Android Engineer

At Doist, our mission is to empower people with simple yet powerful tools.

We're a multidisciplinary, fully-remote, team that’s passionate about creating products, like Todoist and Twist, that improve people’s lives. We thrive on innovating new solutions to old productivity challenges and we seek to rethink how productivity tools are made.

Our Core Values

They are few, but they are mighty. From creating processes to decision-making and recruiting, we build our four core values into nearly every single thing we do.

  • Ambition. You aspire to put a dent in the universe. You set high standards for yourself and those around you. You solve issues that have a high impact on our customers and our company.

  • Mastery. You care deeply about the quality of your work. You’re continuously learning and pushing yourself to the limits of your ability. As a champion of your craft, you are also a champion of your well-being – you work intensely, then disconnect completely.

  • Independence. Others can trust that you’ll deliver on time. You keep your word and trust your teammates to do the same. You are proactive, take ownership, and remain accountable with little or no direction.

  • Communication. Your communication is clear, concise, and engaging. You keep others in the loop and never go radio silent. You speak respectfully and foster warm relationships through your interactions. You’re culturally and socially aware and can appropriately navigate social situations.

We invite you to visit our blog to learn more about us, our values, and how we work.

Your Role

As an Android Developer, you will join our seven-person Android team to help build the Android clients for Todoist and Twist. We’re continuously improving and evolving all aspects of our apps, so you’ll be closely working on new features, architectural improvements, maintenance and so on. This happens in close collaboration with other engineers, designers and Doisters from other teams. We strive to make the best possible native Android apps, utilizing the latest Android patterns while providing a consistent experience across platforms. Our apps are fast, calm and efficient. We believe that good foundations are better than quick fixes. Let’s work together to make the best productivity and communication apps on Android!

On a day-to-day basis, you’ll:

  • Implement features: From proposal, through specification and implementation, to maintenance. You're encouraged and expected to propose things that you think can be a good addition to the products.

  • Review code: We’re strong proponents of code reviews. All our code has to pass a review. And you will soon start reviewing pull requests as well!

  • Improve the health of the codebase: We’re mindful of creeping technical debt. Reviews help a lot, but we also dedicate one day per week to housekeeping tasks.

  • Provide feedback: We work in monthly cycles. At the beginning of each cycle, the team plans and discusses the upcoming work. We provide feedback to each other, trying to find challenges and unknowns as early as possible.

  • Be a Hero: Each cycle there’s one Android Hero. As a Hero, you'll be working closely with support to triage and fix bugs from users, keep an eye on the telemetry, prepare releases and occasionally help with other unexpected tasks.

  • Lead a squad: From time to time you might be a squad leader who bears the responsibility for the success of the project. In practical terms, you plan the squad work and orchestrate its execution. You balance this activity with hands-on work within the same squad.

About You

It's important to us that the person we hire will excel in this role. Here are some core things we believe will set you up for success:

  • You have a deep understanding of the Android framework. You know how comparing intents works and the difference between targetSdkVersion and compileSdkVersion.

  • You’re fluent in Kotlin and Java programming languages and understand the advanced concepts of both languages.

  • You’ve built advanced UIs with the Android View system. Experience with Jetpack Compose is a plus!

  • You have good knowledge of algorithms, data structures and software engineering practices. You can apply SOLID principles and understand the difference between MVP and MVI.

  • You’re familiar with basic computer science concepts like the big-O notation and know when it’s relevant to your work.

  • You have hands-on experience with creating high-quality consumer apps.

  • You’re interested in learning from and contributing to the Android community.

  • Bonus points if you’ve worked with Kotlin Multiplatform!
