About the Role

We’re looking for iOS Engineers to join either of these cross-functional teams:

Investment - As part of the Investment team, you will design and develop Investment features within our iOS app using Swift. You will write tests, integrate with our in-house design system, and fetch data through our backend API. Help us achieve our vision to make investing delightfully easy and understandable for our clients and prospective clients!

Growth - As part of the Growth team, you will build A/B testable features to grow product adoption among existing clients and to attract new clients. The team uses short projects and fast iteration to gather insights across the entire suite of Wealthfront products, which we use to form new hypotheses. The team is highly responsive to new insights and product launches and moves quickly to address high-leverage opportunities.

As a core member of the team, you will:

  • Build a world-class, 4.8 star rated, native iOS application using UIKit and programmatic layouts. We also support only the most recent 2 iOS versions (iOS 14 and 15), so engineers can use the latest and greatest APIs. Best of all, our codebase is 76% Swift and all new code is written in Swift.
  • Write unit tests, UI tests, and integration tests against our integration server to validate functionality and provide confidence when making changes.
  • Benefit from a guided onboarding experience so you can quickly get up to speed with our codebase.
  • Use and update our in-house design system components to accelerate UI development.
  • Work closely with other platform engineers, designers, and product managers to ship delightful features.

This role could be a fit if you have:

  • 1+ years of professional iOS development experience.
  • Proficiency with Swift or Objective-C.
  • Interested in Test-Driven Development. Experience writing automated tests is a plus.
  • Excellent problem-solving and communication skills.
  • A desire to work in a fast-paced, cross-functional environment.
  • BS or MS in computer science, a related field, or equivalent professional experience.

About the Stack:

  • Swift, Objective-C
  • UIKit, XCTest, XCUITest
  • Cuckoo, OCMock
  • Jenkins CI

Once you join Wealthfront, you will:

  • Be paired with a mentor who will guide you through our structured onboarding program.
  • Work on projects that match your professional goals.
  • Be supported in your professional development with feedback during weekly 1:1s and during our semi-annual review cycle.
  • Have autonomy so you can be a creative, happy, and successful member of our team.

Everyone across the financial spectrum deserves to live secure and rewarding lives. In order to successfully serve clients across the United States, the Wealthfront team is focused on hiring team members with a diverse range of backgrounds, experiences and perspectives. We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

About Wealthfront

Wealthfront started with the ambition to transform the investment advisory business, with the goal to unlock access to high quality investment advice for millions who were underserved by the traditional institutions. We built the first automated investment product that allows you to invest in a personalized portfolio of thousands of companies in seconds for a remarkably low fee; we then expanded into banking which made it remarkably easy for people to automate their finances end-to-end and eliminated the hassle of money management, all of which resulted in attracting more than $27 billion of our client’s hard earned savings, created the robo-advisor category and transformed the broader industry. And yet, we have a long way to go to achieve our mission to build a financial system that favors people, not institutions.

Wealthfront’s vision is to make it delightfully easy to build long-term wealth on your own terms. This vision is more relevant than ever because millions more people are getting into the market early and investing their hard earned savings in a handful of stocks. While this is a great way to start, it is inconsistent with building long-term wealth. We want to empower young investors to expand their horizon, and easily explore and execute on a wider range of investing strategies, make informed investment decisions that are consistent with their values and beliefs while also making it effortless to grow and compound their savings exponentially, that’s transformational to their lives and their long-term future.
