    Description

    HiNative is the Q&A app for language learners available on iOS, Android, and the Web.

    The iOS app was originally built with Objective-C, but we're currently moving over to Swift. The ratio is about 1:1 right now.

    We're looking for someone to help take care of development on the iOS app, in particular, converting legacy Objective-C code to Swift and adding in new features. We use ReactiveCocoa (FRP), Swinject (DI Container), and Swiftz. The app is built on the VIPER architecture.

    Requirements

    • 2 - 3 years of iOS development experience • Proficiency with Swift, Objective-C, and the iOS SDK • Experience with client-server based development • Currently (or soon to be) located in Tokyo • Interested in language learning and passionate about making it easier for people to learn about languages and cultures
