About The Position

As a Senior iOS Engineer you will aim to enhance the Raise app across several, meaningful updates rather than all at once. At Raise, we work carefully but iterate quickly, and we like to spend time choosing the right tools for the job. We value on-the-job learning and skills development, so while working knowledge of ReactiveCocoa/MVVM is a plus, it’s not required—we’re happy to help you expand your skillset.

When it comes to work product, the ideal candidate prioritizes user needs over the technical feasibility of implementing them, and appreciates a meticulous attention to detail when it comes to designing an app’s look and feel. You know how to prioritize considerations like performance and accessibility. Most of all, you care about people and making their lives better through your work.


  • Partner with mobile engineers, designers, product managers, researchers, and data scientists to develop highly functional and elegantly delightful experiences that enrich the lives of Raise members
  • Write maintainable code efficiently within an environment that emphasizes thoughtful design, continuous integration and rapid deployment
  • Break down daunting problems into manageable pieces and efficiently complete tasks with minimal supervision
  • Research industry trends and best practices

  • Experience writing Swift 3 required; Objective-C, ReactiveCocoa, React Native or RIBlets a plus
  • Experience with CocoaPods and automated continuous integration/deployment
  • Experience implementing Apple Pay via payment SDKs such as Stripe or Braintree
