About Tally

We're building an app that captures and saves sounds, especially human voices, to learn more about and connect to the people in our lives in a fun, game-like way. It's an app that saves people, and over time, our goal is to save everyone. We're looking for an experienced iOS developer to be the first mobile engineer on our team, and to design, build, and own the mobile app of Tally.

  • This will be a full-time position (or long-term contract, if you prefer). The position is fully remote, and we’re looking for someone located in UTC-8 (PST) to UTC+1 (CET) time zones.

What you’ll be doing:

Developing our iOS application using native technologies (Swift, UIKit, SwiftUI) and taking it from idea to shipped product Helping our founder and CEO shape Tally’s vision, product strategy, and feature set Working with our product designer to create a delightful and engaging user experience with animations, haptics, and sounds Working with our backend engineer to design the client-server architecture and API that ensures a fast and responsive app Owning and managing submissions to Apple's App Store 😬

About the offer:

Competitive salary Significant equity grant (befitting being one of our first team members) Flexible hours and calm company culture (we strive for focus and flow) Unlimited PTO, 10 paid holidays, and one week for winter vacation Medical, dental, and vision insurance (for full-time employees)
