We’re looking for an AndroidDeveloper with a passion for building complex but dependable apps so slick, beautiful, and user-friendly that it pains our users to put their phones down. As an AndroidDeveloper on our Mobile team, you’ll get a chance to steer the technical direction of our app, provide guidance on the intricacies of the Android platform, help grow our team, and build features that leave our users in awe.


Why work with us?

  • We’re a fun-loving, passionate, and highly collaborative team
  • We believe in moving quickly
  • We’re committed to achieving technical excellence in everything we do
  • You’ll meet our good friend Jenkins who loves shipping code everyday


What you’ll do

  • Collaborate, engage in design/architecture discussions, and share your ideas while building the next generation of features for the Achievers platform
  • Be curious and inquisitive—about everything
  • Live in Github creating pull requests, reviewing code, merging branches, and generally be a great team player by seeking out and providing feedback
  • Innovate by participating in hackathons and initiatives important to you and your team
  • Continuously integrate clean, scalable, robust, testable code
  • Shape, build, and evolve our growing API responsible for powering our platform, iOS, and Android apps
  • Push the boundaries of what’s possible by tackling challenges in architecture, scalability, security, and performance
  • Contribute to the growth of our team by providing coaching to junior developers
  • Have a chance to ship code daily—yes, daily

Why we’d want to work with you?

  • You have a passion for building world-class software
  • You’re positive thinking and find opportunities instead of problems
  • You have superb technical chops. But, you’re always striving to improve
  • You believe software should be just as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside


Do you have what it takes? What we’re looking for:

  • Bc. or Masters in Computer Science or related field
  • 3+ years professional experience
  • You’ve built more than 1 Android app and you’re confident in your ability to architect clean, testable, maintainable API powered code
  • You’ve moved on from Eclipse, use Android Studio, can’t get enough Material Design, proficient in Java, and automate everything in Gradle
  • Believe in using the right tool for the job whether that’s installing a third-party library or writing one yourself
  • A great design eye, paying close attention to the smallest of UI and UX details
  • You’re efficient to the point where you can (but smart enough not to) automate yourself out of work
  • Confident in object modeling and OOP concepts
  • Strong in networking & concurrency concepts and architectural patterns
  • Comfortable in a UNIX / Linux environment
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills

 Or even better:

  • Comfortable architecting features up and down the entire stack including database (MySQL), server & client-side application, and API design
  • Profiling performance and memory leaks
  • Experience in a server-side programming language such as Javascript/Node.js, PHP, Python, or Ruby
  • Web development experience, especially with React / Redux, Backbone, SASS, and Node.js
  • At least one published app (and/or publicly available source)
