Software Engineering
Mexico City, Mexico
Posted on Wednesday, January 31, 2024
The Mobile team at Hearsay is a tight-knit, small-but-mighty group of iOS Engineers, Android Engineers, a Quality Engineer, a Designer, and a Product Manager who all work closely together day to day. When we’re not arguing about Xcode vs Android Studio, we’re hanging out on Zoom, bonding over our mutual love for food. We are seeking a proactive Android Engineer with hands-on experience in building Android applications to help us continue raising the bar of our mobile experience. This role has high growth potential in a collaborative environment as you will have the opportunity to build countless features from scratch and dive into the latest and greatest of upcoming Android technologies. This is a distributed team, so being comfortable collaborating in a remote environment is critical. Grow with us!
Regarding Hybrid Work: We provide a lot of flexibility for working in a way that keeps our employees productive. We have a great office in Mexico City that is available for those that want to work from there, or else with the company provided laptop it’s possible to work from anywhere. All we ask in return is being available to work from the office on the infrequent occasions where we have team meetings or out of town visitors, which can be as little as 2-3 days/month.
