Are you our missing piece?

Saving singles from superficial dating and Mashable’s ‘#1 alternative to Tinder’, Jigsaw is the dating app that prioritises your personality. By revealing faces behind a puzzle, over 100,000 members (and counting) have connected based on more than just their looks, creating relationships that last beyond the honeymoon phase. Our tech-for-good platform aims to be one of the strongest lifestyle brands on the App Store, underpinned by a social media presence that makes daters across the U.S love Jigsaw puzzles more than they ever thought possible. As a Junior Software Engineer, you’ll be at the cutting edge of Jigsaw’s evolution, building features to bridge the gap between the online and offline dating experience for those seeking a less superficial way to date.

BUILD THE ULTIMATE PORTFOLIO APP Most Swift tutorials help you solve one specific problem, but in my Ultimate Portfolio App series I show you how to get all the best practices into a single app: architecture, testing, performance, accessibility, localization, project organization, and so much more, all while building a SwiftUI app that works on iOS, macOS and watchOS.
