New opportunities at Itty Bitty Apps

Itty Bitty Apps is looking for an iOS developer to join the team.

We are a mobile consulting and product development company based in Melbourne Australia. If you’re an iOS developer, you might know us from our runtime introspection tool Reveal. If you’re in Australia and you’ve ever used the or SEEK apps, you’ve seen some of our handiwork.

We are passionate about great software engineering, UX and design. You will need to be too, and more than that, you’ll need to be able to point to products you’ve worked on that reflect your own high standards.

Our work environment is relaxed but focussed on achieving great results for our clients and delivering ground breaking development tools to our customers. Most of our consulting engagements are on-site with clients, where we can help shape the design and implementation of their mobile products. You’ll need to be enthusiastic about working embedded with their teams and in their environments (largely agile).

Reveal product development is done in-house, and as part of the team you will have opportunities to work on this amazing product.

Our office is located in one of Melbourne’s best laneways for food and coffee in the heart of the city. You will not be left wanting for single origin or cold drip coffee, if that’s your thing.

We can sponsor international applicants via the 457 Temporary Work Visa and permanent residency applications. You will need to have an undergraduate degree to be considered for sponsorship. This could be the opportunity you’ve been looking for to move to one of the most liveable cities in the world.

Candidates with a track record of Open Source contributions and a mastery of multiple programming languages and platforms will be highly regarded.

If you’re interested in applying for this role, send an email to telling us about your experience and links to examples of your work. Salary packages are commensurate with experience. See the job description below for more details.
