About ZAKA

About Us
We are an early-stage startup based in New York City on a mission to revolutionize the future of identity. As we live increasing digital lives, the methods we use to prove who we are have become outdated and insecure. We are building a universal identity platform that makes it faster, easier, and safer for people to prove their identities online, in person, and over the phone -- while providing businesses with an efficient, cost-effective, and secure way to know their customers.

About the Job
We are looking for a passionate, highly-skilled senior software engineer with solid industry experience to lead our team to launch and grow our existing products — such as our iOS app, website, and backend.

What You’ll Do
Initially, the role will mainly focus on fixing a shortlist of bugs and implementing a couple features in our existing iOS app (written in Objective-C) to complete and test our MVP. After launch, the role will be more involved as we look to rebuild our platform using the latest technologies — such as Swift, high-end security, and more. Our current tech stack includes (but is not limited to) iOS, Ruby on Rails, PostgreSQL, Angular, ng-admin, Typescript, JavaScript.

What We’re Looking For
• Minimum Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Computer Science, or related field
• 3+ years of industry experience in software engineering
• Portfolio of iOS apps on the App Store, other relevant work
• Expert in iOS development (Objective-C, Swift)
• Experience with full stack development (mobile and web)
• Experience with security (private/public keys, encryption, app security)
• Experience designing, building, and maintaining RESTful APIs
• Experience with UI/UX design
• Experience with 3rd party libraries, frameworks, and services

Bonus Qualifications
• Cybersecurity or other security-related experience
• Blockchain, decentralized architectures or relevant experience
• Machine learning, artificial intelligence, automation experience
• Android experience

Compensation and Benefits
• Competitive annual salary package
• Various other benefits

This is truly an exciting and opportune time to join our small team and help shape the future of identity. We are looking to build a team around the ideal candidate who will have a strong impact on the direction of our company.
