We are a team of fun, motivated, and experienced product and engineering entrepreneurs who are working to make an actual and meaningful impact in the world. Our current Android Engineer is looking to transition to working full-time on the Backend, so we're looking for an experienced Android Engineer to take over ownership of the Android codebase from him.
Your responsibilities will include:
Who are you?
You feel great joy when problem solving (or perhaps after successfully solving a problem). You're able to break a problem down into its component parts, understand it completely, and brainstorm with others on multiple solutions – weighing solutions against each other within the constraints of the system. You can effectively translate a solution from thought to clean, idiomatic code.
You've worked professionally for at least four years as an Android Engineer. You're more than comfortable with Java and its quirks, you're familiar with object-oriented design concepts, and you strive to write well-thought-out code. You recognize that overly-loosely-coupled code can be just as bad as tightly-coupled code, and you strike a balance in between. Your eye for detail applies both to matching mocks as well as perceiving potential edge cases. Lastly, you've built something you're proud of that you're excited to show us.
