Remote iOS Developer | ML Autofill as a Service Product


Hello lovely folks of Brisvegas – it’s around about this time each and every year in Melbourne that I consider a move to your fair and sunshine-y city. (Especially now in lockdown). Let me tell you some more about this equally sunshine-y remote opportunity with a Melbourne headquartered scale up I’m working with…

affix are proud as punch to be partnering again with our mates at Fillr to find the next iOS Developer to join their team. Finding the right person is more important to this business than where you are located, so we are open to people living anywhere in Australia for this one.

But first, let me introduce you to Fillr!
Built from the ground-up to solve the issue of converting on mobile, Fillr is an ultra intelligent data exchange platform with a 95% + accuracy that is proven to be more accurate than Google/Apple’s autofill offerings.

This is an exciting time to be joining Fillr as they are embarking a new journey after merging with Rakuten Americas who are a global leader in internet services that empower individuals, communities, businesses and society. Founded in Tokyo in 1997 as an online marketplace, Rakuten has expanded to offer services in e-commerce, fintech, digital content and communications to approximately 1.4 billion members around the world.

What is ‘autofill as a service’ you might ask? ​
Behind their simple façade, forms are deceptively complicated. A jumbled mess of code in a multitude of formats, they are constantly changing and updating. Fillr, already the world’s most accurate autofill, continues to improve through machine learning and internal benchmarking platforms and regression frameworks.

As you can imagine Mobile has become their primary means of connecting to the digital world — over the past 5 years mobile is increasingly the first screen for digital commerce. *Fun fact* 40 percent of e-retail traffic now comes from mobile phones. However, despite the exponential growth in mobile shopping, conversion rates continue to fall as customers continue to abandon their shopping carts during the checkout process. Seven out of 10 people stop short of completing their online purchases. 

Fillr believes that the key to addressing this is in tapping into technology innovations to improve customer experience and reduce significant frictions in mobile commerce, such as complicated checkout forms. And this technology needs to work on every app, every browser, every checkout page and every form.

As they grow they support more and more of the world. Currently, Fillr supports over 12+ languages including English, Russian, German, French, Italian, Korean, Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, Portuguese — more on the way!

This is where you would come in…
The Fillr user experience has been thoroughly tested and can be customized to integrate seamlessly with the existing UX of their clients applications. The default UI is based on Android and iOS native design standards and can be easily adapted to a company’s style and guidelines and can also be integrated into desktop browser extensions for all popular browsers.

In order to continue to grow the product globally, Fillr are hiring an iOS Developer who will join a team currently serving large US and European clients. Working with the Head of Mobile Engineering and the other Mobile/ Android Developer in the team, you will be responsible for all things iOS.

What’s in it for you

They believe communication is the key to delivering on that and have an open culture of sharing knowledge, ideas and laughs from all parts of the business. Everyone is encouraged to share their creativity on all aspects of the business including product and they ensure all ideas are treated equally.
