albelli and Photobox Group have merged to create a leading player in the online European Photo Product and Gifting market. Together we now serve a pan-European customer base of over 7 million customers, supported by our 1,150 colleagues across the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, France, Spain, Germany, Norway and Sweden. We are focussed on inspiring our customers to easily make beautiful photo products and bring their special moments to life.
The Mac photo book editor is used daily by thousands of people, so your work will directly impact their experience with the software. You'll get the chance of developing new creative features to help users design their perfect photo album. Next to that, we're continuously improving the performance, the stability and the user experience of the editor, all while supporting new business growth initiatives.
At our core, we have a strong focus on always bringing the code base to a higher level, by refactoring older Objective C parts to Swift using modern coding patterns and (third party) frameworks like Alamofire, Quick, Nimble and RxSwift.
The Mac photo book editor has been introduced 10 years ago and is our in-house solution for creating beautiful books in a native macOS application. The Mac Editor is intuitive, easy to use, allows you to creatively design your book and relive beautiful moments. During the past 10 years, we have made hundreds of thousands of users happy with their albums and printed more than 1 million products for our customers. The software can be used in multiple markets and is available for download both on our websites, as well as in the App Store.
We're a relatively small, but enthusiastic team in albelli. We're passionate about our work and proud to have such a strong impact on our users. The developments we make reach our target groups immediately and we thrive on quickly reacting to customer feedback. We value trust and collaboration, and we support each other within the team, to help us grow and do the best job possible.
By joining us as a Mac Editor software engineer, you will be part of the Client Editors team at albelli. We work according to the Scrum/Agile framework, so you will closely interact with the Product Owner, Scrum Master and Quality Engineers. The Client Editors team focuses on offering photo book creation software for both Windows and Mac OS and we aim to offer the same sets of features on both platforms.
As we are a small and agile team you are involved from the early stages of idea gathering up until having customer facing working software. We design software solutions that fit seamlessly in Apple's Cocoa architecture and the albelli code base. You develop these solutions in Swift, or occasionally in Objective-C. You document the interface and the implementation details, write unit tests, and debug your code.
As Apple continuously improves the macOS environment, you are involved in maintaining the application and making sure it runs on all supported macOS versions.
On occasion, you are involved in 3rd line support. If a user encounters a problem that albelli's 1st and 2nd line support departments cannot solve, your task is to examine the problem and provide a temporary or permanent solution.
