  • Owning, advocating, and championing for performance within Rewind

What will help you be successful 👏

  • In-depth knowledge of tools and techniques for analyzing application performance
  • Experience in a fast-pace engineering organization
  • Experience with Swift/Xcode/Apple

Internally we aren't fixated on titles & levels since that can lead to needless hierarchy that distracts from the team's collective success. We recognize that not all companies operate that way so we say "Senior / Staff / Principal" to indicate we want people with substantial amounts of experience.

If you're interested in this job, we strongly encourage you to apply: we'd love to see you on our team working toward our audacious vision of giving humans perfect memory.
