We are looking to add a new member to the NYTimes mobile team to help bring our award-winning media to new platforms and technologies. As a software engineer on the iOS team responsible for our native, Objective-C iPhone and iPad apps, you’ll be responsible for pushing the envelope of technical innovation within our mobile products, and take a leading role in helping to shape the future of The New York Times. Be a part of the same team that was onstage at the Apple iPad product announcement keynote, blazing a trail within the mobile media ecosystem.
We are looking for engineers who take pride in writing reusable code with an emphasis on quality over quantity. The ideal candidate will be innovative — interested in applying new techniques and design patterns, but also fluent in current best practices and standards. We embrace the best open source, commercial and custom built software to help our development teams flourish.
As a part of our iOS team, you will enjoy a vibrant culture that promoted innovation nestled within an established and respected institution. Inside our new midtown building, you will find floor-to-ceiling windows, plenty of whiteboards, a sushi chef and a staff with a sense of humor and a passion for beautiful software.
