The ideal candidate has a track record of having built multiple high-performance, stable, scalable Android apps that have been successfully shipped to customers in production. Your work and your approach to work are exemplary: you drive best practices and set standards for your team. You are a key influencer in your team’s strategy and contribute significantly to team planning. You show good judgement making trade-offs between immediate and long-term business needs. You are a collaborative leader that makes other engineers and team members around you more productive, by sharing your knowledge, and helping to tie-break key technical decisions.

  • You make high impact decisions driving how and what software gets built. Your decisions are often right, and you are persuasive in delivering your suggestions and ideas to your team.
  • You mentor junior engineers, overseeing their designs, code quality, and integration into a team. Your success is judged as much on your own productivity as on the positive impact you have on engineers around you.


  • Minimum of 5+ years of Mobile apps development experience (Kotlin preferred).
  • Experience with software engineering best practices (e.g., unit testing, design patterns, building maintainable code, performance tuning)
  • Deep understanding of the nuances of the Android SDK, different versions of Android.
