We make software that anyone can mold and shape to take on every challenge — from taking personal notes to running large companies. We’ve been building together since 2016 and are trusted by customers including Nike, Airbnb, Slack, Samsung, and more. We’re excited to be growing a team as diverse and creative as the millions of people we reach worldwide, and a company where everyone can thrive.
About The Role:
Mobile devices have reshaped personal computing—the power of a desktop now fits in our pockets. By giving everyone the building blocks to create their own tools, we’ll solve more problems wherever we go. A delightful, intuitive mobile experience: that’s our guiding light, and we need Android engineers to make it a reality.
What You’ll Do:
- You’ll work with the team to plan, shape, and build new product features for our Android app. This might include a better mobile text input experience.
- You’ll improve the performance, reliability, and polish of our Android app. This might involve rewriting a cache system to decrease startup time.
- You’ll help build and improve internal tools with simplicity and productivity in mind. For example, you might write a script that makes it easier to deploy new versions of our apps.
What We’re Looking For:
- Thoughtful problem-solving: For you, problem-solving starts with a clear and accurate understanding of the context. You can decompose tricky problems and work towards a clean solution, by yourself or with teammates. You’re comfortable asking for help when you get stuck.
- Ability to ship quality apps at scale: You can work with a team to build and maintain quality Android apps for a large audience. You’re familiar with Kotlin or Java and have handled UI, networking, and threading in those languages.
- Pragmatic and business-oriented: You care about business impact and prioritize projects accordingly. You’re not just going after cool stuff—you understand the balance between craft, speed, and the bottom line.
- Put users first: You think critically about the implications of what you’re building, and how it shapes real people’s lives. You understand that reach comes with responsibility for our impact—good and bad.
- Not ideological about technology: To you, technologies and programming languages are about tradeoffs. You may be opinionated, but you’re not ideological and can learn new technologies as you go.
- Empathetic communication: You communicate nuanced ideas clearly, whether you’re explaining technical decisions in writing or brainstorming in real time. In disagreements, you engage thoughtfully with other perspectives and compromise when needed.
- Team player: For you, work isn’t a solo endeavor. You enjoy collaborating cross-functionally to accomplish shared goals, and you care about learning, growing, and helping others to do the same.
- You’re proficient with any part of our technology stack: Kotlin, Swift, React, TypeScript, Node.js, Postgres.
- You’ve heard of computing pioneers like Ada Lovelace, Douglas Engelbart, Alan Kay, and others—and understand why we’re big fans of their work.
- You have interests outside of technology, such as in art, history, or social sciences.
