iOS Developer

iOS

Based in Montreal, Canada

There’s a reason you carry an iPhone in your pocket. It’s something about the iPhone look... the iPhone feel… the way your Apple Watch starts sending you heart rate alerts when your Xcode successfully compiles… or the limitless possibilities of SwiftUI, especially now that those medieval iPhone 6’s have been taken off life support.

As Transit’s newest iOS developer, you’ll be the swift-handed hero of millions of iPhone-wielders who don’t rely on a car to get around. You’ll help our team experiment, simplify, and perfect every aspect of the car-free commute: from our bodacious biking and subway maps, crowdsourced real-time displays, a devilishly simple step-by-step navigator, multimodal trip planner, and secret upcoming features you’ll discover once you’re hired.

Transit is written in Objective-C and Swift, and the business logic is implemented in a C++ shared library – our iOS and Android teams work in tandem on that part of the codebase. The shared library allows us to reduce code duplication, while maintaining high standards by using UIKit and SwiftUI on iOS to build a UI that is familiar, native, and as smooth as Steve Jobs’ forehead.

📝 Responsibilities

  • Collaborate with all-star teammates to dream up Transit’s next big feature.

  • Develop those features, refine existing ones, and maintain the iOS app with your tender love and care.

  • Refactor and refine Transit’s architecture to make maintenance simpler to carry out, and new features more-easily integrated.

  • Conspire with our design team priests to bring their vision (and yours) to pixel-plated perfection.


✅ Requirements

  • You're a self starter, adaptable and detail oriented.

  • Good knowledge of Swift or Objective-C, plus UIKit or SwiftUI


💯 Would be nice if…

  • Experience with C++.

  • Familiarity with Git and GitHub.

  • Y’all can speak the English good, especially for our technical documentation

  • You are the maestro behind at least one superb (and ideally, published) iOS app.

  • Passionate about cities, urbanism, public transit, design, technology, and/or custom Slack emoji reacts.

💰 Compensation and benefits

$70,000 CAD - $110,000 CAD per year, based on experience

  • Cost of living adjustments are possible for employees who are not based in Montreal

  • Stock options

  • Comprehensive medical and dental coverage

  • 5 weeks vacation

  • Four-day work week at full-time salary (yes, you read that right)

  • Apple laptop and equipment

  • $1,500 annual mobility allowance. STM? BIXI? Uber? E-bike? Scooter? Going car-free is free at Transit.

  • A training and development budget

  • Generous maternal/paternal/parental leave policy. Gotta fill out our tandem bicycles somehow!

  • Flexible work hours

  • Spend your days surrounded by first-rate teammates and the best view of Montreal and/or [insert exotic Zoom background]

  • When you’re in the office: you’ll be in urbanist heaven, surrounded by Mile End’s urban gardens, bike paths, BIXI docks, bus stops, a metro station, and limitless restaurants… cafés… bars… concert halls… bagel boutiques…

  • Communal lunch-and-learn with free food in the office each week

👨‍💻 A note on diversity

Public transit is used by overwhelmingly more women and people of colour than other modes of transportation. We try to make sure the diversity of our users is reflected in the team that serves them. Because when we include people of all races, genders, sexual orientations, ages, and identities — we end up building a better app for everyone who uses Transit.

We encourage candidates of all ages, genders, origins and orientations to apply. If you’d like to specify which pronouns you use, feel free to include that in your application email.

And if your lived experience has given you a unique perspective on all things transportation, mobility, accessibility, urbanism? Let us know, and we’ll make sure your application gets the attention it merits.

📬 How to apply

We'd love to hear from you. Send your resume, GitHub account and other relevant info to jobs+ios@transitapp.com.

PS: When you apply, let us know how you heard about the position! Whispers, grapevines, middle-of-the-night Google searches? We’re dying to know.
