71/hr iOS Developer w/ Java, and/or Cloud. 12+ Months. Contract. Seattle, WA. (L-3649) (A)


Are you an iOS senior developer?  Currently local to the Seattle, WA market?  Looking for a long term (12+ month) contract?  Then this contract might be of interest to you.

In short, our agent (a global consultancy) has a need for an iOS senior developer for their end client.  The role is expected to continue for some time (i.e. 12+ months).  Focus is on developing iOS apps that are used in the commercial aviation industry to streamline flight deck workflows with centralized access to the pilots' most relevant electronic flight bag tools and data communication through aircraft connectivity. As the apps do NOT function standalone candidates with depth in C#, Java, and/or cloud is key as well. 

So, if this sounds like you, APPLY TODAY!!!
