About the Android Team
We're a small team working on an app with 80mil active monthly users. You'll work on everything from UI to API communication to database storage. We work together with teams across the company, including design, backend, and product, to make a solid app that our users love and use every day.
We believe in continuously improving our skills and codebase, work/life balance, and doing things right over doing them fast. We're looking for engineers who share this view and are excited about writing quality code, trying new technologies, and playing well with others.
You'll work on challenges including:
Building a user interface that looks good and works well anywhere, from the largest tablets to the smallest phones. Our users love to read or listen on all their devices, and it's our job to make their experience flawless at any size.
Syncing data between our backend and our app's database quickly and efficiently to keep the interface smooth and responsive.
Building a full-featured offline reading and listening experience so that users can read anytime, anywhere.
Honoring best practices and encouraging maintainability (but we use interesting libraries like Rx Java when well suited)
Pushing the platform to the limit, discovering and filing bugs with the Android Open Source Project
Identifying the best third party libraries to get the job done or creating home grown solutions -- our team has written our own logging system, bug tracking tools, and even threading annotations
