a truly native experience.
In addition to your technical contributions, you will help define and prioritise new features. You will work to gain a solid understanding of our Travellers’ needs and offer constructive critiques of planned features that might not necessarily meet those needs. You’ll help the team work to complete each release in a timely manner, balancing wisely competing concerns to deliver a great product. In this capacity, you will exhibit a respectful and empathetic tone to everyone, including less experienced engineers on the team, with a genuine concern for helping them grow as iOS engineers. You’ll be willing to learn from everyone, communicate well and strive to be an effective team member.
What You’ll Do:
- You’ll be involved in product feature development, but also a valuable contributor to our growing iOS platform. This underlying platform powers both our Traveller and Partner apps -- shared UI components, a networking layer, and more allows us to achieve maximum velocity, democratise the development of our iOS apps, and move quickly into exciting new technology opportunities such as Instant Apps!
- You’ll be willing to learn from everyone, communicate well and strive to be an effective team member.
Who you are:
You will love this role if you’re looking for an environment:
- That challenges you to think deeply about software architecture
- That encourages you to invest time into your craft and self-improvement, including time for reading books and attending conferences
- Where the best tool for the job is the right tool for the job
- Where UX design isn’t an afterthought
- Where smart risk-taking is encouraged
- Where processes exist only to help the team progress
- Where you have a tangible opportunity to impact people's lives in a positive way
- Where diversity is valued, empathy is offered and individuals’ unique needs are treated with utmost respect
