Every day, our talented and multi-faceted team is working on creating the best travel app in the world. From the historical center of Amsterdam, we're building the place to go to for travelers that want to plan, track and remember their adventures around the globe.
Our rapidly growing team of 16 (and counting!) is on a mission to inspire and connect people through travel. In the last 4 years we have welcomed over 2.000.000 users who added steps in 180+ countries. Our app was featured in Apple's WWDC keynote speeches of 2017 and 2018, and just a few months ago Google created this amazing short video about us. Surely, this puts a huge smile on our face, but our adventure has only just begun!
iOS development at Polarsteps
We care deeply about ensuring a seamless, top-quality user experience for every one of our travelers. We provide a fundamentally new type of product and are continuously iterating and innovating to turn our application into the best travel app out there - that's why we've been featured multiple times in the App Store and hold a close relationship with Apple. As an iOS engineer at Polarsteps, you can expect to work with a small team across these challenges. This includes everything from fine-tuning the performance of our app to building complex state-of-the-art screens.
Our ideal candidate
You know, perks... the cool stuff. Here is a list of things we have to offer. And yes, that free flight to a random location you've been hearing about, it's true. Try it out and give our Teleporter a spin here.
P.S. As for our tech stack, we’re constantly aiming for the best possible setup based on our needs as we scale - we’re hosted in Heroku, use Amazon S3 for media storage, python (Flask) in the backend/API, CloudFront + Lambda@Edge for caching, AngularJS in the frontend, and we have fully native apps in iOS and Android. We have single-command build&deploy tasks for production and staging, and we do automated testing with protractor on the web, XCTest on iOS and UI Automator on Android.
