You'll be responsible for building core, simple yet elegant features that are used by our iOS apps from users around the world, improving performance, and for architecting solutions that underpin the product at scale.  

As a member of the Discovery team, you will define how Skillshare users can find the best learning content that our subscription service has to offer. Alongside our company’s key strategies, you will bring our consumer experience to life on our apps. 

You’ll be joining a team that’s passionate about technology, building products that we’re proud of, and upholding a strong, collaborative team culture. We're excited to meet you.

  • Build core features, like home and search, to shape our fast-growing product

  • Architect simple solutions to complex challenges

  • Collaborate with the product and design team to define the vision for content discovery on Skillshare

Why We're Excited About You:

  • 4+ years experience building user-facing and production-level apps

  • Pro knowledge of the iOS development environment, including both Swift and Objective-C

  • Passion and talent for building great user experiences

  • Start-up experience is a bonus

Why you’re excited about us:

  • Impact: The mobile team ideates and iterates quickly with everyone on the team feeling empowered with ownership of the apps.

  • Growth: You’ll have the opportunity to wear a lot of hats and take on more responsibility over time.

  • Our team: We have a passionate, talented team that is a lot of fun to work with.

  • Our mission: We’re doing work that matters – connecting lifelong learners around the world and empowering them to pursue their creativity.

  • Flexibility: We believe that doing your best work means living a full life. That means different things for everyone, so we optimize for trust, invest to support remote teams, have an unlimited vacation policy (with a required minimum!), and encourage work-life balance.
