Job Description

Tinder brings people together. With tens of millions of users, hundreds of millions of downloads, 2 billion swipes per day, 20 million matches per day and a presence in every country on earth, our reach is expansive—and rapidly growing.
At Tinder, we are passionate about building software to bring our growing global user base one swipe closer to a new adventure! We empower all team members to contribute solutions - this is not a top down organization. We feel it is important to learn from one another and grow as a team.
As Senior iOS Engineer at Tinder, you will have an outsized impact and ownership of the most visible aspects of the Tinder App. We are deeply invested in challenging norms, constantly improving architecture design, exploring emergent tech and ideas, and leveraging new technologies in interesting ways to deliver an app that is widely known the world over. 
By applying to this role you will be considered for all iOS roles currently available in our LA and San Francisco offices. We currently work together remotely and we've adapted our recruiting processes to accommodate virtual interviews with prospective hires.

What You'll Do:

  • Contribute to the architecture, design and implementation of consumer facing features in the Tinder App
  • Build compelling in-app experiences that will reach millions of users globally
  • Coordinate with the product and design team(s) influence the roadmap and product development of Tinder App and services 
  • Create and maintain internal shared frameworks and libraries
  • Shape the future of optimized analytics at Tinder from the ground up with innovative data tools for the analytics and data scientist team(s)
  • Evolve Tinder’s architecture to support multiple authentication flows and account management
  • Mentor, collaborate, and learn from innovative and passionate team members
  • What You'll Need

  • 5+ years of professional experience building native iOS applications
  • Significant experience building applications in Swift
  • Knowledge of Swift concepts (structs, optionals, generics etc.) 
  • Experience building user-facing features with autolayout 
  • Familiar with architecture patterns such as MVVM / VIPER etc. and their uses
  • Knowledge of iOS memory management and protocol-oriented programming 
  • Experience building and testing large-scale iOS apps and/or codebases
  • Nice To Have

  • Prior startup experience is excellent (but not necessary); a background that lends itself to being resourceful is what matters
  • Experience with building public APIs and mobile SDK’s 
  • Experience with native iOS frameworks like URL Session, Core Data and Core Animation. 
  • Comfortable working with legacy code and improving it
  • Experience with implementing In-App Purchases, StoreKit or implementing premium features in an iOS app
  • Experience communicating and implementing effective, solutions oriented improvements 
  • Experience collaborating with a small team while working interdependently within a cross-functional organization.  
  • A BS or MS in Computer Science or Engineering
    As part of our team, you’ll enjoy:
    • Working on a product that has an immediate impact on people’s lives all around the world
    • Collaborating with a team of creative, fun and driven colleagues 
    • Comprehensive health coverage, competitive salary, 401(k) employer match
    • Other perks and wellness benefits like a fitness membership subsidy, paid concierge medical membership, pet insurance offerings, and a commuter subsidy  
    • Access to mental health resources
    • Fertility preservation benefits
    • No Meeting Wednesdays, an annual Learning + Development stipend, and access to a wide range of product and service discounts through Perkspot
    • Charitable donations match up to $15,000 annually
