For most people, the challenge and inconvenience of writing well on mobile are one of the biggest barriers to using their phones for professional communication. That’s why we built the Grammarly Keyboard for iOS: to bring effective and mistake-free writing to mobile devices. Since launching a year ago, we’ve built a strong active user base and gained stellar traction — our users are using the keyboard more than 50 times per day.
But while the keyboard may look simple, it’s extremely challenging to execute flawlessly. A one-second delay after you hit a button in an app might be ok, but would you use a keyboard that didn’t respond instantly to your touch? When you build a product that can respond instantly while running machine learning models and continuously communicating with servers in one-tenth of a second, it becomes even more challenging to deliver a delightful user experience.
We are looking for an iOS Engineer who will help us level up the Grammarly Keyboard and its companion app to world-class user experience. You will work in a team of iOS Engineering professionals as well as partner closely with the design team from the ideation stage to ultimately bring your ideas to life.
