About the job

Being a Mobile Developer for iOS in the AH Customer Technology domain, means you are responsible, together with your peers, for the technical aspects of Albert Heijn's iOS app, used by millions of customers in their daily shopping activities. You participate in the ideation of new cool initiatives, in standups and refinements, write code, enforce code quality, develop best practices, write tests and manage releases.

Why joining the mobile iOS team at AH Technology? Let us give you a few reasons:

  • We have nice technology in place: the app is fully written in Swift and we re working on moving to clean architecture.
  • You're building an app that is used by millions of customers in their daily shopping activities.
  • All you do in the app has a big impact.
  • You join a mobile community of 50+ engineers, who think alike, or different, but all love working on new initiatives, high performance and high quality, unit testing etc..
  • Grow your career and become part of the AH Tech Academy; our learning environment.

This is, in more detail, what the job entails and what we value:

  • Understand new tools or frameworks, or how changes in the language or new features in the SDK can help improve the product.
  • Put the organization in a position to deliver value as quickly as possible.
  • Ensure this is done using the most efficient tools and techniques.
  • Care deeply about consistent, malleable, well documented, tested code.
  • Know code is more often read than written.
  • Are aware that refactoring messy parts of the codebase is a normal part of your day (Boy Scout rule ftw!).
  • Can think about long-term challenges, and ways to improve a large code base with 20 regular contributors.
  • Expert in keeping things DRY, Clean and SOLID.

Curious about our mobile tech stack? We listed them on Stackshare. A sneak peak: 100% swift, moving to clean architecture (away from VIP). Big projects: no storyboards or nibs, 8K+ unit tests, 1K+ Snapshot tests, Github Actions, Fastlane.

This vacancy is a 100% swift role. A small part of our app is built using Flutter, if you are interested in the combination Flutter and iOS, we also have a (separate) vacancy for this role. You can contact Irene (recruiter) for more information about the role. The role will be online soon. For contact details, see below.

And here's a little bit more about us:

You probably already know who we are. Albert Heijn goes way back. More than 130 years, to be exact. So for millions of people, food shopping is synonymous with the Albert Heijn brand. We didn t achieve this with a complacent, hey, if it works today, it ll work tomorrow approach, but by continually rethinking our propositions and staying plugged in to customer demands. Over 1,000 stores? Check. The leading online food retail platform? Check, we build, run and love it. ;-)

So what s next? Accelerating our transition into a hybrid Food & Tech company is. We want to leverage data and technology to future-proof food shopping and make better food more easily accessible to everyone. At AH Technology, you team up with inspiring peers in the data, digital and tech domains. A community of diverse individuals who share a common goal; to create digital solutions that make (online) shopping simpler and more inspiring. Are you ready to reinvent the way millions of people buy and enjoy their food? We invest heavily in data, digital and tech. And that includes investing in your career!
