iOS Engineer


Depop is the social marketplace where the world’s creatives come to buy, sell, discover and explore the most inspiring and unique items. We’re on a mission to build our platform into one of the most vibrant, inspiring and creative communities in the world. Headquartered in London and with spaces in New York, LA, Milan and Venice, we are a team of over 100 dedicated to supporting and enhancing the Depop experience of our 10 million plus users around the world.

Due to our continued growth, we’re on the hunt for an iOS Engineer in our London mobile team to help achieve our mission: transforming the way Depop connects with creative minds, by constantly delivering great user experiences on their Apple devices.

To reach this goal we keep investing on our technology, as well as the software architecture, and we achieve this through 3 core principles:

  1. We believe Swift is a great choice for writing robust and elegant code, but we also look for other functional languages which can inspires us.
  2. We believe applying solid architecture principles makes a huge difference when it comes to designing our features, supporting many engineers working on the same codebase.
  3. We believe in automation and we applied this in many parts of our release pipeline, giving us more time to work on features whilst celebrating a new version of our app every two weeks.


  • Completes work in accordance to the coding, UX, quality and testing standards set by the team
  • Proactively shapes the technical approach, acceptance criteria and design of features in collaboration with the team
  • Completes Peer Reviews according to team standards and gives constructive feedback
  • Monitors the app health metrics of our apps
  • Monitors and maintains the health of our Continuous Integration pipeline
  • Identifies opportunities to present knowledge during internal meetups and other sessions
  • Attends and actively contributes to Agile Events.


  • Inventive mind ideally with a healthy sprinkling of BSc and PhD in CS, Maths, or Physics
  • 2+ years of Swift or Objective-C experience, with real exposure to different platforms and OS versions
  • Strong experience in consuming a RESTful API
  • Experience writing unit tests using the XCTest framework
  • Experience to work with a GIT repo. GITFlow is a plus
  • Experience with the VIPER architecture is a plus
  • Have had responsibility for shipping at least one well regarded iOS application
  • Experience producing apps featuring a fast, consistent, and non-blocking user experience
  • Able to exercise great judgement on when to craft your own frameworks, as opposed to employing those from the community.


Now we're talking. We have stylish offices near Old Street (we were founded in Italy after all) and a relaxed atmosphere where you'll get to work with a well-funded, passionate and friendly team. There are perks of course, to name a few we have 25 days holiday, options to buy/sell more, the regular snacks and drinks, parties and team nights out, yoga, meditation, UK pension scheme, beer and wine in the fridge (or sparkling water and celery if that's more your thing), special stuff on birthdays and life events and more. But the biggest perk of all is the opportunity to work with such a vibrant group of people building a product we all deeply care about.
