Lead iOS Developer


This is a Full-time position in Los Angeles, CA posted May 2, 2021.

We have an opportunity for a Lead iOS Developer to join our team at Chani Nicholas Incorporated to help sustain and build our next chapter.

About Us 

Chani Nicholas Incorporated was founded by Chani Nicholas, a Los Angeles-based, Webby award-winning, NY Times-bestselling author and astrologer.

We are a queer, feminist-led tech and media company on a mission to make astrology, and its wisdom, accessible to everyone as a tool for self-discovery, mindfulness, and healing.

The Job

You eschew the “brogrammer” culture in favor of a forward-thinking and collaborative environment where technology is there to serve the needs of your users.

You are a team player who can also work independently without a lot of direction, effectively taking requests from marketing, design, and other leadership and turning them into functional and beautiful production ready app features.

You are a dedicated software craftsperson and product lead who cares deeply about best practices and what it takes to write and maintain great code and push forward with innovative concepts.

You have high emotional intelligence, an abundance mindset, able to effectively balance the needs of the creative and technical.

You will develop new features and be responsible for building and updating iOS compatible applications and systems, finding and squashing bugs, and maintaining a clean and elegant codebase.

You do not have to be an astrologer or familiar with astrology right now to apply – but you should be willing & able to learn the language of astrology so that your engineering reflects astrology’s logic.

Technical Skills Required 

3 – 5+ years of experience developing and deploying high quality applications for iOS on the App Store

Knowledge of Apple’s development platforms & frameworks (UIKit, Cocoa Touch, Cocoa, CoreFoundation)

Fluency with essential tools (Xcode, Instruments)

Extensive knowledge of object-oriented programming, multi-threading, and MVC

Experience working with RESTful APIs and full-stack solutions

Excellent problem solving and debugging skills

A drive to learn and master new technologies and techniques

Strong understanding of data structures & algorithms

Strong written and verbal communication skills

Experience in the Swift and Cocoa framework


Experience with other mobile platforms, Android development, React Native, TDD and agile development

Experience implementing and maintaining containers (Docker)

The Interview Process
