Job Description

As a Software Engineer working on our Android app, you will be responsible for the mobile face
to our customer’s end users. From the News feed and Task list, to the custom UIs our
customers design on our platform, you must make them look good and perform well on any
modern Android device. Your scope extends from RESTful web API design on the server, to the
Android-specific renderer for our cross-platform user interface framework, to the final user
experience of the app.


Platform: You are at ease with Java as a language, as well as design patterns like MVC, anonymous
classes, dependency injection and threading. You could teach others what they are and how/why to
use them. You understand Android features like Adapters, AsyncTasks and Loaders.
Frameworks: You have heavy-duty experience with Activities and Fragments, especially as it relates
to things like their lifecycle, using ListViews and view recycling, and the use of XMLs and creating
views in code. You also have a good working knowledge of how to deal with UI fragmentation in
Android (ActionBarSherlock), networking frameworks (HttpClient, RestTemplate),
Loaders/AsyncTasks, accessing a database (SQLite) unit testing and dependency injection.

Responsibilities
● Get Android app enhancements that support a wide variety of devices to the Play Store on
schedule with our server releases
● Participate in the thoughtful design of RESTful web APIs that support both forward and
backward compatibility (either the app or the server could be updated first)
● Participate in software performance analysis and tuning
● Automate functional testing (Using Robotium) as well as testing for performance and
security
● Respond to and resolve emergent problems; write software and build automation to prevent
problem recurrence

Preferred Qualifications
● MS in Computer Science or related field/degree
