O kompaniji

It’s a weird name, isn’t it? We chose Bending Spoons after the iconic scene in The Matrix, where the hero discovers that what seems impossible often isn't. In 2013, when we were a punchy little startup, the parallel seemed appropriate. Today, even more so.

That five-person startup has blossomed into 300-plus bright, curious, and inventive Spooners from more than 20 countries. Some of our apps have become household names. Take Splice—in terms of revenue, the world's number one mobile video editor. Or 30 Day Fitness—the Health & Fitness category leader with over 60 million downloads.

Plenty has changed since those early startup days. But our mission remains steadfast. We're still going all-out every day to improve lives through our products, our career opportunities, and our impact on the world. It’s a wonderful journey to be on!

P.S. We've won a bunch of awards for being one of Europe's best places to work and Italy's best place to work for women, for innovators, and overall. Check out our Glassdoor reviews to learn more about working together!

Opis posla

At Bending Spoons, we’ve established ourselves as one of Europe’s leading tech companies. However, several years into this journey, it truly feels like we’ve just scratched the surface of what’s in store for us. As an engineering lead, you’ll play a leading role in our mission to make a mark on planet iOS—and a leading role in the ultimate success of Bending Spoons at large. You will make a major contribution to technical decisions. Nothing is set in stone. If you have a good idea, no one will stop you from trying it. Actually, you’ll be met with support and encouragement. You’ll work with a team of supremely talented engineers, guiding their individual growth in tandem with the team’s overall well-being. Each one of our apps has its own super-complex logic, with numerous engineering challenges. Looking for the freedom to study, test, and evaluate every new technology under the sun? Not only do we allow you to, we encourage you to. We pride ourselves on being pioneers—for example, we don't hesitate to use immature or complex technologies.

This role is for someone who wants to make a difference, not just commercially, but also behind the scenes. Our iOS plans for the coming years are ambitious, audacious, and more than a little awe-inspiring. We’re counting on you to lead our charge.

A few examples of your responsibilities:


  • Participate in and contribute to product development and product roadmap planning. Here, we’re all about taking a proactive role and ownership of the products you work on.
  • Help define the software architecture of new apps or new features for existing apps—then develop them. The work spans broadly, from engineering and coding features to polishing world-class user interfaces.
  • Coach our junior software engineers to world-beater status by teaching them our best practices and your secrets.
  • Constantly improve the quality of our products by fixing bugs and refactoring the code base where necessary.
  • Expand our set of libraries as needed to make yourself, as well as other engineers, more efficient and effective.
  • Stay informed on new mobile technologies and test the promising ones to make sure we don’t miss out on game-changing opportunities to boost our productivity and the enjoyment of our work.

Kvalifikacije

What We Look For


  • Expertise. You have a few years of mobile development experience, ideally in native development (Swift).
  • Reasoning and depth of learning. You’re structured and creative enough to solve most challenging problems independently, given the necessary knowledge. You learn new concepts and skills rapidly, and love to nerd out and go in-depth.
  • Drive. You’re energetic, hard-working, and persevere through adversity until the job is done—and done impeccably. You’re massively into getting results, and always aim for excellence in what you do.
  • Curiosity and initiative. You love exploring, and you’re entrepreneurial in hunting down new opportunities and testing new ideas. You seek—you don’t just wait to be told what to do.
  • A knack for UX and attention to detail. You care about developing quality user experiences, and notice the details that make a difference. You get a kick out of making a UI or an animation just perfect.
  • Diligence, organization. You can be entrusted with responsibilities big and small.
  • Humility. You’re down to earth, eager to listen to feedback and constructive criticism, and ready to get your hands dirty with whatever the team needs to succeed.
  • Proficient in English. You read and write proficiently, and speak at a conversational level in English.
  • Passion for the topic. You have a long-standing, proven passion for writing software for mobile development.
  • Leadership. You know how to lead by example, and you enjoy coaching others. You don’t believe in micromanagement and know that great people naturally thrive under light—but timely—leadership.
  • Pragmatism. Far from being too academic or obsessive in your perfectionism, you understand that, when getting things done in a competitive world, speed is every bit as important as quality.

Dodatne Informacije

What We Offer


  • Huge impact. You’ll be working on products used by millions of people all around the world. The quality of your work will make a decisive difference to our users and to Bending Spoons.
  • Talented, knowledgeable colleagues. You’ll get the chance to learn from and teach some of the brightest and most skilled people you’ll ever meet. Your talent is going to blossom here.
  • Cool tech stack. We strive to use the best, most modern tools and technologies, and when they fall short of our expectations we invent our own. It’s a geek’s paradise.
  • Own products. We don’t work for clients—we only develop our own apps. Freed from client-provider politics, we can move fast and be daring.
  • Continuous education. We pay for your Italian/English language lessons and offer an unlimited book budget, but that's not where it ends. If you make a good case for some extra learning, we're delighted to foot the tab.
  • Remote working. Spend as much or as little time in our Milan office as you choose (even no time at all, if you’d prefer). Many Spooners like to change up their environment and get out of the city whenever the mood strikes. Every day, you’ve got the freedom to decide where today’s office is.
  • Flexible schedule. This isn’t a “clock in, clock out” company. Morning person? Start work while the world’s still sleeping. Night owl? Ramp things up while others are winding down. You’re fully trusted to create the right conditions for your own personal peak productivity.
  • Unlimited vacations. Take all the time you need to recharge your batteries—no permission process or vacation allowance here. Because a rested, relaxed, and refreshed Spooner is a happy and effective Spooner.
  • Top of the market salary and stock options. Our total compensation is very competitive and can grow rapidly and include stock options, depending on your performance.
  • Lots. Of. Fun. Our incredible People Operations team organizes awesome events, such as team games, drinks, yoga classes, parties, and regular company-wide retreats. Recent destinations include Bali, Argentina, and Tanzania.
  • Top-notch HQ. Natural light, silent rooms, state-of-the-art hardware, fun-filled common spaces... the list never ends! You’ll certainly be in the right environment to do your best work. And, when it’s time to switch off, you can do so in style and comfort.
  • Relocation package. To ease your move to Milan (if you decide to relocate), the first three months of rent are on us. Visa support is provided for those who need it.

The Recruiting Process


If you successfully pass through our screening process, we’ll invite you to take on a few tests that assess how you approach and solve unfamiliar problems. These tests don’t require any prior knowledge, and they should take a few hours to complete. If you’re successful there, we’ll invite you to some interviews—normally two or three—to get to know each other and figure out if it’s a good fit for both parties. The interviews are held remotely, and include some behavioral and problem-solving questions. To limit arbitrariness and human bias, all Bending Spoons hiring decisions are made by a hiring committee.

Bending Spoons is an equal opportunity employer. We do not discriminate based upon race, religion, color, ancestry, national origin, sex (including pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions), sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, age, disability. We are committed to providing reasonable accommodations for candidates with disabilities in our recruiting process. If you need any assistance or accommodations due to a disability, please let us know at accommodations-ext@bendingspoons.com.

​​Spooners come from all over the world and English is our working language. We welcome applications in English or Italian—whichever suits you best!
