Backstory is actively recruiting exceptional iOS engineers that want to work for a small, scrappy start-up with lofty goals.

How teammates succeed at Backstory

  • Believe in Backstory's goal to first make our images enjoyable, and then invent memory as a new form of entertainment
  • Pride themselves on their kindness, passion, humility and work ethic
  • Self-start, stay scrappy, stay focused, move fast, and build 
  • Take initiative, have the courage to voice and support their opinions
  • Take an active part in planning products, and investigating product performance
  • Self motivating, self disciplined, and self aware. They enjoy collaborating with teammates to find great solutions, but get most of their energy from their own productivity
  • Would rather work smarter and be highly productive to enjoy a great work-life balance
  • Focus on great results rather than on process
  • Collaborate with team members through concise and articulate speech and writing, in an environment where open communication is the norm
  • Challenge, mentor and learn from their peers


The role

As a Senior iOS Engineer, you will utilize your extensive native mobile experience to develop, release, and maintain iOS apps written in a combination of Objective-C, Swift, and Flutter. You'll be excited to learn Flutter if you haven't had the opportunity to utilize the UI toolkit.

You should enjoy crafting elegant and engaging experiences, backed by good quality, readable, testable, and well-documented code. We expect team members to have the discipline to test their own code with a combination of automated and manual testing. 

We enjoy challenging each other and collaborating on architecture, design, and best practices. You should too. 


What will help you stand out

  • A github account with open source projects created by you
  • Experience developing image-based applications
  • Familiarity with Ruby on Rails and web technologies
  • Extensive experience working remotely


Working at Backstory

  • We believe that life is too short to not love where you work. When all colleagues advocate respect, humility and passion, great things happen.
  • We've practiced and advocated for remote work since 2010. We firmly believe that amazing experiences and awesome software don't need to be created in an office. 
  • We are not a meetings-based company. (We can't stand most meetings.)
  • We roll up our sleeves, work fast, hit our goals and get back to friends and family. To achieve that balance, we prefer consistent performance over performance that comes in waves.
