Android Engineer

Department: WW
Project Location(s): San Francisco
Compensation: DOE

If you’ve got great Android chops and want to see your work appreciated by millions of users, the WW Mobile team is the place for you. We’re not your mother’s Weight Watchers! We’re an agile tech startup within the organization. And we ship every 2 weeks, so there’s always something exciting and challenging to work on.

Working for WW means you get to write code that makes a huge impact on people’s lives. You can be a force for good.

We strive to be early adopters of the latest Android features, from Kotlin to Architecture Components. We love using libraries like Retrofit, Dagger, RxJava2. We also use tools like our own Gradle plugin, Fastlane, and CircleCI to help us write modular code and quickly deliver apps to Beta testers and the Play Store. Maybe there’s a cool new framework or tool you’ve been dying to try out. Or maybe you want to write your own. WW is the place to do it.

You:

  • Love learning about the latest tools and technologies
  • Write clean, well-architected, self-documenting code with tests
  • Want to learn from other engineers and share your knowledge with the team
  • Seek out challenges that make you grow — as a person, and as a software engineer
  • Participate in WW code reviews, hackathons, and tech summits
  • Bring a critical mind to identifying and solving issues and bugs
  • Aren’t afraid to share your ideas and raise red flags when appropriate
  • Want to evangelize the WW Mobile team via open source, tech meetups, and conferences
  • Don’t mind taking occasional trips to visit the San Francisco office!
