job summary:

DESCRIPTION

We're a team of self-starting, mission-driven individuals with a passion for purposeful innovation (and of course, office pups). That said, we don't take ourselves too seriously, love to celebrate, and put people at the center of everything we do, whether it's organizing a team lunch or designing a new touchscreen animation. As we continue to grow rapidly, we're always on the lookout for scrappy, problem-solving, big thinkers to come aboard!

We are always seeking great software developers to build future versions of our software. Our ideal candidate, while having their areas of expertise, will not shy away from digging into any part: web UI, backend, firmware and mobile applications. We are a small and fun software team in a fast-growing hardware startup. Our customers love our product and you will play a crucial role in making them even happier. If you love thinking through new ideas and interactions, how to execute them in an innovative way and have a deep respect for user experience, come join our team!

As a Senior Android Developer, you are eager to stay on the bleeding-edge of the mobile market across a broad spectrum of industries. Your guidance and input drive architecture and functionality decisions. Whether you prefer providing mentorship to junior engineers or acting as a technical sounding board for all, this role invites seasoned engineers to exercise their deep expertise.
