iOS Software Engineer Summary

The Wikimedia Foundation is looking for an iOS Software Engineer to join our team, reporting to the Apps Engineering Manager.


iOS Software Engineer Details

If you are a passionate IOS Software Engineer, Come build the premier mobile Wikipedia experience!

You will work closely with the rest of our small, collaborative group to iterate on new ideas for the award-winning

Wikipedia iOS app. In this role, you will create new features, fix bugs, and define the future of Wikipedia on mobile devices.

Each day, millions of people use the open-source Wikipedia app in over three hundred languages.

Help us thoughtfully craft user experiences that empower and delight our users as they read and contribute to the

world’s largest resource for free knowledge.

iOS Software Engineer Responsibilities

The iOS Software Engineer will be writing clean, concise code in Swift

Working with other engineers through discussions, code review, and more

Collaborating with designers, product managers, and other engineers to iterate on new features

Ensuring the quality of the app through thoughtful code architecture decisions and automated testing

iOS Software Engineer Skills and Experience:

At least 1 year of iOS development experience.

(Our iOS engineers are excited to share knowledge and tips they have picked up over the years – and also look forward to learning from you!)

At least one app in the iOS App Store that you’ve contributed to. (Wed love to see what you’ve been working on.)

Familiarity with the iOS Human Interface Guidelines and their implementation.

(We’re creative while staying true to best iOS practices.)

Excellent written and verbal communication skills (Our team is remote, but we still enjoy close collaboration!)

Qualities that are important to us:

A desire to learn and discover – about iOS development, about what the root cause of an obscure bug is, about how

the Wikipedia communities operate, and more.

Constantly improving your craft in pursuit of creating the best possible user experiences and solving complex problems

Proactively finding and reporting potential bugs or user experience issues for discussion with the team

We are a global organization with flexible work schedules, but we’re also collaborative.

To ensure there are enough opportunities to communicate, this role needs at least four hours of your workday to occur between 14:00 UTC and 0:00 UTC.

Additionally, we’d love it if you have:

Some Objective-C experience. Like many apps that have been around for a while, the Wikipedia app is a mix of Swift

and some legacy Objective-C code. While you don’t need to be an Obj-C expert, you shouldn’t be terrified if you end

up in an Objective-C class while tracking down the source of a bug.

Written unit and UI tests

Built web services or APIs

Built frontend web applications using JavaScript, HTML, and CSS

Experience collaborating with a globally distributed team

Contributed to Wikipedia or other open projects

should be able to access that knowledge, free of interference. We host the Wikimedia projects, build software

experiences for reading, contributing, and sharing Wikimedia content, support the volunteer communities and

partners who make Wikimedia possible, and advocate for policies that enable Wikimedia and free knowledge to

thrive. The Wikimedia Foundation is a charitable, not-for-profit organization that relies on donations.
