Full Time
An exciting opportunity to be the first hire outside of the founders at a new fintech startup who recently had a successful crowdfunding campaign and have now been accepted into a fintech accelerator. They are a startup getting ready to disrupt the world of investing. They are on a mission to make investing accessible to everyone. Their product is a mobile app that combines:

- Zero cost stock trading / share dealing for self-directed investing
- A social platform for connecting with independent financial advisors and other
- Much, much more...

You are a polyglot engineer who has experience and interest in computer science and a range of technologies across the stack but happen to be mostly experienced and passionate about building great native mobile apps right now. You care about quality, code craft and take pride in the work you produce. You are hands-on and collaborative. You are a fast learner and are not afraid to work with new technologies and develop a deep understanding of the business domain.

The Role

Work directly with the CTO and other stakeholders to deliver a compelling holistic technical solution taking ownership of and initiative on significant parts of the platform.

- Apply your Swift magic to bring designs and prototypes (Sketch/Principle) to life

- Help deliver an outstanding mobile user experience by applying lean and data-driven design in collaboration with UX
- Work across the stack and the delivery pipeline where needed


In addition to aptitude, integrity and diligence they are looking for a high degree of proven real-world experience needed to build non-trivial consumer facing mobile apps (you have published an app to the App Store)

Your experience covers a good chunk of the following:
- Core skills: iOS 9 (supporting iOS 8.x), Swift 2.x, UIKit, Interface Builder, Auto Layout, Core Animation
- Supporting libraries and frameworks: RxSwift (or ReactiveCocoa), AlamoFire, SwiftyJson, Realm.io
- Software engineering: GoF design patterns as well as IoC/DI, MVVM

- Testing: Unit testing, UI testing (eg. XCUIKit, Appium)


A competitive startup salary (up to £60K) dependent on experience plus:

- Flexible working arrangements
- As the first hire, the opportunity to influence and shape other benefits on offer
