Whether you have experience in iOS, or are driven to learn, at heart, you must be a coder. A builder. A maker. You must love solving challenging technical problems with simple, elegant solutions. You sweat the details, but also know when to let go and ship. You hate the code you wrote last week. You understand algorithmic complexity, but know that 90% of being a good programmer is simply writing readable code. You want to be part of a team, building products that people fall in love with. If this is you, let’s talk.
