Job details

iOS Engineer, Growth Team (Remote)


As a member of Substack’s Growth team, you will be responsible for building mobile features that bring writers to Substack and help them succeed here – improving discovery, internationalizing language and payments on Substack, strengthening Substack’s network of readers and writers, and running A/B tests on key user flows. Engineers on Growth work in close partnership with designers, product thinkers, and customers to make it easier than ever for writers to make a living.

Substack’s compensation package includes a market competitive salary, equity for all full time roles, and exceptional benefits. Our cash compensation salary range for this role is $165,000 - $210,000. Final offer amounts are determined by multiple factors including candidate experience and expertise and may vary from the amounts listed above.


  • Develop features that help writers make more money on Substack.
  • Own full-stack features, including both client-side work in the Substack iOS app (Swift) and backend work (Node / TypeScript).
  • Collaborate with the iOS engineering team to define and ship architectural patterns for the iOS client.
  • Collaborate with designers, writers, support staff, and many others. From product concept and research to implementation and deployment, we expect you to own your work and operate autonomously.
  • Work directly with customers to solve their problems. The entire company (CEO included) participates in customer support in order to drive empathy for our users and help us build better products.


  • At least 5 years of software engineering experience.
  • Experience shipping high quality iOS apps to the App Store.
  • Independent and autonomous. We’re too small to micromanage, and expect that every person at the company owns their work and can be a leader.
  • Hold yourself and others to a high standard when working on production systems.
  • Take pride in building elegant and delightful product experiences. Substack works best when it gets out of the way so writers can focus on writing and connecting with their readers. 
  • Enjoy collaboration with a diverse group of thinkers while bringing our own unique experience and background to the team.
  • Believe in Substack’s mission to build a better business model for writing.

Experience at a fast-growing startup or working on a high-performing growth team is not required, but is a plus.
