Are you our next star player?

Reporting into a Lead Engineer or Engineering Manager and working under mentorship of a principal engineer, you will work with a team delivering key parts of our Native application strategy to build and own the industry’s best sports betting and trading platform!

Why we need you

You will help manage the levels of technical debt and help evolve coding practices. You’ll work with Tech Leads, Testers and other partners to ensure we deliver high quality engineering solutions with the right balance between delivery speed vs operational risk. You will work with your engineering manager or lead engineer and principal engineer in supporting the iOS development community within our organisation.

Who we’re looking for

You are self-motivated and willing to contribute at all levels, listening and learning from those around you. Culture is the foundation of success, and we want every one of our team to be a part of it and to drive it.

Your experience:

  • Current technical expertise in iOS Development, practices and an up-to-date understanding of app-store rules and regulations. This role will involve delivering technical decisions against organisational goals.
  • Experience of unit testing in iOS
  • Experience working within scrum or other modern agile methodologies
  • Experience in CI/CD in a native iOS environment, having an awareness about the challenges this brings

Your skills:

  • A good knowledge of Swift and some exposure to Objective-C
  • You understand MVVM-C, MVP, MVC and are able to articulate the pros and cons of each
  • A reasonable knowledge of the features, capabilities and constraints associated with supporting older SDKs (although we aggressively push to support only the smallest subset of older iOS versions)
  • You’re interested in engineering standard methodology, so we have a clear direction for continuous improvement.

Your behaviours:

  • Our engineers work closely with colleagues in all positions, so communication and interpersonal skills are important for this role
  • Modern software engineering relies on iterative, incremental development and fast feedback – we expect a solid grasp of the mechanics of this including a good understanding of automation and its role in modern software delivery
  • You are comfortable working independently or collaboratively with good time and prioritisation skills

What’s in it for you?

Our experience-based salaries are competitive. Plus, there’s a discretionary annual performance bonus. And we provide advice and dedicated assistance to those moving to Leeds.

Your package will include:

  • health and dental insurance for you, your partner and your children (if you all live at the same address)
