iOS Engineer

Job description

Lickability is a small software studio in NYC that builds iOS apps for customers and clients. We’ve created our own apps like Pinpoint and Accelerator and helped build apps for great companies like MeetupJet, and The New Yorker.


We’re looking to hire an on-site, full-time software engineer in New York who is fluent in Swift on iOS to work on client projects, as well as our own products.

We pride ourselves on five core values:


1. Simplicity

Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler. Inessential complexity is bad design.


2. Craft

Pay attention to every detail. Take extra care even when it goes unnoticed.


3. Clarity

Build and explain systems as explicitly as possible. Avoid cleverness.


4. Collaboration

Ask for help and offer it. We’re better when we work together.


5. Delight

Have fun. Make things that will help people be happier.


  • Expert knowledge of the latest Swift APIs
  • A desire to continue to improve knowledge of Swift and iOS
  • Proficiency in source control systems
  • Expert knowledge in unit and integration testing
  • Knowledge of linting tools like SwiftLint
  • Understanding of CI systems
  • Strong understanding of instrumentation tools like Time Profiler and Allocations
  • Ability to architect clean code using object-oriented design
  • Knowledge in practical programming principles and patterns like the Single Responsibility principle
  • Well-developed interpersonal and communication skills


Women and people from underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply.
