Rob Keniger Resumé

Phone: 0419 097 049


I'm a very experienced iOS and Mac developer, having worked with these technologies for more than ten years, for multiple companies and in diverse business areas.

I have significant additional experience with the full HTML5 stack; I've been building web pages since the early days of the web and have built two cross-platform JavaScript libraries from scratch.

I have specialised knowledge of encryption and reverse-engineering, as well as a great deal of user interface design and implementation experience. I am highly skilled in Photoshop.

I've managed small teams of other developers and have worked in various project environments, including Agile. I'm intimately familiar with all development toolchain technologies such as source control, unit testing and continuous integration.

I'm passionate about iOS and mobile development and love working on iOS or OS X projects. I'm a very fast learner and love learning new technologies and APIs. I'm currently learning Swift. I have an excellent memory and I'm great at finding innovative solutions to difficult problems. Building great user interfaces is very important to me and I care about the location of every pixel and the smoothness of every animation.

I'm a founding member of Brisbane CocoaHeads, a face-to-face group that meets to discuss Mac and iOS programming.

I have excellent spoken and written English language skills. I'm told I'm easy to get along with and that I work well with people.

I have dual UK/Australian citizenship.


10 years experience with Cocoa/Objective-C on both Mac and iOS, and 15+ years experience the HTML/CSS/JavaScript stack. Experience with many other languages.

Extensive experience across the entire software development life cycle and the use of tools such as unit testing, continuous integration and code review on a daily basis.

Used to working in a Scrum/Agile environment.

Currently ranked 4th out of all #cocoa tag contributors on Stack Overflow, with trusted user status.
