What will you do everyday

As the first hire for Android Development at Suki, you will own and drive every aspect of the native Suki App on Android phones. You will be joining a team of iOS engineers (Swift) and front-end engineers (react, react-native, javascript). You will create our first Android experience and make it on par with our Chrome web and native iOS apps.

Ok, you're sold, but what are we looking for in the perfect candidate

  • Expertise: you know how to code. You understand our tech stack and can be productive with it. In other words, you've done this before.
  • Action oriented: You love to build. You know that perfect is the enemy of the good – you like to ship fast and quickly iterate.
  • Creativity: You enjoy listening to user feedback and then building product in novel ways. You're resourceful and enjoy finding alternate paths to success.
  • Problem solving: you use data to help point you in the correct direction. You optimize relentlessly. You think business and engineering problems are like puzzles and you stick with them until they are solved.
  • Humility: You're humble and love working in a team without ego to deliver products
  • Adaptability: You thrive in a fast-moving organization that uses light-weight process and cutting-edge technology to have a huge impact.
  • Confidence: You trust your abilities and you're ready to push yourself to the next level.


  • Should have built and shipped at least one Android app to the Google Play Store
  • Java experience a must. Kotlin experience a plus.
  • Familiarity with the voice/recorder APIs in Android a huge plus.

Requirements is such a strong word. We don't necessarily expect to find a candidate that has done everything listed, but you should be able to make a credible case that you've done most of it and are ready for the challenge of adding some new things to your resume.

Please note: this position is in Redwood City, CA and at this time we cannot support relocation or visa transitions. Accordingly, applicants must be currently authorized to work in the United States on a full-time basis.
