Senior iOS Developer (Swift)

Job description

Are you a clean code advocate and take pride in your work? And do you want to see your work held in the hands of hundreds of thousands of end users? Then read on, because maybe you will become our Senior iOS Developer in our new mobile team.

Who are we?

We are Safened – an award-winning and fast-growing FinTech scale-up, motivated by a vision to turn financial risk and regulatory challenges into simple and secure solutions. Simple, because we reduce complexity and offer easy-to-integrate solutions to financial institutions and platform businesses. Secure, because we enable our partners to use the world's most stable asset classes while protecting them from fraud, risk and identity theft.


That sounds like quite a mouthful, but don’t worry: We’re happy to explain it in more detail down the line. For now, just rest assured that we do cool stuff and it’s going really well. And we operate globally, with offices in London, New York, Amsterdam, and Barcelona. To get a feeling for the atmosphere here, you can check out this video:


Your mission at Safened

While we are innovating banking solutions, your mission after joining our team is to make sure our code is elegant, well-documented, and secure:

  • You write well-tested and easily maintainable code independently
  • You work with our product owners to implement new features...
  • ...and improve the quality of what’s there already (Goal: Get rid of the Objective-C leftovers)
  • With your eye for detail, you document everything you do with diligence
  • In the newly established mobile team, you collaborate effectively in code reviews and general discussions, offering your personal perspective and learning from others ideas
  • You truly own your tasks, adapt to changing requirements, and you think strategically about code

You will be working on our SDK which is part of our Know-Your-Customer (KYC) solution for digital onboarding. Our clients already include leading names in global finance and we are growing rapidly: The number of users in touch with the code you will work on is in the hundreds of thousands (and likely even millions) within the next year alone.


The Must-Haves (Definite Requirements):

  • You got 5+ years of professional experience with iOS development on your belt (or more)
  • You know your way around both Swift and Objective-C
  • You obviously know Xcode (...a no-brainer, we hope!)
  • You have experience with unit testing
  • You have good communication skills in English
  • You already live in Amsterdam or within commuting distance

Extra points (The Nice-To-Haves):

  • You worked on libraries/frameworks before
  • You are security-minded and were involved with apps for banking or similar
  • You maybe even did some pen testing before
  • You have some Dutch or Spanish language skills like most of us ;-)

What you get from us:

At Safened, we care about attracting and retaining excellent people. That's why we offer...

  • A very competitive salary and pension in place

  • 25 days of vacation to recharge your batteries

  • A workplace in our beautiful new office right next to the beautiful Vondelpark in Amsterdam

  • Daily catered, fresh and tasty lunch with your colleagues

  • The option to travel to our Barcelona office from time to time

  • Afterwork drinks in our very own bar on Fridays
