We’re so happy you found us. Since you’ve come this far, it’s safe to say you’re curious about our story and what career opportunities exist, so we’d love to start by introducing ourselves.

About us

Twenty20 is bringing stock photography into the modern, mobile age.  Our global community of over 250,000 creative mobile photographers have contributed over 45 million photos for sale, making us the largest crowdsourced commercial image catalog in the world.  We sell those images to companies like Google, Uber, Thought Catalog, and other leading brands/startups/agencies who are looking for a more authentic alternative to traditional stock imagery.
We are a small, autonomous, 7-person team based in Los Angeles, Marina del Rey working as part of the Envato family.
At Twenty20, we're working hard to build a marketplace that connects amateur and professional photographers to brands and agencies that want to buy photos of real people, having real emotions, doing real things.  We have tons of massive challenges in engineering and product over both a short timeline as well as over a longer time horizon. We work with massive amounts of unstructured data, and we’re constantly learning and building new ways to help our customers tell their stories with images from our photographer community.
Every team member touches every part of our code base, and we care deeply about fostering an environment that allows us all to teach and learn from each other, regardless of your role or area of expertise.  Our engineers work closely with product owners and designers to understand our unique community of artists and buyers, and use that understanding to build highly scalable systems, software, and tools to make them happy and productive.  

What you’ll be doing

We work to solve hard problems around photo classification, community management and data analysis, just to name some of the domains we deal with on a daily basis.  Lucky for us, we have an amazing team, now we’re looking to add to our crew, -- if you think you might fit in, we’d love to hear from you!

As our iOS Mobile Engineer, you'll be working on an app used by hundreds of thousands of photographers to participate in our social marketplace of authentic content. You will be part of the team that helps photographers make a living doing the things they love. There’s a little bit of everything to play with, social interactions, commercial interactions, gamification, and machine learning. You won’t be bored!  

On a day to day basis you will:

  • Write clean, well thought out and reliable code
  • Participate as a member of a small cross functional team containing members with different skills and experience
  • You'll work on big projects, small maintenance tasks, and anything else that makes software our customers love
  • Take lots of responsibility for your work as most teams don't have analysts, testers or system administrators
  • Take part in our 24/7 on-call rotation supporting one of the biggest websites in the world

Our Stack:

  • A mix of Objective-C and Swift (new code is written in Swift and old Objective-C is migrated when it makes sense)
  • Fastlane
  • Apps talk to APIs written in Ruby, Rails, and Sinatra
  • Persistent data storage is done with MySQL, PostgreSQL and Redshift.

What we’re looking for

  • Experience developing, releasing, and maintaining native iOS applications
  • Deep knowledge of Swift and Objective-C
  • Shipped a couple of delightful apps in the App Store
  • Experience working with a collaborative team

Essential Requirements:

  • Be a nice person who cares about their work
  • Excellent communicate skills, in person and in writing
  • Be a curious person committed to continual learning
  • Be capable of writing clean, well thought out and reliable code
  • Be comfortable working on a project from the original fuzzy brief through development and deployment and beyond with minimal oversight required
  • Have commercial Objective-C and Swift experience

Preferred Requirements:

  • Have some experience with Ruby (or other backend framework) so you can understand our APIs
  • Have experience with App Store Connect
  • Experience measuring how features perform (Google Analytics, Amplitude, etc.)
  • Have solid TDD/BDD experience
  • Have experience of other high volume/scale mobile apps
  • Past experience in other agile environments
  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Information Technology or Engineering

  • A fantastic culture of creatively minded, hard working people who are passionate about Twenty20 Envato and being part of its growth and success
  • We actively work on creating a safe, inclusive environment free from discrimination
  • A fast paced and progressive environment where everyone has regular interaction with teammates and Envato community members from all over the world!
  • A Great Team and Culture
  • Developers are responsible for features from inception through to them being in the hands of customers. The devs talk directly to our community and customers about what they're working on
  • We do continuous delivery properly: any team member can deploy, and we regularly do several deploys a day
  • We publish portions of our code as open source, and contribute back to open source projects we use
  • We actively work on creating a safe, inclusive environment free from discrimination
  • Future career progression will be available across the entire business - we're big on internal opportunities and professional growth!
