iOS Engineer - Payment Team - Full Remote in Europe at Heetch

Read before applying:

We're a young company iterating over our remote culture so for now, we're only working with people in locations where the time zone is: -3 hours > Paris time zone < +3 hours

Payment Team @Heetch
We work behind the scenes to ensure a smooth experience for everyone involved in payment transactions.
We are responsible for the proper handling of millions of euros across thousands of daily rides , and everyone is counting on us to deliver reliably and efficiently.
We work hand in hand with the Data, Product and Operations teams to improve our product while protecting our bankrolls and maintaining compliance and cleanliness in our accounting records:

  • Numbers, numbers everywhere.

  • We help users manage their payment methods and coupons, a crucial part of the passenger onboarding experience.

  • We make sure drivers get paid on time for their work by providing them with a seamless experience so they don’t have to worry about their money.

  • Fraudsters are like zombies, one breach, and you’ll face an army of them.

  • 1 cent can become over 9000 cents if you don’t pay attention.

iOS within Payment Team
As a mobile developer, your job will be to work on the interfaces, for example, to help passengers managing their payment methods/coupons or drivers understanding how much they earn on the platform. You want to make sure people can know what's going on with their money

Our team's values

  • Transparency: We discuss everything openly within the team. Our speak up culture is strong.

  • Remote first: Our team is fully distributed, and we work hard at that, but feel free to work from any of our offices in Paris, London, Brussels or Casablanca.

  • The courage to fail: We celebrate the wins, but more importantly we're not afraid to fail, we always learn and go again.

  • Team Unity: No one is left behind.

  • Code quality: It's not software without tests.

Does it sound like you?

  • You have more than 5 years of experience in iOS development.

  • You also have at least 2 years of experience in using Reactive programming.

  • You've already worked with Swift in Production.

  • You understand the iOS SDK and application lifecycle.

  • You've got knowledge in common architectural patterns.

  • You're skilled in UI using ConstraintLayout.

  • You're thorough when it comes to test coverage and other best practices.

  • If you have contributed to open source projects, it would be a plus.

  • If you know about managing the lifecycle of background services and their impact on battery usage, it would also be a bonus.

What will you do?

  • Work closely with Product, Backend and Data Analysts to build highly impactful features

  • Work in a release train cycle (we ship often )

  • Optimise performance and help solve technical and product problems for our large pool of Android drivers

  • Participate in Code Reviews and provide feedback to your colleagues

  • Have the freedom to experiment. Intrigued in a new tech or library? Go for it! let's see how it improves our app

  • Be a key member of the wider Android team at Heetch and contribute to core architecture and design discussions

  • Work on large cross-team projects

  • Routinely own and manage releases to the Play store

What are going to be your main challenges?
Our app is one, of the few mobile apps, running in the foreground for up to seven hours straight on drivers phones. This rather unique use case brings fun challenges with handling the lifecycle of the app.

  • Network and GPS management: We need to provide accurate information and price suggestions to our community. This means making sure every driver gets important notifications in any network conditions, providing GPS location as accurate as possible for the pricing and tracking.

  • UI & UX: Ride-sharing apps are a really special case in app design. They all revolve around a map and the conventional navigation patterns like list view and navigation controls need heavy tweaking to make for great user experience.

  • One way data flow and functional pattern: We are passionate about software architecture. We've built the core of our apps using Rx and want to push this forward in both the data and the UI layers. Ideally, our team will grow big enough to be able to push forward what mobile programming means and we'll contribute back to all those amazing open source projects we learned from.

What's next? 

If your application is selected, the process will be composed of 4 steps:

  1. Non-technical interview with the Engineering Manager of your potential team (1h30)

  2. Take home assignment (~5 days deadline)

  3. Interview with your future teammates (1h)

  4. Day on site (Paris) to meet your future stakeholders
