Lead Mobile Developer

Vancouver, BC • February 14, 2020

Steamclock is looking for a bright, enthusiastic person here in Vancouver with experience shipping products on iOS or Android. If you have a track record of shipping beautiful, high-quality apps, we’d love to meet you!

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 – such as a neat Mac utility for tracking issues and pull requests – and apps for interesting companies like Arc’teryx, WealthBar, and Mozilla.

Like any small company, you’ll have the chance to wear many hats, but in this role we’re looking for somebody who can wear a technical leadership hat, and help develop our team as well as our apps. We value people over process, and your skills and perspective will help us bring that to the next level.
