As a Senior Mobile Software Engineer on the JW Player Mobile team, you will use your skills to enhance our JW Player SDK for Android, which enables developers to easily build video and audio playback experiences into any Android application.

Requirements:

  • 5+ years experience building complex Android applications using Java or Kotlin
  • Knowledge of Android SDK performance tools and optimization techniques
  • Experience with multithreading programming
  • Experience writing unit tests and testable code
  • A proven track record of shipping software used in a production environment
  • Experience leading a technical initiative through the entire software development lifecycle

Bonus Points:
