    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.
