  • Mentor junior developers, lead the implementation of features, work cross-functionally to unblock your team
  • Work closely with our product and design teams to customize the Compass experience for the Android platform
  • Analyze and optimize component code for efficiency and performance
  • Carefully evaluate the technical tradeoffs of every decision
  • Carry out code reviews to guarantee code quality

  • Knowledge of software design patterns and Android best practices
  • Ability to collaborate across engineering and design teams
