Job Description

We are building a brand new social video platform for consumers to enjoy a personalized stream of curated videos that matter to them. Named one of the Best of 2016 by the App Store, our tvOS App was one of the first to bring highly gestural content navigation to the Apple TV. We are launching iOS very soon and are seeking a strong iOS engineer to add to our team who can build and support that experience.

Our Apps are written in Swift 3 and we value highly modular code to maximize our development efficiency. We follow modern design standards and our products have a distinctive visual style that often relies on gesture driven custom animations. An ideal candidate will be very comfortable with UIKit and CoreAnimation.

We are a small team of experienced professionals led by Founders Alan Cannistraro and Charles Migos, who have each designed and built some of the most well known experiences on iOS while working at Apple and Facebook. The team works out of an open office space in San Francisco’s Mission neighborhood. We are excited about where we are going and if you are too, we look forward to meeting you!

Responsibilities:
• Work on both our iOS and tvOS apps
• Develop new, fully-custom views and layouts
• Create compelling, performant animations throughout the apps
• Apply common iOS app architecture and design principles to new and existing code
• Refactor code as necessary to minimize platform-specific implementations

Qualifications:
• Competency with Swift 3.0 or a deep understanding of Objective-C and a willingness to get up to speed with Swift; our apps are entirely written in Swift
• Intimate, working knowledge of UIKit is a must
• Particular knowledge of touch handling, gesture recognizers, and the responder chain; our apps have very complex touch interactions
• Ability to write generic, framework-like components that aren't fragile
• Previous experience working with designers and product managers to deliver a finished product

Nice to Have:
• Familiarity with AV Foundation and other Apple media frameworks
• Experience with Interface Builder and Autolayout; currently, we use both in our apps
• Advanced debugging skills using Instruments to track down and fix issues
