Full-Time Job: iOS Developer, New York, NY (SeatGeek)


Job Title: iOS Developer

Job location: New York, NY

Employer: SeatGeek

Employment Type: Full-Time Job

Job Description

iOS Developer | Responsibilities:

  • Help define mobile for an entire industry. Ticketing now is where photo sharing was when iOS 3 was released.
  • Lead the evolution of the SeatGeek app from a feature-poor quasi-MVP to the most popular ticketing app in the App Store
  • Hit the ground running and immediately start building new features in the app
  • Define the long-term architectural plan for the app; re-write parts of existing codebase for maintainability
  • Work with the SeatGeek design folks (me…sorry, this job has its downsides) to build new UI components

iOS Developer | Requirements:

  • 1+ years of experience building iPhone apps (our prototypical candidate would have at least 2-3 years, but we don’t want to exclude talented people with a bit less)
  • Someone who has developed beautiful, useful apps that are live in the App Store
  • An engineer who’s comfortable handling plenty of responsibilty and can see a project to completion with minimal help and intervention
  • Someone who cares about building something that’s used and loved by many. Someone who cares about details–we’ve noticed the best iOS developers are as obsessed with pixels as they are with view controllers and NSSortDescriptors (Eric’s favorite discovery while working on the app).


  • A competitive base salary and equity stake in a well-funded early stage company
  • A culture where the product is king
  • $100 per month to spend on tickets to live events
  • A laid-back, fun workplace with an endless supply of snacks/coffee/beer, frequent team lunches, and social jaunts organized by Eric Waller, our official Social Chair
  • The opportunity to write code that is used outside of SeatGeek, e.g. we’ve opensourced our job system, DJJob, our Redis-backed autocompleting service, Soulmate, and our Python string matching library, FuzzyWuzzy
  • A superb benefits package, including full health/dental/vision
  • Hackathons: scheduled times when everyone drops what they’re doing and builds cool stuff in small groups
