Senior Android Engineer

| Greater NYC Area

Getting together with real people in real life makes powerful things happen. Side hustles become careers, ideas become movements, and chance encounters become lifelong connections. At Meetup, you’ll help create the future of real community—a future where people show up, do things, and actually talk. 

Senior Android Engineers are leaders on the team and strong contributors. If you're applying for this role, you excel not just technically, but also in your ability to collaborate with your colleagues. You help drive architecture decisions, estimate project time frames, and manage sub-tasks. More than other engineers, you should be an advocate for Android best practices, great usability, and exceptional quality.

  • Experienced: You’re well-versed in developing quality Android applications from conception through Google Play Store launch. You have a deep understanding of the full suite of Android tooling in Kotlin and Java including threading, building layouts, debugging and performance optimization.
  • Customer focused: You love good software and design. You understand the importance of bringing value to our users through quality software.
  • A team player: You are the consummate team player. You work well with others. You aim to learn from, teach, and give timely and specific feedback to your colleagues.
  • Adaptable: You can handle changing requirements and difficult problems. You build for the long-term while managing iterative, short-term needs.
  • Values-aligned: You have a dedication to the company’s core mission of cultivating local community worldwide.

What you do with our team:

  • Focus on building out the future of the flagship Meetup app using Kotlin and Java
  • Work with Core engineers to define how data should be structured and delivered via our APIs
  • Collaborate with designers to ensure that the app is beautiful and a pleasure to use for all our users
  • Define engineering approach to product features in collaboration with our product team and Android peers
  • Manage and improve our app release process through tooling and automation

An Insider's view of Meetup

What does your typical day look like?

As an engineer at Meetup, my mission is to build things that help product teams focus on our users and develop our product faster and with better quality. My team mob programs or pair programs by default, which works great for us because it increases code and architecture, knowledge sharing, focus, productivity and team bonding.
