Lead iOS Developer

Reverb is looking for a passionate developer ready to push our codebase forward. We believe in shipping code quickly and safely and we'll be relying on you to help us tackle the most impactful projects and make the right improvements to keep us accountable.

We work primarily in Swift. We sweat the details, spending time polishing a critical feature to delight our users. We are a lean team and always try to leverage the right tool for the job whether that be native code, a web view, or SwiftUI in the (near future).

Everyone at Reverb takes creative initiative, helps set their own priorities, and comes up with new ways to grow the business. Our software engineers take pride in crafting great software but take even more pride in product ownership, taking ideas from concept to release and beyond. Not sure what it's like to work here?
