iOS developer

Job description

Felyx is expanding! The coming years we are facing hyper-growth in The Netherlands and the rest of Europe. Therefore, we are looking for an ambitious iOS Developer to make our iOS app the best it can be!

As urbanization is rising and air quality is deteriorating, we feel the need to make our cities greener and healthier by offering a sustainable mobility solution. And being a fun way around town is, of course, a great bonus! At felyx, everybody is contributing to a cleaner city within their own expertise by making this swift door-to-door transportation the new status quo. We are working together as an ambitious team of entrepreneurs, creatives, operators and engineers, and are looking to grow as we scale the business throughout Europe.

Here's the challenge

You will own the iOS app and build it out to provide a great customer experience for all of our users. Together with the rest of the mobile development team, consisting of iOS and Android engineers, QA, Product Design, Scrum Master and a PO, you will come up with new data-driven ways to make felyx more successful and serve our customers better.

Existing iOS development experience is a must for this position, but we also care about general engineering skills. Our ideal candidate has a few years of experience developing iOS apps. Striving to develop high-quality, maintainable software is important for us, as is being familiar with fundamental software engineering best practices to ensure the quality of our product. You will be part of our engineering team, which consists of 9 team members. You will work with our back-end engineers and data scientists to implement new features in the app as they become available. You can describe us as passionate, playful, hands-on and entrepreneurial. Do you share our DNA? Great! Join our ride!


We get truly excited if you

  • Have at least 3 years of experience in designing and building high quality iOS apps with user experience and maintainability in mind
  • Have a deep understanding of Swift and the iOS devices landscape
  • Are uncomfortable shipping code with a low test coverage!
  • Have experience with various forms of automated testing (unit, functional, integration, UI tests)
  • Are experienced integrating and working with REST or GraphQL APIs
  • Know your way around Git, Xcode, CI & CD tools
  • Have strong abstract reasoning skills and an agile and pragmatic mindset
  • Have excellent communication skills and are fluent in English
  • Are living in the Netherlands

Bonus points if you

  • Have experience creating mobile apps for other platforms (Android), professionally or as a hobby project
  • Have experience in writing software for other parts of the stack, e.g. back-end or front-end
  • Have a BS/MS degree in Computer Science or a related field
  • Have one or more apps currently published in the Apple App Store
  • Have great understanding of reactive Programming
  • SwiftUI
  • Knowledge about serval architectural concepts

What's in it for me?

An ambitious team of entrepreneurial colleagues with a shared passion for our mission. You will work in a transparent, fast-growing and inspirational environment in which you are able to take the lead over your own career and will get challenged on a daily basis! And next to that:

  • 29 paid days off on fulltime base: 28 on the roll and a day off on your birthday!
  • You will get free felyx minutes.
  • We want to invest in your future: a good pension plan is therefore in place (1/3 employee, 2/3 employer).
  • We offer 6 weeks of paternity leave with 100% salary for all (upcoming) dads.
  • We take your development seriously and encourage you to grow with the company and within your role.
  • Once we are able to go back to the office (hopefully soon!), we offer a tasty and healthy lunch.

Last but not least: fun, freedom and trust! We're not scared to work our butts off, but this is only possible once we all experience joy in the work that we do every day.

We are very proud of the fact that we have been named by LinkedIn as a top start-up to work at for the second time in a row, together with many other prestigious awards we’ve received since our start in 2017. We are operational in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Groningen, Haarlem, Eindhoven, Den Bosch, Zwolle, Enschede, Brussels, Berlin, Hamburg, Düsseldorf, Aachen (and more) and will be launching many more European cities in 2022. We have a strong focus on scaling up internationally.

At felyx we believe that the best workplace is one that represents the world we live in today. This means we believe that diversity in the broadest sense of the word connects us and drives us forward as a company.

We believe that diversity goes hand in hand with different perspectives. It is these different perspectives that can help us become better and more innovative in finding solutions for our customers.

And because we believe this can be achieved, we are looking for colleagues who are intrinsically motivated and bring the right experience. Gender, age, sexual orientation or origin will never be a factor and will never become one.

We understand you might not tick all the boxes above. The truth is, we don't either. If you feel up for the ride, we encourage you to apply now!
