Job Board/iOS Engineer at Lickability
Lickability is a small software studio in NYC building iOS apps with clients like Meetup, The Atlantic, Aloe Bud, Houseparty, and more. We've also created a few of our own apps, Pinpoint and Accelerator.
We’re hiring a full-time iOS engineer to work in our NYC office. You’ll join a team focused on building delightful apps for clients, as well as our own products.
At Lickability, collaboration is key. As an iOS Engineer, you’ll have the opportunity to work side-by-side with teammates, participate in architecture and project-planning discussions, and contribute to our company style guide so we can keep getting better at what we do.
Our application process has three steps: a phone screen, a take-home project, and an interview.
Phone screen: A quick conversation, typically lasting about 20–30 minutes, to help us get a basic understanding of your skills and personality and allow you to ask us any questions you have about the company or the hiring process.
Take-home project: A simple code test relevant to the skills we’re looking for where you can show us what you consider to be your best work. The project can be completed on your own time and has no time limit.
In-person interview: The interview is split into four parts, and will take roughly four hours. First, we’ll ask you questions about the code test and go over your iOS / Swift / Programming knowledge. Then, we’ll work alongside you to design an API.
Finally, we’ll take you out to lunch so you can get to know us better, ask us questions, and see if you’d be a good addition to the team. We know that interviews can be stressful, so we’ll do our best to create a friendly, supportive environment that feels closer to what it’s like to actually work here—you are encouraged to ask questions, look up documentation, and Google answers to questions as needed.
Inclusivity is important to us. Our team, like much of the tech industry, is lacking diversity—we want to do better. So far, our efforts include researching and implementing more inclusive recruiting methods, company-wide diversity and bias training, and sponsoring community conferences like try! Swift—and we're always looking for and considering other ways of promoting inclusivity at our company. We’re actively working on making Lickability a friendly and welcoming place to work for everyone.
