iOS Engineer (m/f) // COUP

March 29, 2018

About COUP

At COUP, we run a fleet of modern eScooters in major cities across Europe — Berlin, Paris and Madrid (starting this summer) — with the goal of making our cities cleaner, quieter, easier to get around. And of course more fun! As a subsidiary of Robert Bosch GmbH, we benefit from the support of a large company with an international vision while maintaining the atmosphere and vitality of a start-up.

This position is based in our Berlin office, where we have a cross-disciplinary team working on design, product, fleet operations, finance, as well as technology – hardware, backend, mobile and web development. We’re looking for a talented and motivated iOS Engineer with a deep understanding of the iOS landscape and an interest in helping to shape the future of shared mobility around the world.

The iOS team builds the user-facing Rider application used by thousands of riders in Berlin and Paris. We are also building an SDK to encapsulate the core of our services and building a suite of tools to support the operations team. Our work spans the gamut from crafting pixel-perfect views and animations to architecting our applications and frameworks for future extensibility. We collaborate closely with the design and product teams (as well as with our scooter manufacturer, Gogoro, and colleagues from our parent company), so strong communication abilities are valued.
In code, we express ourselves with Swift, but we value experience developing on the Apple platform and an open mind to learning new things over fluency in a particular technology or language. We’re looking for someone who is able to dive into a new area of the platform, ramp up quickly, take ownership and deliver high-quality code.
If you possess some or all of the following technical skills, this position might be a good fit for you:

  • demonstrated experience shipping high quality mobile products
  • excellent knowledge of modern software engineering best practices
  • intimate knowledge of iOS frameworks (e.g., UIKit, networking, GCD, etc.)
  • exposure to or a desire to learn about Bluetooth-related topics
  • experience with performance profiling & optimization using Instruments
  • ability to write clean, well factored UI code
  • passion for quality and attention to detail
  • English language proficiency

We are striving to create a supportive and diverse culture with open communication and an emphasis on craftsmanship. If you are interested in learning more, please reach out to us at In a brief cover letter, please provide us with a link to either your GitHub profile, any apps that you’ve helped ship to the AppStore or a portfolio of your past work.
