Mobile Infrastructure Software Engineer (iOS) (Remote)
Our Mobile Apps are built with State of the Art technologies (Swift, Kotlin, Buck) and require first class support to ensure our product and feature teams can continue to thrive and grow. This role lives at the boundaries of Mobile Engineering — it offers the opportunity to put a variety of skills to work: knowledge of mobile platforms, build systems, scripting, systems administration, CI + CD, native app frameworks and more. As time progresses, focus can shift from systems/build work to mobile-specific app framework development, so there’s plenty of opportunities for learning new skills and shaping new processes for mobile development at Dropbox.
- Maintain and shape build system deployment and architecture (Buck or Bazel)
- Build and maintain tools (Python/Ruby primarily) for managing both local developer experience and CI builds/deployment
- Identify new opportunities to enhance developer experience through building new tools and automation that make working with our projects more accessible + user-friendly for engineers
- Identify process improvements to keep our project up to date/state of the art and implement them
- Work deeply with other teams to simply/streamline touchpoints with shared Dropbox infrastructure + deploying new services
- BS (or higher, e.g., MS, or PhD) in Computer Science or related technical field involving coding (e.g., physics or mathematics), or equivalent technical experience
- 5+ years of professional software development experience
- Understanding of operation/administration CI/CD systems (ex. Buildkite, Circle CI, Jenkins, etc.)
- Engineering skills + experience with iOS Application Development (Swift + ObjC) with interest in deep-diving into platform build tools (Xcode/Buck/Bazel)
- Experience working across teams/org to accomplish long-range projects
- Understanding of either/both macOS/Linux system administration a plus
Many teams at Dropbox run Services with on-call rotations, which entails being available for calls during both core and non-core business hours. If a team has an on-call rotation, all engineers on the team are expected to participate in the rotation as part of their employment. Applicants are encouraged to ask for more details of the rotations to which the applicant is applying.
