You love code. You love to take raw ideas and build great products in Android. You know swift is imperfect, but you embrace its functional side and genuinely enjoy coding with it. You might like to talk about obscure computer science topics, but really, you just want to write simple code and ship new products and features to customers (or improve existing ones).
You love great UX. You spend most of your time coding, but you also have an eye for great design and a feel for great UX. Maybe you were once a designer (or still are) or maybe your creative outlet has always been the code. Either way, you care about more than just the code.
You love learning new things. You love researching new tech and driving forward with the implementation details. Your focus is on Android code, but you can dig in wherever needed. React, Hybrid development, Node.js, Python, CSS, build tools, shell scripts, you name it. If you don't already know it, you're ready to learn it.
You can balance lots of concerns. Frontend apps have to take into account performance (using networks and devices that we can't control), customer demands, A/B tests, UX research, code quality, a rapidly changing ecosystem of languages and modules, and the list goes on. And we actually want to ship things too! You can balance those demands without getting overwhelmed and keep the needle moving forward.
You love helping others. You love sharing knowledge with the rest of your team, building shared tooling for other engineers, giving back to the open-source community, and directly helping customers.
Things You Might Do
Here Are Some Things You'll Probably Do
Research, guide, and execute Android architecture changes, including but by no means limited to REST / GraphQL. Build reusable components with modular views, manage data on the client and test everything. Measure and resolve performance bottlenecks. Refactor or improve existing code. Work closely with our product, design, and UX teams to create amazing and intuitive experiences that make it effortless to connect different apps together. Help put tools, processes, and documentation in place to improve our code quality. Review code written by other team members or other teams. Ship to hundreds of thousands of users every day while having lots of autonomy in terms of code and feature ownership. Work with complex and varied data structures (APIs can be a little, uh, eccentric). Share what you know and learn either one-on-one or with lightning talks to the group. Give back to the community via open source and blog posts. Experiment: this is a startup-like environment so everything can change as we experiment with doing more custom partnership work
