About The Position

As a Senior iOS Engineer you will aim to enhance Raise's app across several, meaningful updates rather than all at once.

When it comes to work product, the ideal candidate prioritizes user needs over the technical feasibility of implementing them, and appreciates a meticulous attention to detail when it comes to designing an app’s look and feel. You know how to prioritize considerations like performance and accessibility. Most of all, you care about people and making their lives better through your work.
