iOS developer for purpose driven impact company - wanna make a difference?

Founded in 2014, Donkey Republic is a purpose-driven impact business active in the micro-mobility industry. Donkey Republic provides a flexible, affordable and more sustainable way of transportation to the citizens by partnering with the cities.

Donkey Republic is a service and data driven technology company facilitating bike sharing, and we are able to provide cities a reliable, responsible and solution. Sustainable at its core the service integrates with the city’s public transportation system and facilitates both first and last mile steps on a multimodal journey. Our Donkey Riders are able to enjoy a convenient, affordable and high quality ride designed for durability by an inhouse team of dedicated specialists. We strive for optimal maintenance of our fleet through our servicing software platform and a great user experience for the end-user through our mobile apps. This collaborative dedicated software solution together with our bikes, seeks to improve people's health & well-being, reducing carbon emissions, reducing traffic congestion across cities as well as public space optimisation.


We are looking for an experienced iOS developer

Our native iOS and Android apps represent our most important customer touchpoints, and we work hard to create the best user experience. We expect you to be driven by the wish to give our riders a great experience. This involves understanding the rider's needs which you will work closely with our designer, PO, and developer to accomplish. You should be curious about new technologies and we expect you to be quick to adapt to new ways of doing things, but you should also have the ability to understand when a new technology isn’t a good investment in terms of helping our riders. At Donkey Republic you will not only work with making great UX/UI and service design, but you will also work with actual hardware. So if you are up for these challenges, Donkey Republic is the place for you.


What your job will be

You will team up with our skilled product team which consists of one more iOS developer, two Android developers, two backend developers, a full stack developer, a Product Owner, a UX Designer and a UX student worker. We work closely together in the group to ship features fast, but each developer has a high degree of freedom in bringing their own solutions to the table. You and the lead iOS developer are solely responsible for bringing the iOS app to the market and ensuring high quality through code reviews and good testing. You will implement features, bug fixes and participate in design workshops on equal foot with the rest of the group.


Who you are

We expect you to have at least a few years of experience. You should be self-driven enough to take responsibility for the app, while also caring about the overall performance of the team. You should:

  • Have experience with developing apps integrated with a backend through a RESTful API.

  • Have a good knowledge of basic design patterns.

  • Have experience with source control, preferably Git.

  • Have experience with composable architecture.

  • Have experience with SwiftUI.

  • Have experience with writing unit/integration tests.


Bonus points for:

  • Experience with more advanced concepts like reactive programming (e.g. RxSwift).

  • Experience with Bluetooth Low Energy.

  • Experience with continuous integration tools.

  • Experience with screenshot testing.

  • Having worked in a startup before.

  • Loving bikes - we surely do!


At the end of the day, we will pick you because you can prove to have brought apps to the market, enjoy testing things out, and are willing to risk that it might fail, prioritize teamwork over individual performance, and connect with the mission that we are on.


What we offer

  • A spot in the team of an inspiring startup, currently growing at a rapid pace.

  • A job where achieving our vision is as important as creating a bright future for each team member.


We enjoy mindful risk-taking, experimenting with features, getting things done fast, and seeing the results of our daily work out there in the real world, where we ultimately help people move easier and explore better - on two wheels. We also offer a flexible work schedule, a collective of people that have lots of fun together, and a really cool office in central Copenhagen. Please note that there also is an opportunity to work remotely with bi-monthly team visits to the headquarters.
