    Shape Perry Street’s mobile apps for a diverse global audience!

    Role overview

    Company Description

    Perry Street Software is Jack’d and SCRUFF. We are two of the world’s largest gay, bi, trans and queer social dating apps on iOS and Android. Our brands reach more than 20 million members worldwide so members can connect, meet and express themselves on a platform that prioritizes privacy and security.

    Perry Street is proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer. We do not discriminate based upon race, religion, color, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, genetic information, national origin, ancestry, medical condition, disability, marital status, caregiver status, pregnancy, citizenship, age, military or veteran status, or other applicable legally protected characteristics.


    Job Description

    Perry Street Software is hiring a Localization Software Developer to help with an upcoming project requiring significant patience and extreme attention to detail. This project will provide a solid foundation for the principles of localization architecture.

    This position is an hourly contract position, with a minimum of 20 hours per week, and the potential for additional hours based on the outcome of the initial project. The hourly rate is up to $30USD/hour.

    What you'll do:

    • Refresh and update the current iOS localization system with the new scheme developed in coordination with the Globalization Manager.
    • Learn about the localization (l10n) of mobile apps.
    • Gain experience using Xcode, Git, and GitHub to perform a large code refactor.
    • Rigorously follow a naming convention to create new localization keys for items stored in a file.
    • Locate and replace these keys where they appear in the code.

    Who you are:

    • Someone with at least 1 year of full-time or freelance work experience.
    • At least 1 year experience working with code, ideally a compiled language such as Java/Kotlin or Swift. Bootcamp/other vocational programs ok!
    • Technical and detail-oriented, with copious reserves of diligence, patience, and attention to detail.
    • Experienced in conceptualizing complex systems and working within those systems, adapting as needed.
    • Interested in languages and linguistics.
    • Proficient in at least one language other than English.

    You have technical experience in:

    • Git, GitHub, and Xcode
    • Data entry and management
    • Naming conventions and cataloguing systems
    • Swift and associated file formats
    • Localization experience is a major plus


    Additional Information

    All your information will be kept confidential according to EEO guidelines.
