iOS Mobile UI Developer - Contract to Hire in Reston, VA

Ref: US_EN_6_17473_54034824

Reston, Virginia
Contract Type

Are you looking for a long-term opportunity with an exciting organization as a mobile iOS UI developer? Are you ready to advance your career and technical skills in a supportive team environment?

A valued Modis client is seeking a senior iOS/Javascript developer for a contract-to-hire role in Reston, VA. The client will sponsor H1B candidates after the contract period (6 months) so candidates must be willing to convert. This is a highly respected local client with a positive work atmosphere, and you’ll enjoy the stability of a long-term opportunity.

Compensation is commensurate with experience. Local candidates highly preferred; must be able to interview in -person.

This is an urgent position and the client is looking to hire immediately- apply today!

The most essential skill is strong experience in Swift 2.x and/or 3.x for mobile development— the client really needs an iOS UI “whiz.” Javascript experience is highly desirable but not essential; however, the candidate must have front end development skills regardless of the language. This position will interact closely with project management and software engineers to shape project requirements and guide projects through completion.

We’re looking for a candidate who…

  • Can hand-code HTML5, CSS3, and basic JavaScript without needing assistance from code completion or any computer program
  • Can document ideas in hand-written pseudo code
  • Continuously seeks out and learns new web techniques on their own
  • Is a mature professional with initiative and drive
  • Truly enjoys user interface creation and front end development

The following qualities are not required, but are highly desired:

  • Understands and enthusiastically embraces philosophies like Web Standards, Semantic markup and good programming practices
  • Has created their own independent projects or contributed to open source projects
  • Is active in the local or national web design and development community


  • 5+ years of related professional experience
  • Strong experience in Swift 2.x or 3.x for mobile iOS development
  • Expert knowledge of HTML, CSS 2 and 3, or JavaScript, and have significant knowledge of integration with back end systems
  • Familiar with Apple's Human Interface guidelines and App Store review guidelines.
  • Experience with large enterprise software projects, from conception to delivery to testing.
  • Experience with iOS frameworks/SDKs, including Core Location, AVFoundation, MediaPlayer and Facebook SDK.

Great to have:

Significant OO JavaScript knowledge

  • Experience with Objective-C is a plus.
  • Experience with multi-threading and Grand Central Dispatch.
  • Proficient with Javascript, at least one open source web framework and building hybrid mobile apps.
  • Experience with XML and JSON
  • Experience using JavaScript and jQuery with server side technology
  • Expert knowledge of HTML5 and CSS3
  • Expert knowledge of accessibility and WCAG2 AA compliance
  • Working knowledge of building user interfaces using Storyboards and Auto Layout.
  • Fair knowledge of data structures, algorithms and designing for performance.
  • Mobile development for web and on native platforms (iOS, Android)
  • Rea
