Our 3000+ employees in Adevinta focus daily on solving real problems for our users. With leading generalist marketplaces across Europe, exciting growth companies in Latin America and Eastern Europe, and technology hubs in Barcelona and Paris, our teams balance local insight with global scale to develop innovative products and features on the leading edge of digital.

CnT team

CnT is a small and specialized team responsible for developing, shipping and maintaining the classifieds marketplace products in Tunisia (“Tayara”) & Dominican Republic (“Corotos”) serving hundred of thousands of users adding up to more than 3 million weekly visits.

You will contribute to a top-of-the-line product solution, using the latest available technologies to run three end-user products (Web, Android, iOS) and our back office tool set. Based in Barcelona, you will work in a talented and dynamic environment. With high expectations on this small team, you will play a critical role for our success in the two markets and to establish a high-performing team.


The iOS app is built using Swift 4, but uses a number of 3rd party components from external and internal suppliers. We use CocoaPods for our package management, so previous experience here is a must. Some of the complex UI has been built with a 3rd party library called Layout, but a large portion of the app still uses storyboards and xibs. (https://github.com/nicklockwood/layout).

Our team uses CI to build out project, Github for source code management and Jira for task management. You should be experienced writing unit tests in XCTest, there are hundreds of tests in the project and you will be expected to support and maintain those as much as the code itself.

Most of the backend systems are GraphQL based. This does function quite differently to your standard REST API, so any previous experience is a bonus.

As iOS Software engineer you will:

  • Work in a multi-disciplinary team, and help to maintain and evolve an iOS app that is running in two fast-growing countries.
  • Write clean/readable code using Swift and Cocoa design patterns.
  • Interface with GraphQL APIs and web services.
  • Create compelling UI interfaces with UIKit..
  • Contribute to the applications architecture definition.
  • Be creative and experiment with new solutions but pragmatic and committed to code optimisation, maintainability, and quality.
  • Work with product owners and designers to prioritise and deliver improvements.
  • Work collaboratively with the rest of the engineering team to make sure we're constantly improving the way we work and build software.
  • Work closely and collaboratively with the Android team to make sure that the apps align where possible, and share some of the effort of keeping app configs and string translations in sync.
  • Support diverse clients.
  • You must have successfully deployed apps to the AppStore as you will be responsible for being the expert in managing this.
  • You must liaise with designers and collaborate with constructive feedback to new designs. Suggest platform best practises where appropriate, but be diplomatic and professional.
  • You must have great attention to detail and quality in both code, the final visual product and testing. You will be required to do the bulk of app testing yourself, so you must be meticulous with this otherwise thousands of users could be affected.


  • Excellent experience in iOS development.
  • Deep expertise in Swift/Objective-C and Cocoa Touch.
  • Expertise in Unit testing and UI testing.
  • Experience with CI practices and toolings
  • Experience with interacting with GraphQL and REST APIs
  • Strong understanding of iOS performance, scalability, and implementation constraints.
