Between Draft, Campfire, and Highrise, we’ve been building quite the iOS portfolio of applications. We want to take good care of them and continue building more iOS and mobile applications, so we’re hiring a dedicated programmer for the task.
Think you’re up for it? Check out the complete job posting on the 37signals Job Board.

Y’all have been such strong advocates of web apps and the open web. Why not use “HTML5” for mobile development?
Sukh Dugalon 29 Jul 10
Slow, and steady, you will add that weight
Scotton 29 Jul 10
Wondering the same as tim. What is it that leads to the decision that native is best for iOS while web is best for laptops? Is it the OS, the form factor, distribution (e.g. AppStore), user expectations, other?
DHHon 29 Jul 10
HTML5 is great for a lot of things, but a dedicated mobile app for the iPhone (and Android) is hard to beat. Especially if you want to integrate with things like voice. Or do updates in the background. Or anything else that requires straight-to-the-metal access.
DHHon 29 Jul 10
Sukh, no doubt. In a couple of years, we might even be 26 people!!

Usually, “competitive salary” = you are going to work a lot with little money. Almost all companies use that term and it’s not very appealing to rock star geeks. Maybe you should try something else.

@A Guy From South America
I much prefer to see ‘competitive salary’ than ‘rock star’.
Jimmy Chanon 30 Jul 10
@dhh Wondering how much the salary range?

I’m glad to see you moving more into mobile apps (especially those for iPhone). Third party devs just never quite got the 37signals feel and user experience down.
DHHon 30 Jul 10
South Africa, interesting. I actually put it on there to mean the opposite. That we’re not going to pay a shitty salary and pad it up with lottery coupon options and then demand death marches.

When I look at jobs I tend to read “competitive salary” the way DHH intended it. It’s “salary commeasurate with experience” that worries me. Of course, stating the budgeted range upfront is best.

How are the support position and sysadmin position hirings going?

DHH: Do you guys think you’ll stop growing at 37 people?

I was happy to see this posting.
When i first downloaded the new (new under 37s) campfire app I thought “What no push updates? Why would 37s just move the paid app into free space unaltered?”
Then I saw this posted and I was reminder of the 37s long view. Release ASAP, then iterate. In the case of the campfire app free is a new “feature” and will possible bump up subscriptions. New value enhancing features for web and mobile are forth coming.

The 37th employee will receive a lot of extra stuff comparing to other “signals” including 10% discount for all 37signals products :)

This is great! I would love to see native iPhone apps from 37signals. You guys might set another standard for mobile apps.
