Hobart, Australia
Posted on Tuesday, October 4, 2022
At Procreate we're dedicated to making exceptional creative tools by combining beautiful user experiences with high performance engineering. Used by millions around the globe, Procreate is committed to placing more power in the hands of creatives.
We’re looking for iOS Engineers to join our team in Hobart, Tasmania. You’ll join our product team and build and maintain next generation Procreate products and features. We are looking for a design-minded engineer with an intuitive understanding for creating seamless user interfaces and delightful digital interactions.
Who we are.
One of the driving factors behind Procreate’s success is our close-knit teamwork. We believe the key to invention is the open flow of ideas and collaboration — revelling in the creative process and taking the time to hone our craft. Together we’re dedicated to building creative software that is powerful, accessible, and intuitive. We’re not afraid to rethink, iterate and persist until we genuinely believe in our work.
At Procreate we’re a rare breed of driven people from all over the world. Each of us brings something special to the table, through our unique backgrounds and experience. Every day we inspire each other to continue our relentless pursuit, passion, and hunger to produce the highest quality work, while remaining humble in our achievements.
Co-founded by James and Alanna Cuda in 2011, Procreate has remained independent and self-funded for over 10 years. Since its launch, Procreate has been loved by millions around the world, received two coveted Apple Design Awards, and been the best-selling app on iPad for the past six years running. In 2018, Procreate Pocket also received an iPhone app of the year award. In 2023, an all new animation app Procreate Dreams was released.
The role.
This role sits with the Product team and reports directly to the CTO, Michael Shaw. You’ll collaborate with engineers, the product care department and members of the executive. You’ll work closely with our designers to bring form to prototypes and continually iterate to solve user experience problems.
Role Benefits.
We invest in you
Every employee at Procreate receives an individual training budget to help them grow personally and professionally. And because transparency matters, the whole company is included in the coming year’s plans and strategies at our annual off-site company meet.
Time to reset, recharge and look after yourself
Australia already has some of the most generous annual leave provisions in the world at a mandated 4 weeks per year. We also offer you extended parental leave, an extra 5 Doona Days per year, plus an Employee Assistance Program open to you and your family members.
Everything you need to do your best work
We’ll provide you with all the hardware and software you need, including a fully adjustable desk set up for your way of working. But it’s the personalised professional support, and growth and development opportunities we think will really help you fly.
