Lead iOS Developer [Remote, NO C2C]

Engineering | Remote | Contract

Job Description

JOB TYPE: Freelance, Contract Position - No agencies (See notes below)

LOCATION: Remote (+/- 3 hours of daily overlap with EST working hours required

HOURLY RANGE: Our client is looking to pay $70 - $100 USD / HR

ESTIMATED DURATION: 40Hrs/Week - Long Term, ongoing project 


Braintrust ( is a user-controlled talent network, where you keep 100% of what you earn and actually get to own the platform. We've been onboarding some big clients and specifically need a Lead iOS Developer for our client.  



There are over 24 million golfers in the United States, and about 16 million of them don’t belong to a private country club. We want to bring the competitive country club experience to the public golfer. We want to make it easy for people to connect and compete on the golf course. This project is for someone who wants to establish a voice, build a brand, and build a community. The development of this MVP is the first step towards this effort.



Our goal is to minimize wasted work across teams as much as possible! We would expect our design and development partners to be focused on broad page construction, writing code and building sophisticated algorithms, and for the company's team to handle the writing and entry of specific data for screens. It is important to us that we continue work within Figma since that is what our team is comfortable designing in.


Part of the working agreement should include daily communication via email / text / etc. and two weekly status updates. Specific times can be confirmed ad-hoc. As part of these communications, we would ask for updates on hours worked on a frequent basis that allows us to be flexible in how much detail and depth is applied to each screen. We are a lean, bootstrapped startup and managing costs is an important priority. We would also ask that the development team ask for feedback on the process and next steps where they see fit, in the spirit of this priority.


We would like to do a small friends and family “Alpha” release halfway through the build, and a “Beta” release at the end of the build. The company will own the family and friend release of the Alpha. As well as owning the surveying and product testing, and communicate the feedback to the development team.


The company’s MVP will be built for three types of stakeholders: 1) investors, 2) core users, and 3) prospective employees. It needs to be built with high fidelity for pilot users. It needs to have the ability to plug into APIs, as well as test and track user behavior.
