Tinder is hiring a

Senior Android Engineer

Los Angeles, United States

As a Senior Android Developer at Tinder you have the unique opportunity of joining a company with tens of millions of downloads, but a small enough team where your impact is felt. From your first day on the job you will be contributing to core features of Tinder. You've already built multiple Android apps and are ready to meet the unique challenges of supporting a huge user base while continuing to add new features and products as Tinder keeps skyrocketing. The Tinder design team is first class and you will no longer be working on lifeless apps with lists of data and boring screens.

This position is for either our Tinder LA HQ or our new Tinder Palo Alto office!

In this Senior Android Engineer role, you will:

  • Develop new features and fix bugs for the Tinder Android app 
  • Work closely with Backend Engineers to deploy exciting new Tinder features 
  • Work with graphics team to design and wireframe modern interfaces 

We're looking for:

  • Someone who obsesses over Activity transitions and  animations (eg. you know your way around a Canvas and can do property animations in your sleep.  You could implement the Tinder Card Stack yourself and have ideas on how to optimize it.)
  • A strong software architect and well versed in design patterns.  (eg. you've worked with MVP, Clean or MVVM and know the benefits of each.  You've written your own Respositories and Factories.)
  • Understanding the value of Dependency Injection and have implemented Dagger
  • Someone who loves test coverage.  (eg. you're well versed with Mockito and JUnit.  You can write Espresso tests when needed.)
  • Someone on the RxJava train.  (eg. you know when to map or flatMap, but when something shouldn't be Observable.)
  • Consuming RESTful service is old hat for you, you use RetroFit and move on to the more important pieces of your app
  • Understanding Material design guidelines, but are not a slave to it.  (eg. you know how to be a good Android citizen while maintaining a strong unique brand identity.)
  • Someone interested in Kotlin, who's using Retrolambda and know what's new in Java 8
  • Able to mentor junior developers, impart your knowledge so they can become an engineer of the same quality as your self
  • Comfortable working with legacy code and improving it
As part of our team, you’ll enjoy:
  • The hustle of a startup with the impact of a global business
  • Tremendous opportunity to solve some of the industry’s most exciting problems
  • Working with an extraordinary team of smart, creative, fun and highly motivated people
  • Comprehensive health coverage, competitive salary, 401(k) match and meaningful equity
  • Unlimited vacation and flexible working hours
  • Daily catered lunches, endless supply of refreshments, basketball court, fitness classes and social events
  • Modern, uplifting work environment in an ideal location
