80/hr iOS Developer w/ OOP background. 12+ Months. Contract. Seattle, WA. (L-3734) (B)


Are you an iOS senior developer (6+ years)?  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 (Objective C being the primary skill) 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 by airline pilots, mechanics, and crew (flight plans, etc.) and are used on a variety of devices (handheld, tablets, etc.).  As the apps are NOT standalone candidates with depth in Java, or similar, is key.  Another big plus is if the candidate also has (in addition to iOS depth) a background in delivery based on continuous integration and automated builds.

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

    07/09/20 13:29 PM . Tim Bauer. Hold here. Waiting for call w/ client VMS to understand if they still need more options (last we heard they were targeting last Monday for shortlisting).

    07/02/20 12:31 PM . Tim Bauer. Status changed to WFF

    07/02/20 12:31 PM . Tim Bauer. Client shortlisted yesterday so put this on hold and wait to see if they ask for more options.

    06/27/20 21:49 PM . Tim Bauer. Shared candidate to agent for review.

    06/24/20 21:15 PM . Tim Bauer. Agent clarifies skill focus is Objective C (vs iOS) and Java could be substituted for another OO language (like .NET, etc.). Open to relocation candidates IF they have reason for relo outside of gig (friends/family in area, prior work in area, etc.)

    06/22/20 14:45 PM . Tim Bauer. Rate up to 81 (from 71) based on commentary from agent that last hire/offer in this role was at this price point (so the budget is there to go that high IF the candidate is a great fit).

    06/18/20 17:49 PM . Tim Bauer. Update lead to remove C# as an option (versus Java). Now focus is iOS + Java that is local.

    06/18/20 13:30 PM . Tim Bauer. Seems to be still going. One candidate was interviewed in last week. We'll have to see if that one if going further.

    06/11/20 15:51 PM . Tim Bauer. Update lead to reflect that only currently local candidates (to Seattle) can be considered.
