Meetup has been around the block—we were born back when 3D pixelated babies danced, bananas shouted "peanut butter jelly time" and phones only had one app: Phone. It turns out that people have a deep, innate human desire to meet up, so we’ve grown like crazy—but the desktop-centric, feature-cluttered product we started building over a decade ago just can’t sustain that kind of growth. We’re ready to reshape Meetup for the mobile, global future, and to craft experiences that echo the amazing feeling of going to a great Meetup.
In reinventing our entire user experience vision around mobile, we’re looking for an intrepid iOS Engineer to work on a platform that witnesses almost 500 daily meetups in NY alone while also bringing together tens of millions of people worldwide. You will be part of a team dedicated to giving our members opportunities to seek unique experiences, build friendships, and expand their networks.
We have a robust pipeline of new features to build, and we need your help!
As an iOS Engineer, you could be working on:
Implementing the transition to Swift and iOS 8
Designing tools for Meetup organizers
Improving user experience for RSVPing and paying for Meetups
Crafting new features to help members talk to each other online and off
Creating an onboarding narrative for Meetup Organizers
Ensuring continuity across all platforms
Building Meetup’s first universal app
Tools such as Xcode, TestFlight, Github, CocoaPods, Charles Proxy
Ideally, you possess:
A history of shipping great apps with an awesome portfolio to showcase
Excellent knowledge of Apple’s Core Data framework
UIKit experience, including VC Transitions, Auto Layout, and Storyboards
Experience in automation testing in any language
Our team is smart, ambitious, and passionate; the environment is relaxed and a lot of fun despite regular, tight deadlines. We are focused on quick, quality completion of projects and excited by what we do. We are looking for someone who is smart, collaborative, creative, and can get things done to a high quality and on tight deadlines.
Every member of the Meetup Team is expected to: be an Innovator; be a Collaborator; be a Champion for their ideas; be an Expert; have High Standards; be dedicated to the power of self-organized groups and our mission of A Meetup Everywhere About Most Everything ("MEME"); and most importantly, Get Stuff Done That Makes a Difference!
