FAQ:

Do I have to live in Utah?
No, preferably you would live in or around Utah Valley / South Salt Lake Valley area, but we are open to remote employees.

Do I need to have Mac development experience?
No, but bonus points if you have some. And if you want to learn, this is a great opportunity to make some contributions on the Day One Mac app.

What’s your development workflow?
Our Mac and iOS apps are separate Xcode projects, but they share a common core library that we call, creatively, “DayOne-Core”. We share as much as is reasonable. When we have code to commit we submit PRs in GitHub. Our build system automatically builds and tests each PR and each one is reviewed by another engineer before being merged.

Code reviews?
We’ve found that code reviews are a fantastic way to learn about other parts of the code. We promise that these reviews are kind, substantive and not nit-picky. We’re fun people.

Which OS versions are you targeting?
2.0 will target iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite.

Why is this a local position?
We’ve found that a hybrid local/remote setup is ideal for the iterative design approach that we take.

Where is your office?
Our office is in Lehi, near Lowe’s and Costco.
