iOS Software Engineer

You are responsible for:

Writing clean, concise code in Swift
Working with other engineers through discussions, code review, and more
Collaborating with designers, product managers, and other engineers to iterate on new features
Ensuring the quality of the app through thoughtful code architecture decisions and automated testing

Skills and Experience:

At least 1 year of iOS development experience. (Our iOS engineers are excited to share knowledge and tips they’ve picked up over the years – and also look forward to learning from you!)
At least one app in the iOS App Store that you’ve contributed to. (We’d love to see what you’ve been working on.)
Familiarity with the iOS Human Interface Guidelines and their implementation. (We’re creative, while staying true to best iOS practices.)
Excellent written and verbal communication skills (Our team is remote, but we still enjoy close collaboration!)

Qualities that are important to us:

A desire to learn and discover – about iOS development, about what the root cause of an obscure bug is, about how the Wikipedia communities operate, and more.
Constantly improving your craft in pursuit of creating the best possible user experiences and solving complex problems
Proactively finding and reporting potential bugs or user experience issues for discussion with the team
We are a global organization with flexible work schedules, but we’re also collaborative. To ensure there are enough opportunities to communicate, this role needs at least four hours of your work day to occur between 14:00 UTC and 0:00 UTC.

Additionally, we’d love it if you have:

Some Objective-C experience. Like many apps that have been around for a while, the Wikipedia app is a mix of Swift and some legacy Objective-C code. While you don’t need to be an Obj-C expert, you shouldn’t be terrified if you end up in an Objective-C class while tracking down the source of a bug.
Written unit and UI tests
Built web services or APIs
Built frontend web applications using JavaScript, HTML, and CSS
Experience collaborating with a globally distributed team
Contributed to Wikipedia or other open projects
