iOS Developer — QA Focus

About Matter

Matter is a small but growing startup. Our first product is an iOS app that pairs personal experience with universal neuroscience to help everyone understand what’s happening in their brain.

Our goal is to help people live healthier, happier, longer lives — for themselves and the people around them.

We’re a small, fully-remote team committed to doing our best work. For us this means balance. We work Monday through Thursday. In addition to every Friday, we offer 20 vacation days per year, plus the last week of December. Compensation includes stock options. The salary range for this full-time role is $140,000 to $170,000.

We’re all here to support and help each other, but you need to be able to work independently. Here are some of the things that you’ll be up to:

  • Staying up to date with industry best practices for applying test-driven development methodologies to support high-performing teams producing high-quality code

  • Unit and UI testing to validate business logic and ensure the reliability of our builds

  • Maintaining documentation and building a knowledge base for efficient cross-team collaboration

  • Debugging, troubleshooting, and critical thinking on bug prioritization

  • Reviewing pull requests by teammates to ensure that new work meets testing standards

  • Contributing to scalable, robust, and efficient mobile software using SwiftUI


College degrees and certifications, numbers of years of experience, and prestigious accolades are not required. General life experience, expertise in your area, curiosity, and generosity with skills and knowledge are more important. 

We’d love to hear about your experience in:

  • iOS, Swift, SwiftUI, and XCTest

  • Software development for other platforms (web, macOS, Windows, Android, etc.)

  • Communication: written and verbal


Doing meaningful work shouldn’t come at the expense of building a meaningful life. At Matter, this means:

  • Four-day work week: Monday through Thursday

  • 20 vacation days of your choice, plus the last week in December off

  • Remote-first work environment

  • 100% company funded, premium healthcare coverage for you and your dependents

To apply

Even though we’re all pretty experienced, we learn something new almost every day. It may be about neuroscience, design, or technology. Or it may be about something else entirely. We’ll be excited to learn from you, too. 

If you’re interested in this role, please email the following to

  • A paragraph or two about your experience and why you’re interested in this role

  • Link(s) to a well-tested project that you’ve worked on, with a couple sentences about your contributions

  • Anything else you’d like us to know about you or your work

We’ll look forward to hearing from you.
