We're looking for an iOS engineer

We have really big plans post wrapping up Year 1, like when Instagram started putting out videos, in that sort of sense. But BIGGER. And good ideas should not stay on office walls, or .ppt (yikes).
We need all the eyes, hands we can get. If the following describes you, you're what we're looking for!
You love ideas, and executing them. Having old-school plumbers telling you how they're making dough with just three clicks on the Internet. And your users can tap, swipe and chill to have things cleaned and fixed around the house. No more Facebook posts and cold calling phone numbers on telephone poles (context: Malaysia).
You like building things that make a difference to thousands of people and businesses. You love working with a team as much as you love working with yourself. You honor the hacker code. In the startup of you, you experiment, pivot and aim to win on different tech stacks. You are a strategist in discipline and live for results, and are up for a good sprint.
Be a part of Kaodim, and find your place in changing the Southeast Asian market economy from your machine. Buckle up.
