Senior IOS Mobile Engineer

Job description

The mission of the mobile engineer is, simply put, to collect high-quality data with minimal use of CPU cycles, memory, and battery while respecting OS permission governance and user privacy. Therefore, it’s not classic app development, but rather optimizing background processing by leveraging low-level APIs. iOS mobile engineers are expected to have a solid understanding of how iOS governs the background processes, optimizing sensor reading, network I/O, and have a data-driven mindset.

  • Responsible for the implementation of the iOS build of the Sentiance SDK;
  • Technical analysis, develop a deep understanding of low level Mobile APIs (scheduler, sensor handling, power management, …);
  • Write technical documentation as part of the SDK documentation packs;
  • Participate in internal brainstorm sessions on SDK features;
  • Unit and regression testing, including test automation;
