Senior iOS Developer at Robots & Pencils

 At Robots and Pencils, we’re expanding and looking for an iOS Developer to join our talented and world class robot team. What do we mean by world class? You’ll get to work with one of the developers who built udacity and with former lead engineers from major tech companies like Yahoo, Apple and Google.


Who you are:

You are someone who prefers to communicate through code. You love to create and have a strong desire to learn. In fact, you’re the first to rattle off which WWDC video would help your coworker.

You can speak to language best practices, understand when it’s reasonable to swizzle methods, have a strong understanding of generics and protocol oriented programming, and know the advantages and tradeoffs between closure/blocks and delegates. You’re also diligent about meeting allocated budgets and can work within time constraints, but you will never sacrifice quality.

On top of this, you are comfortable working in cross-functional teams and can share insights and expectations with stakeholders, clients, team members and various levels of management.


What you’ll do:

  • Design, program and test software.

  • Author and maintain relevant documentation for developers, clients and users.

  • Develop and refine prototypes to confirm requirements.

  • Program according to project plans (versions, sprints).

  • Lead release and post-release activities, such as support, versioning and maintenance.

  • Collaborate with our pencils (designers) to create interfaces that conform to Apple’s Human Interface Guidelines.

  • Peer review other team members’ code, and learn and adapt from peer review of your own code.

  • Support sales and project managers with technical insights, leading to the creation of budgets and schedules for projects.


Desired skills and experience:

  • 8+ years of delivering software with preference given to those who have a degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering or equivalent

  • High level of working knowledge with native iOS and/or Mac development using Xcode, Swift and Objective C.

  • High level of working knowledge with a distributed Version Control System

  • Experience with testing and behavior driven development


Work perks:

  • Working alongside smart, talented people who will push you and help you grow.

  • Working for pretty amazing clients, including media giants, F500 and FTSE500, classic gaming studios, and top educational institutions.

  • The autonomy to make decisions to help grow our robots team in both breadth and depth.

  • A great work environment and health benefits.

This position is available as a remote opportunity, or can be based out of our Canadian office locations.
