Uniiverse

Lead iOS and Mobile Developer

Position

You will lead all aspects of the development of the Uniiverse iOS app. (Which is extraordinarily beautiful! Ask us for a sneak preview of what we've built so far.) You are excited to create a custom UI, and integrate with our API backend built in Rails. You will build geofencing features, advanced push notifications, contact list integration, camera integration, beautiful animations, and more. You should be familiar with automated testing. You have shipped excellent apps before, been through the App Store review process, supported live apps in production, and are comfortable managing app updates (even as the API evolves). You have astute taste, a strong sense of design and care strongly about UI/UX.
