Senior Android Developer

Doist

Job description

At Doist, we strive to build not only amazing products but amazing groups of people. Our multidisciplinary teams are passionate about creating products like Todoist and Twist that improve people’s lives. They thrive on innovating new solutions to old productivity challenges and seek to change how productivity tools are made.

Doist is a global, remote-first company and we believe that our way of working– independent of borders and time zones– is the future. As part of our Android team, you’ll play a key role in helping us inspire the workplace of the future.

Your Role

As a Senior Android Developer, you will join our five-person Android team to help build the Twist for Android client. In addition to improving the app and implementing new features, you'll be working closely with designers as well as developers from other teams in order to have a consistent experience across platforms, while making the best possible Android app that also adheres to Material design. You’ll also participate in making important product decisions that help ensure that Twist allows teams to work calmly and efficiently. Twist is an evolving and fast-changing product, but we believe that a good foundation is better than quick fixes. You’ll help us solidify that foundation and grow Twist for Android to new heights.


Benefits

  • Knowledge of algorithms, data structures and software engineering practices.
  • Demonstrated passion for creating high-quality consumer apps.

Who we are and what we value

At Doist, we’ve always questioned the conventional way of doing things. While other startups live and die on VC funding, we’ve built our company independently and sustainably. While other companies seek a quick exit by acquisition, our team doubles down on our long-term vision.

Our mission is to inspire the workplace of the future by creating simple yet powerful productivity tools that promote a calmer, more balanced, more fulfilling way of working and living. We value simplicity over complexity, democracy over hierarchy, and craft over credentials.

The Doist team’s core values are: responsibility + independence, passion + craftsmanship, awareness + balance, team-player, respect + professionalism, clear communication, focus + impact, self-mastery, and courage.
