Android Software Engineer

What we’re building: 

Greenlight helps parents raise financially-smart kids with a debit card for kids that parents manage from their phone. The new way for parents to give money and pay allowances to their children, Greenlight is safer, easier, and more flexible than using cash. Parents can choose the exact stores where their kids can spend and how much money they can spend. With these safeguards and supervision, kids learn to make their own financial decisions. Parents can encourage saving by setting an interest rate--paid by the parent--that is well-above any they would find at a bank. Kids learn about compound interest from seeing their own savings grow meaningfully. To-date, kids have saved over $5M with Greenlight. 


Technologies we use:

  • Kotlin
  • Java
  • RxJava
  • MVI architecture
  • Retrofit

Who we’re looking for: 

You are a mobile engineer with experience building and shipping native Android applications. You understand application design and development, but you also understand and want to participate in the deployment and operational phases of the SDLC. You have proven debugging and performance testing skills. You are comfortable working in a fast moving, high growth environment, and you want to do more than write code. 


What you’ll be doing:

  • Design, build, and maintain mobile applications and services across the Greenlight platform
  • Enhance existing services and applications to increase availability, reliability, and scalability
  • Lead effort to drive overall code quality
  • Collaborate with various members of the engineering team to build new features and services at scale
  • Improve engineering tooling, process, and standards to enable faster, more consistent, more reliable, and highly repeatable application delivery
  • Remain engaged with the latest technology trends and understand operational challenges to continually evolve application delivery processes
  • Support technology decisions based on performance metrics and operational SLAs
  • Provide guidance and best practices around security for applications 

You bring:

  • BS degree in Computer Science or equivalent work experience
  • 2+ years software development experience
  • Experience working on a large scale Android application
  • The ability to ship mission critical features with high confidence
  • Demonstrated desire to work collaboratively with a high performing team
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Experience with version control tools
  • Knowledge of automated build systems
  • Comprehensive understanding of Agile scrum development process
  • Familiarity with issue and project tracking tools
