Who we are
Tread is an early stage startup for capturing and sharing all the unique and cool experiences you're out having, and our growing userbase seems to like what we're doing. We're looking for a Mobile Software Developer to help take our app to the next level.
What we’ve got
Our app is iOS only, and we're live in the app store. It's written in Objective-C, though we're looking forward to spending some time with Swift in the coming months. The app hooks into a RESTful API that's powered by Ruby on Rails. We'll be building a version for Android in the future, but it's not our focus just yet. We’ve got a number of interesting challenges coming up, many of which involve iterating on our UX and performance tuning. We want to make sure our users have the best experience we can build.
What we need
We’re looking for a talented software developer who loves their work and specializes in building efficient and beautiful mobile experiences. We'd like this person to be able to demonstrate a track-record of successfully developing for iOS in the past, and to be interested in growing to tackle other platforms like Android in the not-to-distant future.
What we want
We want to find someone who naturally prefers to work on a small team, someone who can excel in a distributed, remote environment and who's equipped with the communication skills to do so. We're looking for someone who smiles when they show us the things they’ve built and who shares our love of making happy users with technology. We built Tread because we love showing the world all the places we're going and seeing what our friends are up to -- we're users! We'd love it if those sorts of things make you excited too.
What we offer
A competitive salary, a remote environment, and the unique opportunity to work at the intersection of the lifestyle and technology spaces. By joining our small team, you're going to have a huge impact on our product and our company culture. To make sure both of us get it right, we're offering a three month contract-to-hire position with a competitive salary and future stock options to the candidate that has the skills and personality that will help us make Tread the best it can be.
