Livongo is hiring a

Mobile Engineer (iOS/Android)

Denver, United States

The Opportunity

This is your opportunity to work on a product that makes a difference.  At Teladoc Health, we make apps and products that help people with diabetes, behavioral health, chronic conditions, and more.  Through technology, we are trying to affect people’s health for the better.  Our apps directly engage people to help them live their best lives, and we also do some pretty cool engineering and coding along the way.

As a mobile engineer on the myStrength product, you will be working on a premier Android and iOS app whose focus is to help people with behavioral conditions like depression, anxiety, stress, trauma, sleep issues, and more.   The codebase is ever-evolving, and always adding new features, and even exploring into other fields such as wearables and cross-app integrations.

If you’re our ideal candidate, you have 2+ years of hands-on experience with native mobile apps for the consumer and/or medical space. In this role you’ll work collaboratively with other mobile engineers and product design experts in our Denver office, located in lower downtown within walking distance to Coors Field, Union Station, and the 16th Street Mall. If you’re a guru of iOS but know nothing of Android, or a robot at heart and never tasted fruit—perfect! Cross-platform experience is a bonus, but not a must. However, it’s critical that you have a passion for learning both sides. You must also be able to balance delivery needs against design intent, and understand that product is more valuable in the hands of users than as a design on paper.

You’ll fit right in here if you love witty banter and kombucha.  Also, if you bring impact, passion, curiosity, creativity and analytical insight to your work...well, that’s gonna go far too! We foster a learning environment and welcome ambition and innovation. If you want your work to mean something and you think phones/tablets are the future of all things tech, we’d love to talk with you!


Responsibilities

  • Deliver features and enhancements to the myStrength native mobile apps (Android and iOS)
  • Architect brand new features for both platforms
  • Adopt, adapt, and advance the core value of the Livongo experience, through material design, responsive interaction, and powerful mobile UX
  • Work closely with Design to bring a user-first experience to the masses (including awesome Lottie animations)
  • Implement our spiffy designs in Interface Builder, XML, CALayers, drawables, etc.
  • Work with custom fonts, Lottie animations, activity transitions, multi-device support, localization adjustment, the works (no star wipes though ☹ )
  • Fix bugs in a core service layer or a UI/implementation on iOS/Android
  • Write Unit Tests, UI Tests, and Integration Tests to help our QA Team, and then work through all manner of acceptance criteria, kickbacks, and crazy edge cases
  • Demolish said edge cases with WCAG 2.1 criteria like system font adjustments, Navigator/Voice-Over mode, high contrast, and every imaginable way to use that smart device
  • Frequently communicate updates to stakeholders and deliver projects on-time
  • Respect and uphold platform-specific ideology (both platforms have equal say and the app should be a good iOS app to iOS users and a good Android app to Android users; no exceptions!)

Candidate Profile

  • 2+ years of native mobile development (Android in Java/Kotlin or iOS in Swift/Objective-C)
  • Working knowledge of the mobile networking stack and client-side persistent
  • data store. (Room DB, Realm DB or equivalent
  • A strong foundation in OOP principles and design patterns (data structures, algorithms, polymorphism, observers, composition, etc.)
  • Excellent communication, teamwork and collaboration skills
  • The presentation skills to effectively communicate how your designs solve specific business problems
  • A passion for building accessible iOS and Android apps that are visually delightful and easy to use
  • The ability to thrive in a fast-moving start-up culture with aggressive product development and launch plans
  • A love for solving new user experience challenges and an undying passion to do right by the user in terms of experience and platform expectations
  • A thoughtful and professional reaction to feedback and critiques during code reviews and architecture discussions
  • The ability to innovate in meaningful ways
  • A willingness to learn the “other side” and become capable in both Android and iOS and eventually own features and implementations on both platforms
  • Impress us even more:
  • Finesse with reverse engineering endpoints and services
  • Experience working with adaptive and fluid native apps (size classes, xdp folders, multi-resolution assets, rotation layouts, etc.)
