Android Engineer

We are a Bangalore, India based company. We are currently working remotely, and intend to, till December 2021. All of our team currently works out of different locations in India. We are happy to receive applications from folks anywhere in the India time zone.  

We’re a small team that focuses on the big things, punching way above our weight. Our craft is important to us, and we hone it and utilise it in the context of our work. We invest in ourselves and care about each other — a great team is multiplicative and not additive!

To this end, we maintain a playbook of our lore and practices. We’re product engineers and not just software engineers. We understand that great software is only a small part of value-creation. We work with our designers, often in the same room, to rapidly iterate and validate our assumptions.

We believe in the DevOps movement, and imbibe the principles in all our work — yes, even Android engineering! We review code with care and guidance, not as an afterthought, but every day as part of our workflow. We regularly share our work and learnings and engage with the community.

We are very aware of the reality during the pandemic that we often end up "living at work" as opposed to "working from home". To that end, we give time-off when needed. We normalise taking small breaks during the day or being available only 70% on some days. We also have carefully constructed hardware & computer equipment guidelines including a one time WFH fund to help put together a stronger infrastructure at home.

As conditions change for how we work remotely, our guidelines will evolve to make sure everyone is comfortable.
