Senior Creative Developer, iOS Apps
Gandalf has a staff, the Green Lantern a ring – we’re looking for someone who wields Objective-C with the same finesse & imagination. If you’re someone who looks at iOS and thinks that we haven’t begun to scratch the surface of what mobile devices can do, and you have proven that exact point by building cutting-edge apps, our Creative Development team wants you.
Modea is a young but growing digital agency. Just check INC Magazine’s list of the fastest growing privately owned companies (we’re on it) and Ad Age’s Small Agency Awards (we’re the agency of the year for Best Culture). But our growth and recognition hasn’t happened by accident. It’s the result of attracting and employing the industry’s most talented writers, developers, designers and thinkers. And that’s where you come in.
As a Senior Creative Developer, you’ll be a key part of our Creative Development team using your Objective-C, Cocoa, and iOS expertise to create detailed, elegant, and engaging interactive applications on Apple’s mobile platforms. We want someone who is a weathered Objective-C programmer and knows Apple’s platform like the back of their hand. No lightweights here; you should know cutting edge techniques and be able to set new standards.
In short, we’re looking for a mobile rock star.
