iOS & Back-end developer

at Embargo Lifestyle in London

(₤40000 - ₤60000 per year)

We are London based start-up that provides a beacon based loyalty and rewards program for the hospitality industry to connect and interact with customers. We have developed the Android prototypes and backend in-house, while the iOS development has been outsourced. Since then our company has garnered a lot of interest and with first round funding interest secured, we aim to hire more people into our team to build the company with us.

We're seeking primarily an iOS developer, but it would be a major bonus if you have experience in developing back-ends. Currently the back-end we developed is written in Python using Flask and deployed via Tornado. If you know what that means and if you have experience with that, that would be hugely helpful, though we're not set on using Python.

We will pay a competitive salary and you would of course be eligible for stock options. We're looking to hire in London in close collaboration with the CTO whom you'd have regular calls/meetings with.

We require the following:
• Flawless English
• BS/MS in Computer Science or related subject
• Proven working experience in software development
• Solid understanding of the full mobile development life cycle
• Understanding of Apple’s design principles and interface guidelines
• Experience with offline storage, threading, and performance tuning. If you don't like caching, we don't like you.
• Familiarity with RESTful APIs to connect iOS applications to back-end services
• In depth familiarity with cloud messages APIs (right now we use Firebase)
• Knowledge of other web technologies and UI/UX standards
• Having published at least one app in the Apple app store
• Out-of-the-box thinking. We want someone who can find solutions and goes beyond what normal developers do. Your mantra should be: If there is a will, there is a way.
• Ideally you also have experience with back-end programming in a high performance environment

• Work together with the designers and build our application for the iOS platform, which you will continuously improve over time
• Ideally create a high performance server backend that can cater to 1000+ clients at once (e.g. with automated AWS deployment on high loads, etc)
• Ensure the performance, quality, and responsiveness of app and server
• Collaborate with our team to define, design, and ship new features
• Identify and correct bottlenecks and fix bugs
• Help maintain code quality, organization, and automatization

We need to see a portfolio. We prefer quality over quantity. Show us your best stuff!

We also want to stress that we see this as a long-term commitment and that we are not interested in one-off app development. We want to make sure that you become an integral part of our team and that all our goals are aligned.

Get the chance to join an early stage start up consisting of a diverse and highly ambitioned team disrupting an industry with high entry barriers.
