Role Description

Polywise is creating a fun, interactive way to read long-form nonfiction content on your phone in bite-sized visual sessions. Just as podcasts brought a feeling of productivity to the morning commute, we’re turning shorter breaks throughout the day into moments of interactive, visual learning. The core of our product is a new format for nonfiction content that’s designed from the ground up for the mobile use case - easy to consume but impactful visual learning experiences on your phone.

We are a small, highly technical, experienced team. We’ve worked and studied at places like Google, Harvard, and Stanford. CEO Daniel Terry previously founded Pocket Gems and Episode Interactive, leading mobile games companies which have reached 250M users and raised over $150 million from Sequoia and Tencent.

We’ve recently closed a large round of seed funding and are seeking an experienced iOS engineer who will be our first full-time engineering hire.

Responsibilities

  • Work with product teams to design, estimate, and build new features
  • Quickly distill fast-moving product requirements into tangible engineering tasks
  • Produce high-quality, well-documented and tested code
  • Help shape our engineering culture by coming up with ideas, tools, and infrastructure wherever you see a problem to be solved
  • Make key decisions around our tech stack and the architecture of our entire code base
  • Keep up to date with the state-of-the-art of iOS development

About You

  • 4+ years experience with iOS development
  • Demonstrated skills in delivering high quality code
  • Experience working with designers and product managers

What We Offer

  • Competitive salary
  • Meaningful equity at a well-funded early stage company
  • Medical, dental, vision, etc.
  • Flexible paid time off
