I’ve seen very few postings for iPhone dev that look like really credible jobs, so … if you’re just looking for a side gig to get into the iPhone, you might want to look into some of the listings that follow, but if you’re looking for a serious job with a serious company, I’m not entirely sure if you’ll find one here.
Mostly, I think people smell an opportunity here and are scrambling to take advantage, although, to be honest, I think the easy advantage was to the first movers here, and we’re past that, so now you probably have to do a serious application to cut through the noise.
We’ll call this Mobile Monday:
- Someone is looking for a software designer and software engineer. Some parts of this posting sound a lot like the Cocoa Touch Games posting, so it’s possible this is a duplicate, but other parts make me think it’s something else. Again, this is a partnership for a cut of the sales, not a straight-out job.
- Someone is looking for Cocoa/Objective-C/iPhone development but … that’s about all we know. Job? Contract? Partnership? Email harvesting for spam?
- Another iPhone development posting with no information.
- A startup at Yonge/Eglinton looking for an iPhone developer to help them build the company.
There was another posting that called for a mobile software developer:
– Design, implement, and test client applications for various devices such as Blackberry, iPhone and Windows Mobile devices.
– Actively participate in porting applications to new devices.
– A firm understanding of the intricacies of mobile data networks is ideal.
This looks more credible to me, a little more like an actual job, although not a very senior one. The location’s a little far afield, and there’s not a lot of information, but it feels slightly more solid.
