Android Engineer

Android Engineer

Mobify is looking for a talented Engineer with experience building native applications to join the Product Team! As a member of a cross discipline delivery team, you'll work on extending our platform to bridge web components to native APIs in Android apps.

We think the web is pretty much the best thing that happened since Cool Ranch Doritos. It's the most powerful and democratic medium on the planet. But native development is pretty cool too. Lately we’ve been thinking of apps as souped up browsers for powering unique web experiences. Native apps get to have a lot of fun, making use of sensor and messaging APIs that aren’t available in web browsers yet. Exposing native APIs to the web also presents interesting security challenges. With great power comes great responsibility! This is a great position to be on the forefront of modern mobile development.
