About the role
We are looking for a talented iOS Software Engineer eager to deliver a best-in-class mobile application to join the Fitbit Developer Platform (FDP) team.
FDP enables experiences for our users by exposing an SDK to developers.
Some of the areas that FDP focuses on : Mobile (iOS & Android), Firmware (Trackers & Smartwatches), Site & Backend (Gallery, Gallery Application Manager, Studio - Online IDE), Simulators, Developer Interaction.
The tools and APIs developed inside FDP are used both internally (by other teams in Fitbit) and by a large community of external developers.

On mobile, the SDK is built using native technologies. The main focus of the SDK is to provide an easy way for JS developers to run their custom code (called companion).
Companions leverage the power of the mobile phone and the smart watches' bluetooth connection for enhancing the clock faces and applications that run on Fitbit devices.
As mobile developers in the FDP Team, we extend, maintain and contribute to a complex system that is built on top of Fitbit's bluetooth stack & native JS runtime.
Native resource availability, permissions, companion lifecycle management & application install, QOS, metrics, API design are some of the things we focus on.
On top of that, we also enforce code quality and engineering good practices like : unit testing, integration testing, automation, code reviews, PRs, use of linters etc.
We’re also working on new, cool things that haven’t been released yet. We can’t name them here for now, but you could be a valuable member of the team that will be building them.
