Job Description:

The New York Times is seeking an Associate iOS Engineer to play an integral role on the Games development team in making our digital puzzle experience second to none for our solvers.

Who we are

Through Cooking and Games, the New Products & Ventures organization focuses on finding, building and growing new businesses that are complementary to the mission of The New York Times. The group focuses on building products through user-centered design, and is composed of tightly knit, interdependent representatives from product and project management, development and design.

The Games team is made up of small, focused groups tasked with building great puzzle experiences on a variety of devices and platforms, including web, iOS, Android and on paper. We're excited to be expanding our lineup of puzzles and games while continuing to improve our flagship Crossword app.

To be successful in this role, you must:

  • Have a technical background, with an understanding of, or willingness to learn, common iOS design patterns, memory management, and multi-threading

  • Have hands-on experience with Swift

  • Be willing to participate in strategic technical discussions

  • Be willing to learn our source control, development, and deployment systems

  • Able to write organized and testable code that is easy to comprehend and extend

  • Enjoy making iterative improvements to both the products you work on and the processes used to build them

Other requirements and responsibilities include:

  • Closely collaborating with product and design as part of the development process

  • Influencing the design process with ever-changing capabilities of the iOS platform

  • Pair programming and in-depth code reviews

It would be great, but not required, if you also have a passion or enthusiasm for puzzles and/or games.

If this sounds like you, we look forward to your rsum! Please include a few lines about what makes you the right person for the job through our application process.

The New York Times is committed to a diverse and inclusive workforce, one that reflects the varied global community we serve. Our journalism and the products we build in the service of that journalism greatly benefit from a range of perspectives, which can only come from diversity of all types, across our ranks, at all levels of the organization. Achieving true diversity and inclusion is the right thing to do. It is also the smart thing for our business. So we strongly encourage women, veterans, people with disabilities, people of color and gender nonconforming candidates to apply.
