Panic Blog

Cocoa Engineer

2011 will be a great year, and we just might need your help to make it all happen. Panic Inc has a very special opportunity for a very special person (or two) to join our amazing development team.

We’re looking for an experienced Mac OS X / iOS Cocoa engineer.

The ideal candidate will:

  • Care about both form and function
  • Debug, refine, and extend our existing apps
  • Contribute code and passion to new apps
  • Look for opportunities to improve our development process
  • Play well with our existing engineering team
  • Be excited and mostly eyeroll-free when tackling new challenges and ideas
  • Love doing what you do, daily

In addition to base salary, Panic offers:

  • Bi-annual profit sharing bonuses
  • Annual retirement plan contributions
  • Full medical/vision/dental insurance
  • Flexible vacation policy
  • Reasonable, life-compatible hours
  • A very nice work environment, we think

But take note: this position is in Portland, OR.

(While we may consider telecommuters in the future, right now we really love having everybody under one roof.)

Sound interesting? E-mail your resume to us, and attach or link us to a sample app — any sample app you played a part in. If we’d like to talk further, we will send you additional details.

While we can’t write back to everyone, we thank you in advance for your interest!

(Also: forward this to anyone you might know!)

If I didn’t already love being a Mac programmer where I live (Nevada City, CA) so very much, I would this very instant be in my car on the way to Portland to camp out on your doorstep.

If only I lived in the US. Dammit.

Moving to Washougal, but I’m in my current job till 2016! Doh!

I just have to say.. nice work with the tags in safari, cool effect.

So involved in things here…

Wow. Is it me or does the slight rotation of the container blur the text quite a bit?

Safari 5.0.3 for the record

I’m too feeling the blur. I had to open the web inspector and un-rotate the element so I could read the text without hurting my eyes.

On another note, I wish I lived in the US.

@SSteve You’re a Mac programmer in Nevada City? Me too. How have we not met? :-)

I would love to work for Panic, seem an awesome place to work.

You should have a Panic TV show where different candidates participate in feats of strength for the job. I would not pay for this show but wouldn’t complain about advertising as a courtesy to you.

There should be an IRC channel where Panic nerds can chat about Cabel sightings. I would join this chat room immediately.

I would study to be an awesome Cocoa programmer if I lived in Portland, OR (and I would probably have started some years ago). Unfortunately I live in Denmark.

Would you guys hire someone for a summer-intern like position?

If only I lived in Portland. *sigh*

While I’m still working on my undergrad, and a Canadian to boot [how aboot that?], I have to say that what struck me most about this posting is the “Reasonable, life-compatible hours” benefit. I wish more tech companies would stress this – or value it in any way.

Too often it feels like we – especially young programmers and engineers – are here to be used and ground up and compelled to work 60-80+ hours a week.

Thank you for being human, and allowing your employees the same.
