About Loom
Loom is on a mission to empower everyone at work to communicate more effectively, wherever they are. We are already trusted by over 9M users across 120k+ companies. Our customers are global and use Loom at work at world-class companies including HubSpot, Square, Uber, GrubHub, and LinkedIn.

Founded in 2015, Loom has raised $73 million from top-tier investors including Sequoia Capital, Kleiner Perkins, Coatue, the Slack Fund, and the founders of Instagram, Figma, and Front.

The Role
You'll be joining at a crucial time in our mobile team's history, helping transition the mobile product from an experiment to a core component of every loom user's experience. As an early member of our mobile team, you will define best practices, architect robust code, and lay the foundations for our product for years to come. You will be part of a small team delivering massive value and work on everything from UI to low-level video and everything in-between.

The Stack
The iOS app is built using Swift, UIKit, AVFoundation APIs, and our own custom encoding layer. We're always evolving, and have begun to integrate SwiftUI and Combine too! The application communicates with Loom's infrastructure entirely via GraphQL.

Your Responsibilities:

    • Work closely with our design team to create best-in-class video recording and playback experiences
    • Independently own implementation of end-to-end improvements to our already-magical user experience
    • Investigate reliability and performance of our video capture pipeline to increase recording success rates
    • Establish and document best practices and design patterns while implementing new features using SwiftUI

Your Success at Loom:

    • 1 month: You have familiarized yourself with subsets of our iOS codebase and shipped your first bug fix and small feature to production.
    • 3 months: You are deeply familiar with our UI and networking architecture. You have begun to understand where it can be improved and pushed for these improvements while shipping new work.
    • 6 months: You have worked across most, if not all, systems within our app. Everything from debugging video pipeline issues to improving our GraphQL services. You have seamlessly integrated into, and helped improve, our existing team processes to ship with velocity 🚀

What We're Looking For:

    • 3+ years experience building native iOS applications
    • Fluency in Swift. Objective-C experience is a plus
    • Passion for UI fluidity and performance
    • Curiosity, and a constant desire to learn and improve
    • Deep AVFoundation Experience is a plus
    • SwiftUI & Combine Experience is a plus
Perks at Loom:
* Competitive compensation and equity package

* Flexible Spending Account (FSA) and Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account (DCFSA)
* Healthcare reimbursement (for International employees) 
* Life, AD&D, Short and Long Term Disability Insurance
* 401(k) with 4% company matching
* Professional development reimbursement
* Mental health and wellness reimbursement
* Gym reimbursement
* Unlimited PTO 
* Paid parental leave
