Mobile Applications Developer

Engineering | Seattle, WA | Full Time

Job Description

Sporcle is looking for an experienced mobile applications developer to join our growing team. Your goals are to maintain and improve our existing mobile offerings as well as define and implement new mobile applications for the Sporcle brand. As a fast-moving startup, we want to bring on talented, energetic individuals with a passion for developing fun and innovative applications that are played by millions. We strive to maintain a casual and fun work environment (dogs are welcome too), but we're serious about meeting our deadlines to produce the best experience for our users and contributors.

As the next Sporcle employee for mobile what you should bring to the table:

  • Enthusiasm and passion for mobile devices
  • Attention to detail and a hunger for stability and performance
  • Deep knowledge of the iOS ecosystem (XCode, Objective-C, Cocoa Touch)
  • Know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em; Understand when to embrace and extend existing code, not just rewrite from scratch.
  • Comfortable working in a Linux & open-source environment with source control and other content management tools.
  • Able to commute to Sporcle's office in Seattle, Washington (We're in Fremont across from the Burke Gilman trail)

A BS, MS, or PhD in Computer Science or equivalent work experience is necessary. Previous experience in a startup environment helps, but certainly isn't required. Entry level applicants with relevant experience are encouraged to apply.  Being part of a small company means that there's no help desk, no formal review committees or rigid structure. We work as a team, but everyone is expected to be an independent problem solver with the ability to research and solve their own issues. We have plans and goals, but also embrace change and a little bit of chaos.

Already a Sporcle user? We'd love to know more about your experiences with the site or our iPhone apps. Include your Sporcle handle and tell us about your favorite games.
