iHeartRadio, iHeartMedia’s digital radio platform, is the No. 1 all-in-one digital audio service with over 800 million downloads; it reached its first 20 million registered users faster than any digital service in Internet history and reached 80 million users faster than any other radio or digital music service and even faster than Facebook. The company’s operations include radio broadcasting, online, mobile, digital and social media, live concerts and events, syndication, music research services and independent media representation.
The team is seeking a talented mobile engineer to join our world class iOS engineering team. Ideally, you are already experienced in iOS and have seen things, and still get goosebumps when you are reminded of them. You feel right at home within a tight knit, fast moving Agile team alongside your engineering colleagues, product manager and test engineers and care about good coding.
In this role, expect to build key features on the main iHeartRadio iOS platform and work to improve many others. You will also help improve performance, update analytics processing, hunt down bugs, and construct additional pylons. Expect to write unit tests, and ideally you know about continuous integration and enjoy pull request code review dialogue! Maybe you have worked in a vertical team before with full stack engineers and tried your hand at writing the server side APIs on a project as well? If you have ever been kept up all night, at least once, racking your brain on how to fix a bad bug or improve app performance, this might be the role for you! Minimum Bronze League Experience.
