Grammarly is hiring a

Senior Software Engineer, iOS

Kyiv, Ukraine

The Opportunity

For most people, the challenge and inconvenience of writing well on mobile is one of the biggest barriers to using their phones for professional communication. That’s why we built the Grammarly Keyboard for iOS: to bring effective and mistake-free writing to mobile devices. Since launching three months ago, we’ve gained stellar traction — our users are using the keyboard more than 60 times per day.

But while the keyboard may look simple, it’s extremely challenging to execute flawlessly. A one-second delay after you hit a button in an app might be ok, but would you use a keyboard that didn’t respond instantly to your touch? When you build a product that can respond instantly while running machine learning models and continuously communicating with servers in one tenth of a second, it becomes even more challenging to deliver a delightful user experience.

We are looking for an experienced iOS Engineer who will help us level up the Grammarly Keyboard and its companion app to a world-class user experience. You will work in a team of iOS Engineering professionals as well as partner closely with the design team from the ideation stage to ultimately bring your ideas to life.

What You Will Accomplish

  • Contribute to the development of the app architecture.
  • Collaborate with the team to design and build new features.
  • Ensure the quality and responsiveness of the keyboard.
  • Deliver a smooth experience in a resource-constrained environment.

Talents You Bring to the Team

  • You embody our E.A.G.E.R. values (Ethical, Adaptable, Gritty, Empathetic, Remarkable).
  • Strong knowledge of Swift.
  • Strong knowledge of UI architecture approaches.
  • Comprehensive experience with UIKit, AutoLayout, CoreAnimation.
  • Experience with custom UI elements.
  • Understanding of Apple’s human interface guidelines.
  • Strong knowledge of multithreading (GCD).
  • Experience with performance and memory tuning with tools.
  • Strong aesthetics skills preferred.
  • CS or algorithmic background.
  • Experience building App Extensions is a plus.

What Grammarly Offers You

  • Big goals, challenging work, fast learning cycles, practical training, and meaningful feedback.
  • Project exposure and ownership that impacts our world, users, product, colleagues, and business.
  • Healthcare, communication coaching, and great coworkers!
