macOS Software Engineer for Setapp

  • Kyiv
  • Full Time

We are looking for a proactive macOS Engineer to join the Setapp team.

We want to make it easier for Mac users to discover new Mac applications — the ones they were searching for or the ones they didn’t even know they needed in their lives. Setapp is our ambitious young product that lets the user get unlimited access to the library of applications right on their Mac.

For a subscription fee, it gives you the opportunity to use all these quality apps you’ve always wanted to try out — without the need to buy and install each app individually.

If you decide to join, you’ll work in a great cross-functional team with 4 other macOS Engineers, as well as web developers, QA, designers, analysts, and copywriters.

You’re our dream candidate for this job if you have speed, agility, and curiosity — we work fast, create new features for the product, constantly improve the old ones, and conduct experiments simultaneously. If that sounds exciting — be sure to apply, even if you don’t have desktop development experience. We have a great track record of bringing mobile engineers up to speed fast :)


The macOS team is in charge of the desktop app itself.

You’ll work on a standalone app that lets the user discover new apps, an agent that runs in the background and tracks the usage of all apps in Setapp, as well as UI part — Menu Bar App with shortcuts to important functions.

Here are the tasks that will be yours after you join:

  • Drive our new Collections feature to the new horizons
  • Brainstorm and develop a new product from scratch
  • Improving existing components


  • 3+ years of macOS/iOS development experience (Objective-C and Swift knowledge)
  •  Understanding of macOS/iOS system structure (what are the bundles/packages, where user files are stored, what are user defaults, what is agent/daemon, app bundle structure, etc.)
  • Multithreading techniques (e.g. GCD)
  • Communicative, proactive person and an independent thinker
  • Intermediate level of English

As a Plus

  • XPC experience
  • Upper-intermediate level of English

Q: How can one identify a programmer?
A: They start counting from zero. But for real, a programmer usually knows more powers of two than a regular person.
