Our business is growing fast and we need talented engineers to keep the momentum going and build toward our vision of being the easiest and most productive way to build amazing apps.
Some of the top brands in the world like Burger King, Amtrak, GE, and more are building mission-critical apps on top of our platform, and we have big plans to build an even better app development platform with your help!
Were looking for engineers experienced in iOS development to help us continue to build out Capacitor and the platform around it that empowers web developers all over the world to build amazing mobile apps using web technologies.
Core Objectives Could Include
Develop Capacitor core and plugins to build a seamless bridge between native and web.
Reduce friction for developers building production-ready mobile apps.
Work with the open-source community to curate Capacitor plugins.
Integrate web-based components and APIs within a native app environment.
Desired Skills and Characteristics
You enjoy interacting with open-source community members (developers) as well as enterprise customers in a professional manner and in general helping them get more out of our software through solid documentation and demos.
You have substantive practical experience as a developer building complex native apps and/or web apps.
You are a strong communicator and communicate effectively in writing.
A CS degree and the knowledge of core concepts it provides are highly valued though not strictly required.

Youre results-oriented. You like creatively solving problems and using your knowledge and expertise to help people in a range of ways.
Your talents enhance Ionics culture of humility, authenticity, continuous learning and improvement, transparency, communication, and customer-centricity.
You are open to the idea of working across the technology stack from native app development to front-end web development with a range of technologies, as opposed to wanting to focus on a specific area of engineering.
Experience building mobile apps on iOS and/or Android.
Experience building rigorous platform testing with continuous integration (CI) tooling.
We are open to a candidate with less web development experience but a stronger native app background and willingness to learn, as we believe great engineers should be able to work in any language for any platform.
