Steamclock is looking for a bright, enthusiastic person here in Vancouver with experience shipping products on iOS. If you have a track record of shipping beautiful, high-quality apps, we’d love to chat!

Steamclock is a profitable and growing studio in Gastown that makes very nice mobile software. Our focus is shipping great products, and building the company we want to work at. We make products for ourselves – like our side-project game Two Spies – and apps for interesting companies like WealthBar, Mozilla, and Arc’teryx.

Like any small company, you’ll have the chance to wear many hats. In this role, though, we’re looking for somebody who can at times wear a leadership hat, and help develop our team as well as our apps. We value people over process, and your skills and perspective will help us bring that to the next level.

You’ll have the opportunity to work on:

  • Building nice iOS apps in Swift
  • Collaborating with teams of 2-5 people to ship multiple products a year
  • Technical decision-making and helping understand requirements
  • Solving tricky challenges and evaluating new tools
  • Providing constructive and empathetic feedback on pull requests, architecture, and technical approaches
  • Minimizing the need for meetings with proactive communication on Slack, Github, and elsewhere
  • Related apps in other languages, for example Kotlin, TypeScript, or Rails
  • Special projects like open source libraries, backend APIs, and product experiments
  • Iterating our skills and culture to build the best darn app development team in the world


  • Experience shipping native iOS apps
  • Empathy for your fellow teammates, clients, and users
  • The ability to work full time in Vancouver (we are all working remote currently, but at least for now we’re all Vancouver-based and we’re looking to hire locally)
  • Clear communication in various forms, whether it’s spoken, written, or

Ideally you would also have:

  • 4+ years of native mobile app development experience
  • Experience debugging interesting problems
  • Some experience in technical leadership, such as leading a product or a small dev team
  • Some background in either a startup environment or a client-services studio
  • Enthusiasm for building very nice customer-facing software
  • Some kind of bonus skill (Rails, React, Devops, knitting, etc.)


We started Steamclock to build a place we wanted to work at. Some of the benefits we provide include:

  • Extended health and dental
  • No overtime
  • Autonomy over your work
  • Enforced minimum vacations
  • Profit sharing
  • Meeting-free Wednesdays
  • Charitable donation matching
  • Home office budget
  • Flexible work hours
  • Parental leave
  • A culture of investing in people
