Software Engineer, Android – Zenly

negotiable Expires in 2 weeks


Zenly is a map that lets you know what your friends and family are up to. It’s a map based on your people, there to help you move a little closer to them.

We’re a small team of 50 passionate people determined to offer an alternative to products that were meant to connect us but only alienated us. An alternative that represents a true reflection of your world and those you care most about.

How we work

As an Android Engineer you will work in a long-lived dedicated team/squad alongside contributors of all disciplines (Backend, Design, iOS, Product, Scientists, QA). You and your team will be responsible for an overall company goal and will work together at defining the roadmap that will lead to the most impact.

Currently, Android Engineers are working in teams like Conversation, Growth, App Platform and Maps to quote only non-internal team names 🙂

Our App

Zenly is written mainly in Kotlin with remains of Java but also quite uniquely in Go (we embed a shared library written in Go that deals with stuff like data synchronization, Network transport and cross-os app feature backends like the Chat or the Location pipeline). Our min SDK is 21 😁

We make extensive usage of RxJava in structural parts of the app like (lifecycle bound tasks, scheduling, multi-threading, reactive UI model, automated tracing) and have a fair number of internal frameworks built on top of it.

Last but not least, we try to push Zenly to the edge of the devices capabilities and had much fun making non traditional heavy UI experiences and animations on Android, sometimes heavily tweaking or going beyond what the system normally provides.
