  • Strong background in development in Android and Kotlin development specifically.
  • Deep understanding of Android UI and “backend” mobile development.
  • Demonstrated experience building high-quality mobile apps from scratch all the way to production and ongoing maintenance.
  • Verifiable long-term ownership of public-facing applications through multiple releases.

Bonus Qualifications

  • Experience with custom/specialized Android devices, AOSP or other embedded Linux.
  • Proven leadership in mobile development.
  • Meaningful contribution and ownership of a highly-popular, heavily downloaded app.
