Job Description

Our mission is to redefine the home experience with tech and services to create a smarter, greener, safer home that saves our customers money every month.

Summary:

This is an amazing opportunity for someone to jump in as the Principal Engineer (IOS) to lead the mobile/app outcomes in our Devices & Infrastructure vertical working on cutting-edge SmartHome devices and software with world class features and experiences. The Devices & Infrastructure (D&I) vertical is primarily responsible for the core security experience a Vivint system delivers. As part of this ownership, the D&I vertical is responsible for the Vivint hub (core to the in-home security system and smart home device interactions), in-home display, security sensors, and devices that improve system connectivity/reliability within the home. The team seeks to innovate and re-imagine what core security looks like now and into the future.

We are seeking an expert iOS engineer who can help us lead the development and maintenance of the security experience for our customer-facing mobile applications powered by Vivint's Smart Home devices. We're a fast-paced and multi-functional team of skilled developers with a passion for innovation, delivering value, and solving hard problems. We deliver mobile application features that enable our customers to access and make use of their smart home, and the devices which power it, in new and exciting ways.

As a member of the D&I team, you will be responsible for adding new features to support enhanced security experience and as needed to complement the experience for new hardware products rolling out as well as improving the UI of all our existing features. As a more senior engineer you'll also be responsible for mentoring our other iOS engineers as the team grows, and will be responsible for working across engineering disciplines to help ensure we have the right system-wide architecture

Who You Are:
  • You are an engineer with commercial-grade mobile development experience. You work closely with your peers and teammates to build and maintain a flexible and extensible mobile architecture to support the current and future product roadmap. You mentor multiple more junior iOS engineers. You are familiar with the latest iOS/xcode tooling and capable of quickly digesting technical documentation. You are curious and embrace new ideas, product capabilities, and emerging technologies and look for ways to apply them to your work to level up your work, your team, and the business.
  • You take pride in delivering new and improved product features that deliver everyday value to the customer and the business. You write high-quality, readable, testable code. You are comfortable building a new feature from scratch or working with code someone developed in the past.
  • You tackle engineering work in an agile, iterative fashion. You are comfortable experimenting and iterating on those ideas based on user feedback, analytics, and other business learnings. You have excellent debugging skills and can narrow down problems efficiently, even when the codebase is large and complex. You have a bias towards action and take ownership of the codebase you work within. You work with a team that strives to be open-minded, curious, quick to learn, and capable of communicating effectively and delivering regularly.
  • Last, you are approachable, ambitious, commitment-focused, and want to be part of a high-performing team that values continuous improvement. You are fulfilled when you're helping those around you succeed and you welcome ideas and feedback.


Primary Responsibilities:
  • Collaborate with engineering, product, design and quality assurance team members as well as stakeholders from across the business to translate product vision into the ultimate Smart Home experience for Vivint customers

  • Build software experiments and funnels to assess and validate product and design approaches, and fine-tune based on analytics and other feedback mechanisms
  • Actively participate in the iOS guild with fellow engineers to develop better organization-wide development practices and solve hard problems
  • Participate in quarterly "Innovation Weeks" where all engineers explore technologies and ideas that may not be part of their daily work


Required Skills:
  • Swift and/or objective-c and xcode
  • RESTful services
  • Bug Tracking and Source control (JIRA, Git)
  • Common software architectural practices and principles (MVC, MVP, MVVM, Clean, SOLID)
