We create open source software that puts users in control over their online browsing experience. Our desktop and mobile products, such as Adblock Plus, Adblock Browser and Flattr, help sustain and grow a fair, open web, because they give users control while providing user-friendly monetization. Our most popular product, Adblock Plus (ABP), is currently used on over 100 million devices.

What you’ll do

  • Work on Android SDK, LibAdblockPlus and chromium integration.

After your morning coffee, you’ll be expected to...

  • Develop Adblock Plus SDK and its integration using your Java/Kotlin, JavaScript and C++ skills

  • Solve problems such as optimizing memory usage and performance for our mobile partners, and of course striving for a high adblocking quality

  • Ensure the stability of our SDKs across all platforms and partners

  • Ensure that partner requests are answered and implemented, and that partners are satisfied

  • Keep up with changes related to Chromium versions and translate these into the required changes for our libraries

  • Work with other team members for code reviews and coordination of QA

What you bring:

  • 4+ years of software development experience

  • Ability to solve compatibility problems using Kotlin, Java, C++, JavaScript and Python

  • Understanding of how the web technically works

  • Comprehensive knowledge of the Android SDK and OS

  • Experience working with complex software projects

  • Experience with concurrency/multithreaded development (both C++ and Java/Kotlin)

  • Experience with Building Systems (e.g. GNU make, gradle)

  • Experience of cross platform native development (Android, iOS, Linux)

  • Experience of UI and Unit-testing for Android

  • Knowledge of version control systems (git)

  • Fluent in both verbal and written English

  • Proactive problem solver with a good attitude

It’s awesome, but not required, if you have...

  • Knowledge about Java or other programming languages

  • Experience working on open source projects

  • Understanding of the ad tech landscape

  • The ability to speak Mandarin (not at all required, but would be amazing)

A little bit about the team you’ll work with

The Distribution Partners team works on growing eyeo’s number of users by finding and collaborating with partners that help us scale our user base. Our partners include leading players in the browser and OEM markets; we collaborate closely with them to integrate ad-blocking technologies into their projects. We do this by providing, maintaining, and constantly updating the SDKs that make it easy for our partners to integrate with us. We add features and functionality based on partner feedback and new trends in the markets around us.

    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.

    Loco2 is looking for an experienced mobile engineer to help us deliver a world-class mobile experience through our hybrid iOS and Android apps, combining fully native views with our single-page application (see below).

    This is a full-time position, working office hours, usually from 9.30-6 GMT. There’s flexibility in working hours and we offer a generous holiday allowance and a salary that reflects your experience.

    This is a remote position, although you may be required to visit the office in Old Street to attend business meetings, events, and so on.

    At Loco2 we care deeply about building an inclusive, open and supportive work environment. We behave with respect for people and the planet and are seeking a diverse range of candidates that share these values.

    About us

    We're a small, passionate and cosmopolitan team, with a healthy remote-first culture and an office in London. Our success is built on trust, empathy and shared knowledge, with our users at the centre of what we do. We're proud to have an average rating of 9 out of 10 on Trustpilot after nearly 50,000 reviews.

    We’ve been selling tickets since 2012 (read our full story here), and we’re growing rapidly as the business matures. Our goal is to scale effectively whilst continuing to delight our users.

    Our culture

    Why join us

    • We have high standards for our code. If you care about security, performance, and reliability, you'll fit in with our team.

    • We strive to learn and improve together in a supportive environment as the wider tech ecosystem evolves.

    • We offer flexible hours and a well-designed remote working culture built on trust. Work around your schedule and when you’re most productive.

    • Our days are not full of meetings and needless distractions. Allowing others to achieve flow is a big part of supporting each other. We strive for a balance between collaboration and focused independent work that works for everyone.

    • Everyone is encouraged to ask questions, think creatively and suggest new working practices. We have a small team so your voice will be heard.

    Tech stack

    • Our current mobile applications present the website on mobile devices in embedded web-views. We’re sticking with this hybrid approach (i.e., we don’t intend to have fully native apps any time soon) but are now transitioning our traditional multi-page web application to a React-powered single-page application (SPA).

    • Once we’ve transitioned to the SPA, more functionality and UX elements will be consistent across our mobile website and applications, but there will remain areas where we’ll need to use native functionality. One of Loco2’s main goals is to be useful to customers when they are travelling, and building an exceptional mobile UX that feels truly native is one of our biggest goals for the future.

    Whilst we don’t expect you to be a master of everything, you should have some familiarity with our mobile stack:

    • A React + TypeScript SPA

    • A hybrid iOS app written in Swift

    • A hybrid Android app written in Kotlin

    Other things you might get involved with, if you wanted to, include:

    • A traditional multi-page web application written in Ruby on Rails, using CoffeeScript and SCSS

    • A Ruby library for communicating with train-booking APIs

    • AWS-hosted Docker infrastructure, with continuous delivery

    About you

    We're looking for a senior engineer with at least a few years of professional mobile application development experience. Our definition of "professional" includes:

    • Taking pride in our work

    • Writing automated tests for (most of) our code

    • Keeping things consistent (e.g., code linting)

    • Constructive peer reviews

    • Writing clear, modular, maintainable code

    • You should also be familiar with our front-end tech stack. It's important that you be comfortable working on the iOS and Android parts of our codebase. You should also have some skill with React and TypeScript.

    Our ideal candidate will also:

    • Work hours that have some overlap with London daytime

    • Be motivated by Loco2's mission

    • Speak English fluently

    • Be happy with a salary within the range of £55,000 to 70,000 (or equivalent in another currency)

    • Be comfortable reading and writing clear, declarative English sentences. Because we work remotely and have a lot of written documentation, good communication is just as important as good code.

    • Have a keen appetite for self-improvement and growth, but won't hesitate to ask for help when needed

    • Strive to discover and understand the root cause of problems

    • Suggest new and improved solutions, rather than treating the symptoms
