    We are a diverse team from around the world, working together on a mission to set a new standard of trust online.  Join our Mobile team as a remote Mobile Technical Lead and help shape the DuckDuckGo iOS and Android experiences.

    As part of our growing team, you will be collaborating with team members at all levels to identify and close major gaps in our products.  Examples of projects you might work on include: building out and improving mobile content blocking, improving installation conversion, or running experiments to investigate and improve the usability of our mobile apps. You will be directly responsible for mobile application features, taking ownership over product maintenance, and driving improvements in both our iOS and Android applications.

    We are fully remote and seek to empower our team to be self-directed and self-motivated in their projects. If that seems awesome and you like the idea of our core values -- build trust, question assumptions, and validate direction -- you'll fit right in!


    What you will do:


    Lead development of projects by taking vague problems, scoping them into high impact projects, and executing them against a set of success criteria

    Play a key role in improving the software architecture

    Take responsibility for solving product issues – large and small.

    Implement mobile solutions to improve our iOS and Android apps directly.

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

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

    What we are looking for:

    Significant cross-platform mobile engineering experience in iOS and Android (5+ years)

    Expertise working on at least one large native iOS and one large native android mobile application

    Effective project management skills

    Familiarity with MVC/MVVM concepts and how they apply to mobile applications

    Familiarity with mobile threading and memory management

    Ability to develop and use complicated data structures and algorithms. This includes understanding the fundamentals, as well as navigating and improving existing code.

    Ability to develop effective UX solutions through user feedback loops, leveraging both quantitative and qualitative metrics.

    Creative problem solvers and risk takers. You like to take initiative in pushing a project forward but know when to get others involved.

    Strong communication skills. You can validate and communicate your decisions clearly.

    Other things to know:


    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.



    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.
