Verizon Senior Software Engineer in San Jose, California
What you’ll be doing...
Our Engineering team focuses on achieving an ideal balance between customer delight, innovation and developer experience. We have a great mix of backgrounds and expertise across a deep stack of technologies and a culture of collaborative problem solving. We’re at a great size for smart, motivated individuals to come in and challenge themselves to grow to the next phase of their careers.
We are looking for a skilled macOS/iOS developer to be part of a lean agile team developing apps and features that will change how the world works together. Along with the rest of your team, you will be responsible for delivering great experiences across our Mac and iOS platforms.
If you are somebody who is passionate about the Apple ecosystem, loves pushing the boundaries of both software and the development environment... then we want to talk to you! Here are some details of who you might be
Build and maintain Company’s MacOS and iOS applications. Design, develop and test client media, business logic and UI code for multi-way collaboration features and functionality at both system and user experience levels in Company’s Mac desktop and iOS applications.
Build optimizations to retain the highest possible audio/video quality under the full range of wi-fi/network conditions encountered by the customer base and to also ensure minimal performance footprint (CPU, GPU, battery drain, memory, bandwidth) of the applications for best user experience.
Work together with Design and Product Management teams to spec out and implement intuitive and elegant user experience flows for new collaboration features as well as perfect existing flows such as meeting join and leave, camera/mic/speaker selection, content sharing, etc.
Build resilience and recovery features to minimize disruption to the user experience in case of failure conditions (i.e. servers going down, connections dropping, etc.).
Write automation test suites to catch quality regressions. Review code from peers and provide design feedback.
Instrument, capture, and analyze data in internal and external monitoring tools to debug customer issues in real time and provide support.
Deploy and roll out updates to the applications via the appropriate ecosystems (S3/Akamai for the MacOS app, Apple App Store for the iOS app).
Monitor ecosystems for new releases (ex. New Operating System versions, new hardware profiles) and ensure continued compatibility of Company’s apps with them.
