  • Collaborate closely with our product manager and the other engineers

What you bring:

  • You have 3+ years experience in native android development
  • You have the ability to turn ideas into code that you are proud of
  • You have hands on experience with Java and the Android SDK
  • Experience with Android UI, design principles, patterns and standard methodologies
  • You really care about testing and have experience with testing suites
  • You take ownership of your code, and you believe that also means making sure it does the right thing in production
  • You not only care about your work, but also about the people you’re doing it with

  • Awesome quarterly team off-sites with talks, workshops and hackathon projects
  • Opportunities and support for your career development in the direction you chose. We have both a lot of in-house expertise and desire to facilitate skill sharing and mentoring, and if it can’t be found ‘in-house’ then we will find an external guide or mentor to bring in.
  • Fair compensation package that reflects your skills and experience

  • Flexible working hours and location (two no-meeting days per week) and possibility for reduced hours
  • All the tools you need for an enjoyable work experience (shared books, technical equipment, etc)
