iOS Developer


Shiftgig, one of Chicago’s hottest and fastest growing technology companies, is actively seeking an iOS Developer in our Chicago office. We are a tech company in a non-tech space and as such, we have a lot of interesting problems to solve. Our architecture is centered around internal and external APIs with consuming clients being our single page applications and native mobile apps.

What you'll do:

  • You enjoy creating solid, clean code so you won’t hate yourself the next time you have to visit it.
  • You have a love of software development and making neat things to help people in their daily lives. The social aspect of our business is very important to our team.
  • You know how to balance pragmatic, iterative development with the long term vision of a scalable and usable product.
  • You’re able to work as part of a small team, but be self-motivated and comfortable solving problems independently.
  • You’re excited about researching and implementing technologies you’ve never implemented before.
  • You have an appreciation for good design and good user experience. You don't have to be a designer yourself, but you should be able to work with designers and have a solid idea of what makes a friendly and delightful native app.
  • You’re able to quickly analyse bugs and usability issues in live apps, and provide solutions for those problems with a quick turnaround.

What you'll need:

  • At least 2 years of iOS development experience with Objective-C and Swift (All new code is written in Swift, but 20-40% of the apps are coded with Objective-C)
  • Experience consuming REST interfaces and building asynchronous networking clients.
  • Experience with unit testing. Familiarity with OCMock and/or OHHTTPStubs a plus.
  • Experience with Core Location and geofencing technologies
  • Experience with user testing and direct QA, or a desire and willingness to interact directly with users to solve issues.

Nice-to-have skills:

  • Experience with Couchbase Lite or Firebase (or some other asynchronous, replicating data store)
  • Experience with Core Location and geofencing technologies
  • Any experience with non-mobile technologies - Python, Javascript, HTML, whatever!
  • Experience with Agile methodology
