Meet TuneIn Engineering
We value being a top-notch engineering organization, and have the same high standards with our code and people. We make time for quality, we are agile and pragmatic, we keep it simple, we are data driven, and we love getting better. Check out our principals here: https://github.com/tunein/engineering/blob/master/Principles.md
We regularly invest time in our developers and support their growth, and we show this in a number of ways—clear job responsibilities and expectations for career paths, freedom to move teams, and our quarterly Discovery Days, during which developers are free to spend time on innovative features, products, or approaches to problems ("hackathon" like); address nagging issues or problems that take time away from adding value to TuneIn; or simply learn a new technology.
About the Position
TuneIn is looking for a talented and passionate software engineer to contribute to our flagship TuneIn application. Along with excellent skills in object-oriented software design and programming, the successful candidate will have experience building complex user interfaces and writing unit tests. Excellent communication skills are a requirement, as they will be collaborating closely with engineers throughout the company as well as our product and design teams to add new and innovative features to our app.
What You’ll Do
As a Staff Software Engineer on our iOS team, you will get to work on a complex and completely native product that is actively used by millions of people around the world. We are a small team in which every engineer has an enormous impact on the product we ship. You will be maintaining and improving not just our core iOS application, but it’s extensions into CarPlay and watchOS, as well as helping us explore integrations with iMessages and tvOS.
You should feel as comfortable brainstorming and conceptualizing new features with product managers and designers as you are collaborating with backend engineers to bring those features to production. You will work with our support team and quality assurance engineers to triage bugs and solve production issues. To succeed here, you have a real passion for growing yourself, through learning about new iOS technologies and software practices; and others, through information sharing, mentoring, and thorough code reviews.

· Programming experience with Objective-C and Swift
· 8+ years of software development experience
· Bachelor's degree in Computer Science is desirable
· Experience crafting user interfaces from design comps
