Take your first steps as an iOS Developer with us. Trivago offers a unique opportunity to work directly with people from all over the world.

We work on the trivago iOS App, downloaded on millions of iOS devices to date. The codebase is driven by our custom Redux implementation and written entirely in Swift. We write tests for every layer of our architecture including the frontend which we test with Snapshots. Processes like the release of our App are automated via workflows on CircleCI. We love to experiment with new ideas and share knowledge through regular pair programming, biweekly guild meetings as well as lunch & learn sessions.

Senior members of the team put in the time to support the growth of our junior developers. During your onboarding program our team will work together to ensure you become a productive contributor to the codebase. You’ll also be assigned a dedicated mentor who will support you with your career development.
