    We're a multidisciplinary, fully remote team that’s passionate about creating products, like Todoist and Twist, that improve people’s lives. We thrive on innovating new solutions to old productivity challenges and we seek to rethink how productivity tools are made.

    When you become a Doister, you’re not only joining a global, remote-first company, but a team of 60+ people who value:

    • Feeling empowered to achieve their ambitions

    • Inclusivity, open-mindedness, and diversity

    • Making long-term, high-impact decisions, even if they’re harder

    • We invite you to visit our blog to learn more about us, our values, and how we work.


    Your role

    As a Senior Android Developer, you will join our five-person Android team to help build the Twist for Android client. In addition to improving the app and implementing new features, you'll be working closely with designers as well as developers from other teams in order to have a consistent experience across platforms, while making the best possible Android app that also adheres to Material design.

    You’ll also participate in making important product decisions that help ensure that Twist allows teams to work calmly and efficiently.

    Twist is an evolving and fast-changing product, but we believe that a good foundation is better than quick fixes. You’ll help us solidify that foundation and grow Twist for Android to new heights.

    • A deep understanding of the Android framework, Kotlin and Java programming languages.

    Benefits


    We’re bootstrapped, profitable, and committed to building a sustainable company that will grow for decades to come. We’ve built a benefits package that invests in our employee’s long-term personal and professional growth and well-being. Here’s a sample of what that includes:

    • Work-Life balance. That means 8 hours of work, 5 days each week (for a total of 40 hours) because the time you spend outside of work is just as important as the time you spend working.

    • Flexible schedule and location. This is a fully remote position, so you can work from wherever you please and on a schedule that works best for you. All you need is a computer and access to a stable internet connection (which we sponsor!).

    • Generous paid vacation. 40 days of paid time off to use however you like (vacation, national holidays, etc.).

    • Paid parental leave. 18 weeks of paid maternity leave and 5 weeks of paid paternity/adoption leave.

    • Education stipend. You’ll have a monthly budget to buy books, courses, and other resources you need to continue learning and developing.

    • Competitive compensation.

    And much more!

    We are a diverse team from around the world, on a mission to make DuckDuckGo the company people trust most with their online privacy, and we want your help!

    Join our team as a Senior Mobile Engineer and help shape the technology that powers the DuckDuckGo search experience.

    As part of our growing team you will collaborate with team members at all levels to identify and close major gaps in our products. Examples of projects you might work on include: expanding and improving mobile content blocking, running experiments to measure and improve user conversion and usability within our mobile applications. You will take direct responsibility of mobile application features, drive improvements, and own product maintenance.

    What you will do:

    • Lead projects from proposal through postmortem, assessing vague problems, proposing high impact solutions, and executing them against a set of success criteria.

    • Play a key role in improving the software architecture.

    • Step up to resolve product issues – large and small.

    • Improve applications directly by proposing and implementing mobile solutions.

    • Collaborate with peers remotely during product brainstorms, technical design discussions, pair programming sessions and code reviews.

    • Write pragmatic, performant, and testable code that works consistently across devices.

    What we are looking for:

    • Significant cross-platform engineering experience (5+ years), with experience working on at least one large native application on both iOS and Android.

    • Deep understanding of MV* concepts, mobile threading, and memory management and how they apply to mobile applications.

    • A fundamental understanding of complex data structures and algorithms, which enables you to develop and apply new solutions and confidently navigate and improve existing code.

    • Ability to leverage both quantitative and qualitative data and to collaborate with a cross-functional team to develop effective UX solutions.

    • Effective project management skills.

    • Creative problem solvers and risk takers. You like to take initiative to push projects forward but know when to involve others.

    • Excellent communication skills. You can validate your decisions and communicate them clearly.

    Other things to know:

    • While we leverage specific job titles for hiring purposes, we do not use them internally. Instead, we follow our own professional levels, with expectations for each level clearly defined across several dimensions.

    • We are a small, remote team in different time zones and communicate with a variety of tools throughout the day. You should feel comfortable with the intricacies of this type of work situation.

    • Sometimes we meet up! You can expect to travel at least 2x a year: once for our all-hands meetup and another for a team retreat (each ~4-5 days)

    • We want to have a major impact on raising the standard of trust online. To do this we believe in a focused approach, with company-wide objectives, and with each team member working on a single top priority at a time.

    • Our work philosophy is built upon empowered project management. All team members have opportunities to run projects.

    • All projects are run transparently, and we encourage everyone to participate in areas of interest throughout the company. Anyone and everyone can (and should) ask questions and offer feedback around the product and internal projects.

    • We try to exemplify our values (build trust, question assumptions, and validate direction) in everything we do.

    • While this is a full-time job, we offer a flexible work arrangement with no core hours and expect an average commitment of 40 hours per week.

    • We support professional development of our team members through career advisory and a learning stipend, reinforcing our culture of growth and skill-building.

    DuckDuckGo does not work with any recruiting agencies or services. A big part of our culture is to work with each candidate on a one-to-one basis throughout our unique hiring process.
