The Company:

We’re a tech company that’s changing how people bank and think about their finances. We value empathy, curiosity, craft and efficacy. Our mission is to help people feel confident with their money. We do that by bringing humanity, elegance and ease to the consumer banking experience. And we make banking beautiful.

The Team:

Our mission is to help our customers feel confident with their money, and that starts with our engineers being confident in the software we build. Everything we write is designed for simplicity and maintainability. We take security very seriously.

We're a team who strongly believes in a culture of learning, and we're looking for engineers who share that view, and are as excited about writing code and trying out new technologies as they are about sharing their experiences and mentoring others.

You'll work most closely with your fellow engineers, across multiple domains (backend, frontend, android, etc) along with working closely with product and design to create the next generation of Simple.

About You:

You're an experienced engineer who loves to ship high-quality software, and one who does so by supporting the team around you. You've worked collaboratively in team environments where there are multiple features in flight. You’re able to mediate technical discussions, establish consensus on a team and drive adoption of best practices when things aren’t working as well as they should. To you, code review is an opportunity to collaborate, learn, and mentor. In your code, your focus is on quality, safety, stability, and correctness. Testing is a key part of your workflow, and you're always looking for ways to improve our confidence in software that we give to our customers. Most importantly, you're an engineer who is continuously learning and improving your craft.

What You’ll Do All Day:

Simple's mobile team is at the pinnacle of our app. As an iOS engineer at Simple you'll be on the frontlines, writing the code and helping our product and design teams to create modern, user-friendly, and beautiful banking for our customers. As a senior engineer some of the things you’ll be tackling include:

  • Contribute to the selection and adoption of modern best practices, including application architecture, testing philosophy and implementation, and forward-looking design for upcoming business problems.
  • Evaluate our tooling, propose improvements, and work with the team to implement and iterate.
  • Work directly with other teams, front and back end, and contribute to the APIs and standards that we develop when moving forward on our new products.
  • Reliably deliver high quality software on assigned projects. Provide and meet time and scope estimates, and work with others throughout the company to adjust when needed.
  • Effectively manage your own work and help coordinate work by other team members of those around you to support our commitment to product delivery.
  • Regularly check in with other mobile engineers about the progress of their work as it relates to your projects.
  • Manage trade-offs in scope, risk, and timelines in your own projects, and effectively communicate the decisions to the team and product/project management.
  • Help mediate team discussions on standards and architecture in a manner that results in consensus based on what is best for the success of our projects.
  • Proactively identify risks in project plans as they develop by watching issues and monitoring other engineers’ progress through our various communication channels.
  • Raise issues early and offer solutions, mitigation strategies, or workarounds so that the team can adapt.
  • Provide timely and thorough review of issues and pull requests.
  • Mentor others on the team and work to advance their own professional development, specifically with an emphasis on helping others adopt and follow good engineering practices.
  • Be available for consultation when other members of the team need assistance with an issue, and be prepared to help guide them through the development and implementation of a solution.

We’d Like To See:

  • 5-7 years strong experience with iOS, Objective-C and Swift
  • Experience with REST APIs and their use on mobile networks
  • Expertise with xcodebuild, CI/CD, XCTest and other test tooling
  • Strong communication skills, with an emphasis on empathy
  • Experience working on complex codebases in a team environment
  • Experience writing consistent, readable, developer-friendly code.


We recognize the dire lack of diversity in our industry, and we’re not okay with it. We actively seek to address it with our hiring and retention processes, as well as our office culture. If you’re on the fence about whether you’re a fit, we say go for it, and apply!

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?
