Senior Android Engineer
- Bring new features from conception to completion, helping people around the world to learn more effectively by contributing code to our Android app.
- Be mindful of the “big picture” from both a technical perspective and a business one, keeping yourself and your teammates on track in terms of “building the right thing” and “building the thing right”.
- Exercise a high degree of autonomy and technical authority on a team that trusts you to do what's right for our users but is there to support you when you need it.
- Contribute to a culture of excellence within the Mobile Pod, setting high standards for candor and mutual accountability, and striking a careful balance between velocity and quality.
- Advocate for initiatives that will improve developer experience for Brilliant's engineers and user experience for Brilliant's users.
- Frequently ask: How does this impact our learners?
Who are you?
- You have at least 4 years of professional experience in software engineering, including professional experience with Kotlin and with the Android ecosystem.
- You got into programming because you’re motivated by solving users’ problems.
- You enjoy solving technical challenges in a way simple enough for an intern to understand and build upon. You avoid introducing complex, novel, or "clever" solutions. You write code for humans, not for computers.
- You're excited to collaborate closely with talented engineers, product managers, and designers. You enjoy solving problems as a team, pair-programming, and sharing knowledge. You want to be a mentor and to be mentored.
- You have deep experience with a few languages and frameworks, and you know what you do and do not like about them. You believe in using the right tool for the job — even when it’s an unfamiliar one, and especially when it's a boring one. You stay up-to-date with the latest technologies and patterns, recognizing the differences between a game-changer and a passing fad.
- You have a favorite product and can articulate your perspective on what makes using it delightful. You often think about how the products you use could be better.
- We use a systematic compensation framework. Salary scales are set each year for each job vertical, based on market data and company budget. Independently, managers level folks on their team, and those levels are mapped formulaically to our compensation scales.
- Additionally, we always make First and Best Offers — there is no negotiation (for new hires nor our existing teammates). This ensures that people are paid based on their expected contribution, rather than their negotiation skills.
- In San Francisco, NYC, and similar markets, the range for this role across the most likely levels for relevant candidates is $170-220k.
- We do apply a location-based adjustment in less competitive markets, typically 5-10%. Feel free to ask us about your particular location!
