Backstage + Sonicbids is hiring a

Senior iOS Swift engineer

Brooklyn, United States

Backstage is the industry-leading marketplace connecting performing artists (actors, dancers, musicians and more) with casting directors seeking to hire them.  And it's time that our best-in-class web tools had a best-in-class native mobile experience to complement them!

Our responsive site is a great start -- but with a native app, our actors will be able to receive immediate notifications of new audition listings that match their profiles; apply during their lunch break; and use our messaging system to converse in real time with casting directors.  Not to mention all the possibilities for location-based services, in-app purchases, and a native UI to make searching, profile editing, and subscriptions that much simpler.

You will join forces with the experienced mobile agency that is building the first version of our app, and will have full ownership by the time we reach v1.0.  You will have the support of a veteran team of back-end web engineers and a top-notch product designer, as well as the agency's consultants.  Our team is small, nimble, and moves quickly, with minimal overhead.  We emphasize shipping software, and we deploy to web daily.  We go out of our way to make opportunities for everyone to learn and build new skills, but we don't go out of our way to have fun doing it -- that just happens naturally!
