Senior iOS Engineer



Depop is the fashion marketplace where the next generation buy, sell and get inspired. Our mission is to empower the next generation to transform fashion, and our team of nearly 200 people is dedicated to enhancing and developing the Depop experience to serve the needs of our global community.

We are headquartered in London, UK with locations in New York and LA, and have more than 16 million registered users in 147 countries.

We have a prime position in the UK where we estimate 1 in 3 Gen Z/Millennials are registered. We are experiencing rapid growth (300% over two years) in the US; recently entering the top 25 shopping apps (the only European player to do so).

And we’re just getting started.


Right now, we’re on the hunt for a Senior iOS Engineer to help us 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:

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • We believe in automation and we apply 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.
