We're a small team, and we expect our teammates to make big impacts enabling our teams to empower athletes everywhere. We need critical thinkers who will enumerate and evaluate potential solutions and pick the right course of action given the set of constraints, while working and collaborating with us and the teams consuming our services.

  • A solid understanding of the Android platform and its capabilities.
  • A solid understanding of OAuth or similar authorization protocols, like the Google+ or Facebook SDKs.
  • Experience building libraries shared across multiple apps.
  • Strong communication skills.
  • A desire to empower others by building core technologies that support multiple products.
  • A computer science degree, or have practiced the art of systems engineering at scale.

You're just as passionate about a strong backend platform, so you're happy working closely with our backend team, who develops our stack of Java and Scala services that run in Amazon Web Services using DynamoDB.
