About Argent

Join us as we reimagine the future of money and the internet. Our mission is to make them more open and fair, driving new economic opportunities and putting people in control of their digital lives.

To start we've built the first crypto wallet with the simplicity and security of the best new bank apps - yet we never hold users’ assets. It takes the complexity out of Ethereum and is driven by our dedication to user experience.

We launched in 2018 and have a world-class team with experience scaling mobile apps to tens of millions of users. Our eclectic backgrounds include PhDs in nuclear physics and quantum cryptography. We’re fortunate to be backed by the top VCs in Europe, including Index Ventures, Creandum and firstminute capital.

iOS Engineer role

You'll be crucial to our effort to build the best mobile product in crypto and fintech. This involves putting yourself in our users' shoes and figuring out how to address the opportunities and challenges facing them.

You'll have proven experience building top-tier apps that you're proud of. This will have involved working closely with other iOS engineers, quickly shipping features in an agile environment, and taking ownership of the entire development lifecycle. You'll also have worked with other stakeholders - such as designers, QA, and product - to build and develop world class UX.

Ideally you'll be passionate about the ecosystem and have contributed to open source projects and relevant discussions online.

In the role you'll work closely with a small team of highly skilled and experienced iOS engineers, as well as our founders, designers, backend engineers and QA.

Our app

The Argent app is 100% Swift. We use our own open source web3.swift library for communicating with the Ethereum blockchain. We follow a Flux-inspired architecture and write unit tests to cover complex pieces of business logic.

Requirements

  • 3 years experience building top tier iOS apps, minimum 2 years in Swift

  • Knowledge of the Apple ecosystem (everything from UIKit animation and navigation stacks down to Keychain and Operation Queues)

  • Experience in debugging iOS apps (memory management, object lifecycle, view hierarchy)

  • Experience testing iOS apps with unit tests and UI tests

  • Experience implementing different design patterns (VIPER, MVVM, Redux)

  • Good understanding of network protocols and data persistence techniques

  • Familiar with implementing security best practices for safeguarding data on a mobile device

  • Experience with continuous integration and source control, App Store Connect, Certificates & Entitlements

  • Strong computer science fundamentals

  • Can communicate clearly, and collaborate, with a remote team

How we work

  • We work remotely, transparently and balance Argent with the rest of our lives. We’ve all got loved ones with unpredictable schedules, be they kids or cats.

  • Although we’re a distributed team you'll need to be based in the UK or Europe. This is because we find communication much easier when we’re in similar time zones and a short flight away. Within Europe you can choose to work wherever you like!

  • We get together for a week every quarter so we can collaborate in person, explore new solutions, and have fun. So far we’ve been to Nice, Toulouse, Brussels, Lisbon and Barcelona.

Equal opportunities

At the heart of what we do is making crypto accessible to everyone. We want the team itself to reflect that diversity so we’d strongly encourage applications from underrepresented demographics.

    • Coach and mentor fellow engineers

    • Constantly learn, improve on your skills, share knowledge and adapt to industry-wide best practices, processes and conventions

    Job Responsibilities

    - Build highly secure, world-class iOS app from scratch using Swift

    - Integrate AI models running CoreML

    - Run realtime inference neural network on iOS

    - Test app across variety of devices

    - Listen to users & contribute product ideas

    - Work closely with product design, backend engineers, AI team

    - Teach social app best practices to team

    Requirements

    - Deep experience building realtime, low-latency iOS apps

    - Deep experience building consumer apps & strong understanding of best practices

    - Real empathy for users, strong product sensibilities & good taste

    - Intellectual curiosity & fearlessness

    - Portfolio of products you've built

    - Experience writing in Swift

    Nice to Haves

    - Founder/CTO of a social network or app

    - Experience with hardware-accelerated graphics

    - 7+ years professional engineering experience

    - Experience with CoreML

    You will be one of the first 5 engineers at Transform. You will work directly with the founders and contribute both ideas and code. You will be asked to weigh in on engineering, product & business decisions. As the company succeeds, you will hopefully grow into a leadership role & potentially run an entire team.

    - Cash: $130 - 180k

    - Equity: 1.5 - 3%

    - Unlimited vacation, minimum 2 weeks per year

    Transform is backed by some of the most famous investors in Silicon Valley. Our founder/CEO is a successful 4x entrepreneur & single dad who got his start as a 911 paramedic in NYC (who happens to be latino).

    The #1 trait we look for in candidates is "intellectual fearlessness." People who attempt to do things that their resume says they're unqualified to do, things that would would scare normal people in their position. People who punch above their intellectual weight class.

    We don't care where you went to school or what you studied (or didn't study). We don't care if you have a PhD from MIT or you dropped out of high school. The only things we will judge is your attitude and your ability to do the work.

    This isn't out first rodeo as startup founders. We've set out to create a very intentional, high-performance company culture. We try to practice good self-care and encourage employees to do the same.

    Expect high standards, hard work and minimal stupidity

    Diversity & inclusion (gender, age, class, politics, ethnicity) isn’t just a nice thing we talk about. Due to the product we're building, it’s a strategic priority. Women & ethnic minorities especially welcome.
