iOS Developer

Vancouver & Remote • Pacific Time
Updated May 28, 2021

Steamclock is looking for a bright, enthusiastic person here in Canada with experience shipping products on iOS. If you love shipping beautiful, high-quality apps, we’d love to chat!

Steamclock is a profitable and growing studio in Gastown that makes very nice mobile software. Our focus is shipping great products, and building the company we want to work at. We make products for ourselves – like our side-project game Two Spies – and apps for interesting companies like WealthBar, Mozilla, and Arc’teryx.

We support remote work, though we’re looking for folks eligible to work in Canada who would like to work on Pacific time. When our office in Vancouver reopens, folks will have the option of working here some days of the week, or working remotely and coming together as a team in Vancouver a couple times a year.

Like any small company, you’ll have the chance to wear many hats. We value people over process, and your skills and perspective will help us bring that to the next level.
