Sr. iOS Developer @ Ladder


Ladder is looking to hire a talented Senior iOS developer to help design, build, and innovate the next generation of fitness applications for Apple platforms. Your primary focus will be developing high-end, user focused applications to help our members become stronger and healthier together.

Our ideal candidate is a hands-on leader: hungry, inquisitive, creative, proactive, energetic and driven. We’re especially interested in candidates who thrive in a fast-paced environment, are comfortable collaborating and contributing within a small team, and love to craft user centered experiences on Apple platforms.

Come collaborate with us as we push the boundaries of fitness applications and what it means to be a part of a fitness community.


We are a fast growing start-up making waves in fitness, and now looking for a rockstar new iOS developer to join our growing Engineering team.

We're Ladder, a fitness app that delivers the very best online strength training experience on the planet, and purposely designed for people who are already serious about fitness.

Ladder is built DIFFERENT, combining the power of a personal trainer with the accountability of a team, in the convenience of an app. It’s a plan, not a playlist. We believe that doing random workouts will get you random results, and that real change and sustainability happens when you always have a plan.

With Ladder, you get to train with the best coaches in the world, who bring new workouts every week, so you always know exactly what to do.

While this is still Day 1 for us, we’ve been publicly recognized by Men’s Health, Women’s Health, CNET, Bloomberg, and more, but what we’re most proud of is our 4.9 App Store rating across over 9,000 5-Star reviews posted since we launched in July 2020.
