Senior Android Engineer
Remote (Work from Home)
Engineering and Data Science
Backstory, launching to the public soon, is creating a new category of entertainment called Memory Experiences. Users' Backstories (their organized, curated, and privately-shared collection of their past) are the foundation for us to deliver incredible memory experiences.
As a Senior Android Engineer, you will utilize your extensive native mobile experience to develop, release, and maintain
Android apps written in a combination of Java, Objective-C, and Flutter. You’ll be excited to learn Flutter if you haven’t had the opportunity to utilize the UI toolkit.
Working at Backstory
Backstory is a small, scrappy start-up founded by proven entrepreneurs who sold their last small, scrappy start-up to a publicly traded company.
We believe that life is too short to not love where you work.
When all colleagues champion respect, humility and passion, great things happen.
We are not a meetings-based company (honestly, we can’t stand most meetings); we’re an actions-based company.
We roll up our sleeves, work fast, hit our goals and get back to friends and family.
We’ve practiced and advocated for remote work (work from home) since 2010. We firmly believe that amazing experiences and awesome software don't need to be created in an office.
Success at Backstory
You pride yourself on your kindness, humility and principles.
You self-start, take initiative, stay focused, move fast, and get things done.
You're savvy within your department and Backstory at large.
You're great at collaborating, but get most of your energy from action, not from interaction.
You voice your opinion, seek compromise, and are proud to say, "Thank you. You've changed my opinion."
You're self-aware and thrive off constructive feedback.
You challenge, mentor and learn from your peers.
A contagious commitment to Backstory's success.
You should enjoy crafting elegant and engaging experiences, backed by good quality, readable, testable, and well-documented code. We expect team members to have the discipline to test their own code with a combination of automated and manual testing.
We enjoy challenging each other and collaborating on architecture, design, and best practices. You should too.
