iOS Developer
at ForeFlight

ForeFlight is looking for an iOS developer to join our team. This position is for a unique and technically well-rounded individual with experience building and shipping iOS apps. This person will help us create the next generation of ForeFlight Mobile on the iPad and iPhone.


Technically, this person is experienced in Objective-C and Cocoa development, with a track record of shipping exquisitely-designed apps. This person has a solid understanding of UIKit, database design with SQLite/Core Data, communicating with web services, and memory management with and without ARC. This person can hit the ground running on iOS 8 technologies, writing rock-solid code with blocks, GCD, Swift, and Auto Layout. This person is naturally curious, exploring new technologies in order to stay current, but balances the use of new and old to ensure that execution is priority.


Professionally, this person is driven to execute, deliver, and complete projects independently, seeking advice and direction from team members when needed, and plowing ahead to completion when the path forward is clear. This person will be able to point to specific examples that highlight the individuals ability to meet the objectives outlined above, and references will confirm this person’s unique abilities.


This position is based in our Houston, TX office. A pilot-coder, or individual looking to pursue his or her private pilot license, is a plus. Benefits include medical insurance, 401(k) with matching, and flight training reimbursement.
