We are looking for an iOS Engineer to work on our app used by millions
FULL-TIME · AMSTERDAM
About our workflow
We believe that software is gardening. We trust each other to make good decisions, to provide and accept constructive feedback. Collaboration is the key to making a great product.
We want to build solutions are long-lasting. This means writing code that is maintainable instead of quick fixes. Our products are constantly changing so our tech should be able to handle that. We believe that when code isn’t tested it’s legacy code. We understand that it sometimes takes time and a lot of hard thinking, but it’s worth it.
We try to give back to the community by open sourcing some of our tools. We build everything in a modular way, so that we can open source parts of apps. Last year, we published two projects that are part of our iOS app on GitHub and we’re planning to share even more.
What you’ll be doing
Mobile is “eating the world”. The world is shifting to mobile, and so are we. It’s a unique platform which calls for a distinct approach: the challenges and opportunities are different.
On the desktop, we solve a problem straightforwardly and elegantly. Big files aren’t a big deal on mobile, so we decided to do something different within the realm of WeTransfer, which is all about sharing creative work. We enable people to collect the content that’s on their phones and share them. Most apps operate in silos: your videos are on youtube, images on Pinterest, music on Spotify. We believe that great things happen when these are combined, and that’s what our new product does: it allows you to make mixed media boards with anything that’s on your phone.
We recently launched this new app on iOS; it’s a great first step, but obviously, we need to constantly improve it to make the experience even better.
