iOS Developer

Brightcove, Boston

Making video work for you

About Us:

Brightcove is the global leader in providing online video to Media and Digital Marketing organizations. Our global services team, BGS, builds highly scalable and complex solutions on our platform for some of the best known media companies in the world - and we're growing. If you have great technical skill, a passion for online video, a keen sense of creativity and a willingness to work with our clients to build awesome experiences, we'd love to talk.

About you and the role:

You’ve been developing iOS applications for the last few years and think you’ve seen and done it all. Developing, testing and submitting apps to the App Store is old hat, and you understand the Apple ecosystem pretty well (what on earth is a provisioning profile, anyway?!). Maybe you reminisce about the old days of the App Store, and how exciting it was to be part of an exploding new world. Maybe you’re looking to do something fresh and different now. What can you build next to get regain some of that excitement you had from your first app submission?

Back in 2015, Apple gave all of us iOS devs the keys to a brand new castle: AppleTV!!! Using the finely tuned Objective-C and Swift skills you have cultivated, you can now create apps in a whole new world – with a permanent internet connection!!! Instead of doing this in your spare time, why not come to work at one of Boston’s “Best Places to Work” and develop them full time!!!

Here in Brightcove’s Global Services group we are looking for experienced iOS developers to architect and build the next generation of video-centric apps for our customers, most of whom are looking to bring their video content into the living room. If you think you have the chops to build the next Netflix or Hulu, with a stunning interface that captivates users, then come join our team. Our office has a scenic view of the Boston Harbor and is a short walk to South Station, with collaborative spaces and lots of craft beer to complement the competitive ping pong games. 


  • Experience shipping one or more iOS/tvOS apps, ideally currently available in the App Store
  • 5 years of Software Development experience, with at least 2 in iOS
  • A Bachelors degree or equivalent experience

Previous video experience is not necessary, but a team-first attitude and a passion for creating top quality software is. Our team is small and looking forward to welcoming high quality developers who are ready to learn. Once you ramp up, you will be expected to be able to handle working on multiple projects and manage your time effectively as the team's opportunities expand.

Why you want to work here:

What we offer is the chance to work with a small, passionate team inside Brightcove to build some amazing media platforms, competitive compensation, options, benefits, unlimited vacation and an amazing office.


This position is based in our Boston office. We offer a fun work environment, competitive compensation, stock options, 401k matching, and tuition reimbursement.  Our offices are located downtown, right on Fort Point harbor by South Station, with a fully stocked kitchen, ping pong and foosball tables, etc.  We also offer unlimited vacation — and expect you to use it!
