We are looking for a mid-level Android engineer to join our mobile engineering team. We develop both Android and iOS native mobile applications used by over 100,000 people across the world. We are constantly looking to improve our platform and branch out onto new devices (Android Wear, IoT) to deliver added value for our users.

About you

The kind of engineer we are looking for will likely identify as a:

  • Polyglot that gets a special satisfaction from picking up a new language, framework, or tool
  • Problem solver that does not relent until digging and discovering an issue’s root cause
  • Collaborator that thrives in a social, transparent, and “got your back” team environment
  • Person who cares deeply that their work realizes positive outcomes for our world

You probably also have:

  • Strong opinions on what makes certain languages/tools/frameworks good, bad, or ugly
  • Sufficient experience with your favorite language/tool/framework to describe its faults and shortcomings
  • A pet software design principle that drives you nuts when not used

  • node.js, iOS, Android
  • Java, Objective-C, JavaScript, PHP, Ruby
  • AWS EC2, S3, DynamoDB, RDS, OpsWorks, CircleCI
  • JUnit, Espresso, Mocha, Chai, ServerSpec


There are always exceptions, and we hire exceptional individuals, so nothing on this list is strictly required. However, if many of these sound like you, then we are probably a good fit.

  • Bachelor of Science degree (think CS, CE, EE, math, physics, …)
  • Strong foundation in Computer Science – data structures, algorithms, etc.
  • Shipped an app to the Android and/or iOS app store
  • Wrote automated tests for mobile platforms
  • Familiar with various Open Source libraries such as Dagger, RxJava, Retrofit…
  • Created and/or maintained a test-build-deploy pipeline (CI + CD/automated delivery)

  • Great new office space overlooking the National Cathedral and next to District Taco!
  • Fantastic health, dental, and vision
