iOS Engineer

Come build the community around you!

We created Jodel to let you instantly connect, share, and engage with the community around you. We’ve built thriving local communities across Europe and continue to expand globally. With more than 6 million posts per day, we are thrilled to have one of the industry’s highest retention rates. We’ve attracted respected and well-known investors such as Christophe Maire, Adam d’Angelo, and the Floodgate Fund, and even been the subject of several academic papers.

We’re now growing our Engineering team around a culture of sustainability and empowerment. We’re dealing with dynamics such as being local and signup-lean, which give us new problems to solve, and we’re literally breaking new ground in the Social Network space. Data-driven by default, with a bias for quality and code sustainability, and fostering a solid DevOps and Automated Testing culture, Jodel’s Engineering team is the place to be if you’re looking for unique challenges!

What attitude are we looking for?

  • You’re naturally motivated and proud of doing great work;
  • Numbers and data are the best way to drive your decisions;
  • You have a strong personality, sense of ownership and responsibility;
  • You put people and human interactions above processes and rules;
  • You understand the value of “measure twice - cut once” and you work by this mantra;
  • You own your successes and your failures, and constantly seek to improve;
  • You keep your mind on the product we’re building, and are permanently aware of how each small action influences its success.

What do we value in our Engineering team?

  • Your studies were in Computer Science, Mathematics or Engineering;
  • You’re a problem solver, and you’re eager to experiment and learn new things;
  • You write code optimizing for clarity and readability;
  • You value testing very highly;
  • You write software aiming at reducing the cost of change;
  • You enjoy pair programming and code reviews, and see your job as a collaborative effort rather than solitary work;
  • Engineering work is mostly about compromises and so you’re always open to discuss different approaches to problems;
  • You’re happy to collaborate with your community and industry, either in open source projects or presenting at meetups and conferences;

Since you’ll be working in the iOS team…

  • You have experience with Objective-C and Swift;
  • You have understanding of tools like CocoaPods, Fastlane, etc;
  • You have in-depth knowledge of common architectural approaches common in iOS;
  • You keep yourself up to date about tools that make your life easier and reference architectures in your field;
  • You have experience with acceptance, integration, unit testing;
  • You have experience with reactive programming;

What do we offer?

  • An Empowered Team – Engineering owns tech debt and tech improvement decisions; we collaborate tightly with our product team but we’re all very mindful not to step on each other’s toes. We own technical decisions, take responsibility and are accountable for them.
  • Preventive culture, rather than reactive – While some of us participate in on call activities, we have a very low amount of actual production emergencies. A lot of energy goes into fixing root causes and we are very proud of not having anyone in firefighting mode.
  • Career building is part of the deal – you don’t join to just write tests and contribute to the product - you also join to improve your career. We pay special attention to your personal development and make sure you’re focusing on the skills that matter the most to you.
  • Lean processes – we try hard to cut meetings and processes to a minimum, to ensure that you’re focusing on being productive. And we encourage all interactions to be direct and open, not forcing you to go through any intermediaries to get your work done.
  • United in diversity – with people from all over the world, from Tunisia to France, from India to the Poland, we are multicultural by default and proud to be so. We all come from different walks of life and cultural backgrounds, and we continue to push for diversity in our team!
  • We’re building a team, not just making money – we solve hard problems together but we also relax and have fun. From team cooking to going on company trips, from office parties to go-karting, we’ll make sure you have a good work-life balance.
  • The future will be amazing – the list of non-trivial challenges we’ll be dealing with includes developer APIs, security issues, scaling access to a lot of data (among other things we can’t tell you about :-) ); all of this with location and anonymity as their own dimensions in Jodel.
  • No one else is doing what we’re doing – it’s that simple. We’re pioneering local communication and since communication is a basic human need, our work is just very very exciting. On top of that, we are one of the few large scale European Social Networks. There’s not that many and we’re very proud to be “Made in Europe”.

So, would you like to apply?

Here’s what our hiring process looks like:

  1. The first step is very important for us to get to know you better. This should take you about 15 minutes to complete: start the survey. There is no right or wrong!
  2. After you apply successfully, we will get in contact with you within 36h for giving you feedback and checking the next step together with you.
  3. You will have an appointment with one of our Engineers in person or Skype, to have a deep talk about our technical challenges, opportunities and your approach.
  4. From that point on we create the next steps together and also ask you, what you need for making a good decision!

Our hiring process takes some time – but we we’re assuming you want this job, not just any job. For us, having the right attitude from the moment you apply, is as important as having the right skills on your CV.

So if you share this conviction, you already passed the first test!
